In brief: Be supportive
Your best actions are the heartfelt ones.
You can never know what they are feeling unless u went thru it yourself, but call or visit & offer your support in any way you can. If you avoid the issue & are otherwise close, it will hurt. Some ds kids i follow have a handful of problems & some have remarkably good health.
