    my granddaughter had a miscarriage last week. it was discovered at her 6 week ultrasound. she is still crying a lot and seems so depressed, she doesn't want to see anyone but husband and mom.
    i will see her tomorrow, and i don't know what to say to comfort her.
    i don't want to make her feel worse.

    I know this is a little late, sorry... but hopefully this can still be useful for you! I hope it went well. Its hard to know exactly what to say when you're on the receiving end of an "I'm sorry" in these circumstances... more important than anything else you can say to her, let her know how much you love her and care about her! She may feel like some part of this is her fault (its NOT, I just know that's how I felt) or she may be feeling that her worth has declined. She's probably not feeling good about herself, overall. Let her know you love her. Feeling loved the biggest thing that kept me together. Good luck
