It might not be an arc but it does have her wallowing in self-pity.
Panel 1: We start off with Mike in bed holding Super-Teddy coughing his lungs out as a vaporizer chugs away in the background.
Panel 2: He then yells for his MA!!!! because not only is the Vapo-rub-laden steam not working, he also needs emotional support.
Panel 3: A bleary-eyed Elly gives him a spoonful of medicine and thought-bubbles that she remembers when her own mother came to her when she was sick at night.
Panel 4: As she slouches away from Mike in disgust directed towards herself for not being a superwoman, she thinks to herself that Marian always looked like a vision of loveliness.
Summary: You're not going to have to worry about that, Elly. What Mike, April and Liz are going to remember is a peevish idiot who blamed them for getting sick and couldn't be bothered to reassure them.
