Losing my husband

I lost my husband on Wednesday, 3 weeks before he had been Involved in a head on collision with another lorry. He walked away with a few broken fingers some cuts a huge egg/lump to his head lots of bruising and a bad leg from where is was trap under the steering wheel. The other driver had been driving on the wrong side of the road.
The hospital told us my husband was fine and he would heal in time.
I took him back I was worried about his head and how hot his leg was, again they said he was fine.
Wednesday he collapsed and was having trouble breathing, help came I was holding his hand he looked at me and said I’m going to go :cry::cry:, I think he died then but they kept him alive with CPR etc while waiting on another team.
I’m just so broken everyone said they couldn’t believe how he could walk away from that crash.
I’m angry, sad, broken I just have no idea what to do.
The police want post-mortem, to re charge the driver if it’s related to the accident, they want an inquest too, this is delaying making funeral plans.
My support network is amazing I’m just struggling, I’m crying all the time, the doctors gave me sedatives and sleeping tablets, I still can’t rest, I wake up screaming dreaming about him :cry::cry::cry::cry:
