You will remain sane, though these will be uncomfortable times. In my experience of sriously ill kids, its usually wise to do as you are doing, and expect them to keep to their usual chores, only making appropriate allowance for any limitations imposed by the illness. Even VERY seriously ill kids have said to me that they didn't like being treate as though they had suddenly become fragile porcelain. One said : "I don't think they really love me any more - they never scold me or get cross any more !"
Is it possible that her brother is becoming so combative as his way of handling much the same situation, and his anger over his sister's illness ? There can also be conflict between sibs when one seems to be getting special attention though this is due only to the needs of the illness
