I'm so sorry to hear of your husband's ill helath. You'll find it difficult to obtain a mortgage with the IVA still on your credit files, and it'll be on there for A period of six years from the date of approval even if it completes earlier than expected.
I'm no expert on mortgage issues, but there are a few members on here that are, so I would await their response.

There are lenders open to you, even with the IVA still showing on your credit report. You will need to seek the help of a mortgage broker who knows how to deal with people in your position.
