I won't have you publicly stoned this time.  :)

BG is first to reply on grammar issues.
Anyone can reply (first, or after) on content, the topic being discussed.

But you are correct, we don't want -moH here.  We can use -choH, "while we are 
sick we become weak".  Depending on what you want, you could go without 
suffixes, "while we are sick we are weak."

/pujmoH/, the subject causes the object to be weak.
