  • I'm sorry to hear your family is going through such a difficult time. Of course I'll be thinking of you. It's nice you want to be supportive of your stepmom. You don't say how old you are, or if you live in the same town, so I'm not sure what you might be able to do. How about offering to do things around her house, run errands, cook meals, shop so that she can spend as much time as she wants with her sister at the hospital? Take her a meal at the hospital if you can. See if she needs something to read, or a pillow or blamket to make her vigil more comfortable. When a loved one is in a health crisis it is emotionally exhausting for those who love that person, so be understanding if your stepmom is cranky or abrupt. Offer to make phone calls for her, walk her dog or just take the worry of what's going on at home off her mind so she's free to concentrate on your stepaunt. No getting around it, this is a tough time for your family. Much love to all of you.
  • Very saddened to learn about this, Miri. You and your family will be in my thoughts. I don't have the best relationship with my father, but just being there with him at his half-brother's funeral seemed to be enough. It wasn't as dramatic as I thought it was going to be and was probably the best thing I could have done for him, for myself and for the rest of the family. I wish I had better advice. If you need anything... feel free to email me. {{{hugs}}}

  • hope my thoughts help and wish your family luck.
  • will keep you and your family in my prayers, the best thing you could do is just be there for those who are grieving, lend support, and comfort.
  • I'll be praying for you and your family. I'm not sure whether your step aunt will pull through, if not, I'll pray for God to give you all the strength to handle that situation. As far as advice for what you can do for your stepmom, I believe LynfromNM said it all. Take care.
  • I will do that... And, I would imagine that if you don't have the best relationship with your stepmom that you should just be as civil as possible with her. She probably would appreciate it most if you are just there for her and helpful.
  • I will keep youe stepaunt in my prayers The best thing you can do is be there for your stepmom to give her as much support and comfort as you can.
  • I will most definitely pray for your stepaunt miri, im so sad to hear this.. all you can do is be there for your step mom, be there if she needs you honey. take care xxxx
  • Of course I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers. Will you also keep a family around my home town in your prayers? They lost their 4 month old son to SIDS this morning when he was at the sitters. An angel got his wings, but your prayers are still needed for the family left behind. God bless you and your family!
  • I will keep her in my prayers, i am so sorry that she is hurt. You might not have the best relationship but it sure shows you care! I hope she pulls through and i hope you and your dad keep your chins up. Think positive
  • Absolutely I will pray for your step aunt and her family members. As far as your prayers, while you are praying visualize her in a state of contentment. In a place where she would love to be, at peace. Your step mom has a lot on her mind now, as you already know. I would say to keep her in your prayers as well. Visualizing her somewhere that is safe and comfortable for her. Praying for them is the best thing to do now. As far as showing your stepmom the sympathy you feel... find the words to write a note or on a card. Many time when a tragedy of this magnitude occurs family members come to stay and help the closest family. It is a tremendous help when someone can help the people visiting or family by making food, or serving it. Cleaning up whenever you can, taking trash out etc.. I will be sending prayers to you. Take care of you and yours.
