How to deal with in-law's illness?

My fiancee’s mom is very sick, probably terminally so. It is an extremely sad and frustrating time. I’ve tried to “be there” for my partner for anything he asks, i.e. hang out at the hospital with him, clean their house, bring over food, pick up groceries/prescriptions, take out their dog, etc etc.

Yesterday he told me he felt “alone” and that he thought we would be more of a “team” throughout this. It really took me aback as I don’t know what else I can be doing. I ask him if they need anything multiple times every day.

So I’m like… is this just his stress and emotions talking, or am I somehow dropping a ball I’m not even aware of?

I’m mostly just venting I guess but any thoughts are welcome.

It sounds like you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing, which is supporting your fiance during this difficult time. He may be speaking out of grief, but I would ask him specifically what is making him feel alone.

Ivylad’s mother is dying. All I can do is make things as easy for him as possible so he can spend as much time with her as he can.
