Just been talking to my sister who had seen one of my neighbours (their children go to the same school, although they are not really friends with each other).
Anyway she's told my sister that her dh is in intensive care fighting leukaemia and they have nearly lost him times and he still remains critical
I don't really know the lady except to say morning to or hello to at church on a Sunday. I feel I should do something for her but don't know what. She has 2 boys and I can't imagine what she must be going through, she's very quiet and they keep themselves to themselves really, but hate to think of her going through this and not helping in some way.
Should I make contact or leave it?(she is spending a lot of time at the hospital) Would she think I've been gossiping with my sister? Any advice
you could just put a card through her door saying you have heard about her dh and say could you help in anyway way, if she doesnt want the hekp, i guess she will just ignore the card. shes probably going to hell and back will appreciate the sentiment at least.
Yep , going with the majority here, send a card, with a note saying that you will help out with childcare etc if needed, put you r mobile number on and tell her that she can all you in case of emergency (but only put things that you mean or you may end up being phoned at 3 am!!)
