The Hardest part for my was that the fact I felt like everything had changed in my house. My wife had the duel role will I was gone and never had to ask what my opinion was about something. If my son wanted something she would say yes or no with out asking what I thought. But when something negative happened it would be I had to deal with this for a year now its your turn. The best advise I can give you brother is take everything one day at a time and everything will fall back into its place.
