Me and five friends wanted to try out DnD, none of us have played before but I know the most about DnD (read: I listened to The Adventure Zone and watched some videos on YouTube) so I volunteered as DM. I decided on running Death House because it sounded cool and then seeing how we'll progress from there. I realized it would be too hard so I decided to dial down the number of monsters and give them hints here and there. But

But then, one of my players got sick and another one decided he didn't want to play just yet after all. The sick one was going to play as cleric and the three remaining ones don't want to play any class that can heal for some reason. So now I'm stuck trying to run Death House for three players with no healer and we play in three days so it's not like I'd have time to prepare anything else, even if I didn't have work. Any advice?
