... So sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. My experience is limited (diagnosed in August 2003, so I have only a few months). I would keep her warm at all times (just in case it's cold agglutinin, whatever, which they thought I had at first). I was down to 4 but still functioning, but I don't know how.
