I am scared

Not as scared as she is. Nor her sons & husband. Nor our mum. This is not the first time we've had to face the thought of losing her.

And it twists my gut that I cannot tell her it will be alright. Because I don't know. And I am scared,

Crohns is a vile disease, which will cause you to starve to death unless treated. Sadly, the treatments are barely less life threatening than the disease itself.

I am scared.
