It is till very early days and the work done by all of you is fantastic. I would suggest that a sleep over is too soon especially when you know she is having relapses. You could always say to your grand daughter "that would be something to look forward to shall we keep that in mind for when Mummy is a bit better" Though I can't remember how old your Grand daughter is. You are right it is a slow process and you don't know what will happen to give too much too soon.

I agree with Irene, Its fantastic you are all working together for the best interests of the child, I also agree it may be a little too soon to be thinking of overnight stays just yet, 6 weeks since her last relapse isnt that long a time really, What you dont want to happen is for overnight contact to be established and then have to stop for another relapse, I know nothing in these situations is certain but you need to be as comfortable and confident as possible that its not likely to happen again before you move things forward. Only you can decide when you feel this way,

^^^^^that is an excellent suggestion of what to say to any young child on a subject like this.
