What I've Learned (two things I forgot)

One, remember that you're in a situation that is more triage than control. Let that help guide your priorities. 

Second, if you have a therapist, get in to see them as soon as possible. If you don't have a therapist, the hospital has social workers and grief counselors, and it's important to talk to someone who has specific experience guiding people who are going through this. Chaplains can be helpful as well. 

It's a little different, talking to someone you might not know, but what people who have this kind of experience do is offer perspective in some small way, which is incredibly helpful.
