  • I don't know if ur religious but I would say we'll just keep praying and stay positive don't give up hope! The age of miracles is still with us! Saying everything will work out and just be a pillar of strength for her :)

  • just encourage her to be strong and remind her that whatever happens she will be able to deal with, and let her know that you will always be by her side for anything. ive had a few tragedies and moments of worry with my friends...some turn out to be miracles and some we have lost. good luck and god bless you both!
