I am sorry for your situation and hope that your husband fully recovers. I think the first step you may want to take is to consult with a few personal injury attorneys to make sure you get a fair settlement from the automobile insurance.
I can only imagine what the medical bills are but you may be able to get a settlement from the accident that can help with your note.
I would also contact your county government and elicit information about programs that may be able to help you. Social security may also be a means of aid.
I truly hope that you are able to keep your property but if it gets to be too much and you fall behind, perhaps you can use some of the techniques that are discussed here to keep the property (rental) or sell the property (lease/option or maybe contract for deed) and downsize to a smaller unit. At least that way you can protect your credit rating.
I wish you the best. If you want to email me personally to bounce off some ideas feel free to contact me at email@example.com
