I just got an email from a friend of mine who I’ve not seen for a while, but I was really looking forward to seeing her at my hen party and wedding. She’s had a heart condition since she was a baby and apparently she’s been really unwell, and is waiting for a date for an operation. She definitely can’t make the hen party, as it may make her more sick, and might have to miss the wedding too depending on when her op date comes through. We live about 3 hours apart, so can’t meet up very often and I’m not very good at keeping in touch over email or phone. I feel terrible because I didn’t even know she’d been poorly and it’s pretty serious and I don’t know when I’ll get to see her again.
The worst thing about it is that she felt like she had to apologise that she has to miss out on the hen party and that she might have to withdraw her RSVP quite close to the date when obviously all I want is for her to be well.

Awww, that is awful!
Is it possible you could make a trip to see her? or maybe send her a care package?

Friends like you two are what life is all about. Ask her to keep you updated on her health and if you are having a photographer or videographer, send her a package her way. If she’s going to be on bedrest, Im sure watchingyour wedding or seeing pictures would keep her from getting bored and will lift her spirits.

@clumsylawyer: I am sorry to hear that 🙁 but it is a good thing her heart problem is being addressed. I hope it all goes well.
I would make it a priority to call/visit her. She’s facing something really scary and your support would mean the world to her.

Thank you all for your kind messages. I do plan to go and visit her. Although I’m not able to go up at a weekend until 23 June I’m going to try and get a couple of days off work so I can go up during the week. If I can’t get there any time sooner then I’m definitely going to at least send her some flowers. And try to be better at keeping in touch in the meantime.
At least it’s reassuring to know that her husband will be taking great care of her. He’s also a friend of mine, and she honestly couldn’t wish for anyone better to help her through this, so I’m grateful for that. It does really put everything into perspective though, when I’m fretting about stupid things for the wedding there’s always stuff going on that’s actually important.
