I always thought it was cruel not to give Aleksey morphine if he needed it. True, it's addictive, but he didn't have access to it. It isn't like he would overdose.

how did they bare up as well as they did is my question?

I think the reason for that was their deep religiousness. They thought that everything was some kind of trial placed on them by God to test them. The reason why they were able to get on was that...they simply accepted Alexei's illness and the situation they were all in. They did everything possible to ease Alexei's pain even in Tobolsk. They got used to critical situations with Alexei. The strongest weapon and the greatest comfort they had was their solidarity within the family.

  I quite agree and very well said. They even kept going when the family was split apart for those 6 weeks in the spring of '18 ....because the family solidarity was internal as well...each carried it within.

Yes, when the family was split apart it must have been the hardest time they ever experienced. But I think they knew that they were still a unity. They must have thought something like: "As long as we're together on earth we will be together in heaven. As long as we're together nobody can cause harm to us." But sadly they were mistaken. :-(
