Luna, I am sorry you and your family have to deal with this but welcome to our community.
I know all of this is very hard and knowing what to do about your husbands depression adds to it. But you have to take the lead in this. If your husband has already shown that he is depressed enough to do himself harm you have to get him help. PLEASE call his doctor NOW and tell them what is going on and ask for advise on how to get your husband appropriate help.
We can talk later about how survivable non invasive bladder cancer is. But right now you need to get him help. Please let us know how you are doing but please do not hesitate and seek help immediately.
We are here for you.
