Sending prayers to your FMIL, I hope she is ok! I think the bigger concern is her health rather than whether she makes it to your wedding.

I hope things work out for your MIL. My father had a heart attack a few years back, and if it makes you feel any better, hospitals generally put every heart attack in the ICU. They are much better equipped for “life saving” actions should she need it, so being in the ICU isn’t necessarily the worst of the worst.

I don’t know why it’s important that this happened a week before your wedding. I hope she makes a good recovery.

Oh, no! Don’t panic, and wait to see what her doctor says. If it’s a minor heart attack, she may not even need surgery!

Good luck to you and your (future) family!

@lampshade:  I’m sure it is a big deal to OP no matter when it happens. But yes, it happening a week before the wedding probably makes things more stressfil for her and her FI. Don’t you want your mom there to see you get married? Seriously.


@earthbiscuit:  thoughts and prayers are with you, your FI, and his family.

Idk why people are making it seem weird that you mentioned it was a week before your wedding! It’s your FIs mom and she had a heart attack right before your wedding, that’s terrible! I hope that she makes a full recovery!!

@earthbiscuit:  My dad had a quintuple (5) bypass and he was 60 years old.

Heart surgery is amazing. There’s no saying she’ll need heart surgery but if she does, it really has come a long way. Heart attacks are no longer a death sentence. I do hope things look up for your MIL. Best wishes to your family. <3

GREAT BIG (((( HUGS ))))

Cause I can only imagine how stressful this must me…

Heart Attack – FMIL – Groom’s Mom – a Loved One – He’s freaked out / in pain – Just before His & Your Wedding – everthing up in the air – the unknown

And more unknown

Ya I GET it, you are freaking out and scared all at once

I’d be having a major panic / anxiety attack myself.

You are going to just have to take one day at a time… whether the Wedding goes forward or not / gets postponed… will be determined in the days / week to come

Your friends & loved ones will understand

(Even your Vendors will probably understand)

For now take care of each other… including yourself.

I will send good ~~vibes~~ your way… and hopefully your MIL will be on the road to recovery in the days to come.  Heart Attacks / Heart Surgery is scary (my Dad has had I think 3 ops in total since his 60s)… but as @Hyperventilate:  said modern medicine is pretty incredible… lol, for the record my Dad is still kicking around and he’s almost 90 now.

(( HUGS )) again.

@earthbiscuit:  +1!  Of course the fact it’s a week out from your wedding is important!  It’s not like it’s just one of the most important days of your FH’s (& your) lives.  Hugs to both of you, I really hope she starts to improve soon!
