I wrote about my family having a run of illness a month or so ago & while my elderly Mum & MIL have improved, my SIL is still gravely ill. While we try to be supportive & there for her, the treatment keeping her alive is attacking her immune system & she has to keep her distance because the risk of germs. The saddest part is not been able to give her a hug when she really needs one. I try to give her updates of the family & things that may interest her but it is so very hard assuring her she will get better because we don’t know if a bone marrow transplant will help.
