It bothers you that Lief seems so resigned to whatever disease this is - though, to be fair, ti's typically extremely apathetic and fatalistic by default. You sit on the edge of tir bed again, reaching out to rest your hoof on tirs. "Lief, why are you so sure that there's no cure? We don't even know what you have ..."
"It's nothing. I just don't feel well. I feel like I'm dying and I can't see it getting any better." Ti stares blankly at the ceiling, tir eyes flat and glassy. "Even if there was a cure, you'd never find it. You don't even know what you're looking for."
"Yes I do! I have a plan. I'm either going to go to Geweihburg or Hirschweg," you argue. "You know some people in Geweihburg, Lief - are there any good doctors there? Anyone who you think could help?"
Lief sighs softly and remains quiet for a long time before speaking. "There's one person, a biotheology professor. He splits his time between the two universities, because he's one of the few biotheologists in the area - but when I was at the Geweihburg Academy, he taught me. He knows about curses, plagues, sicknesses ... but he could be in either city. You probably wouldn't be able to find him anyway, and he'd probably never agree to see you ..."
Ti's starting to get repetitive, and when ti starts in on a doom-and-gloom tailspin you know better than to press the issue. From here on out you'd get nothing but "you're going to fail anyway" no matter what you say.
If you could pray to Gönner for tir, you would in a heartbeat - but each god focuses on their own children. If your prayers to Oberin have gone unheeded, there's no way you'd get a response from a god who isn't even responsible for you.
You could attempt to find a runner, but it'll be a little difficult to find someone in the village who can just drop what they're doing to go off a days' trip away. And even if you took a cart, Lief is still in no condition to be leaving bed, let alone the village.
Fritzi is currently single, and for good reason - but that's not your story to tell. And as far as you know, Lief isn't close with tir family. You're not even sure where they are, so you doubt they'd be moved to care about the Traurig's condition.
Right now, you have 3000 Saat to spend. That should be enough for the basics - maybe you'll even be able to buy some fancy magicka.
Briefly, magicka are any items that give you artificial talents. They are usually piercings or tattoos, but piercings are much more common - magicka tattoos are unbelievably expensive, and they're also illegal in some parts of the country. Wearing magicka allows you to cast spells or use abilities that you wouldn't have normally, but if you use jewelry, it usually runs out after a certain number of uses.
You can explain more about magicka and their uses and limitations when you go to the Apothecary!
