- Wedding: November 1999
My first fitting was supposed to be June 15th but my seamstress had a power outtage and got behind. I was ok with that since my wedding is still pretty far off. She just called me this morning to tell me it was ready. Ive been looking forward to this for months and today, Im having a really hard time getting excited. It’s also my FI birthday. See his dad got sick at the beginning of this year. He was in the hospital from Jan 28th – March 23rd. We almost lost him. He has a bone disease and he got dbl pneumonia twice, had 2 heart attacks, developed blood clots etc. Most of that time he was in ICU. We were all overjoyed when he came home. I lost my own dad very suddenly in 2003 ( I made a post about that on another thread on Fathers Day). His dad is awesome and he has welcomed me into the family with open arms! He was so happy when we told him we were getting married. My FI takes care of him in EVERY way, bathing, changing, you get the picture. He asked us if he got sick again, would we move the wedding up and we of course agreed. Well, the past few days he has taken a turn for the worse.We all thought he was slowly but surely getting better. MY FI has been running their family business pretty much alone since his dad got sick. It’s behind their house. Last week , he was able to wheel him out there and he got to work a little.He was so excited! It was wonderful to see him doing something and he was pretty happy. It seemed to lift his spirits to be back in the shop and he was making progress and getting stronger.But now, he is not doing very well. Starting a few days ago, he was sleeping more and complaining of back pain. Fathers Day , he was only up a short time. He is usually the first one awake in the morning but today, FI had to wake him and lift him into the wheelchair. He only stayed up long enough to take his meds and had to lay back down.I feel so badly for my FI. I really don’t feel like trying on my dress today but I suppose I better get going.
