I’m so sorry you’re going through this!! Hopefully everything will work out. Is there anyone who can drive to get them? Can you set up Skype for the wedding? (I know it wouldn’t be the same but it would allow her to see everything.)

First, I really hope it works out and your mom gets better.  How scary!  I would be so beside myself if that happened.  Anyway you can postpone? 

If not, do you have a friend that would be willing to go pick up your parents?  30 minutes isn’t that far, especailly if you can give them some gas money.  I would totally do that for a friend on thier wedding day.

Sending lots of love/good vibes her (and your!) way!

If they can’t drive, and she’s OK to make it, can you arrange for a limo go pick them up?
Worth the extra expense, IMO.

@MrsSweetT:  I’m so sorry to hear about all this craziness, I’d stay in contact with the doctors and ask them about how much they’d recommend her coming to the wedding. You should definitely look at retaining a car service that can take them to the ceremony. If your mother is strong enough to remain for the ceremony but not the reception, the car can take them home to rest.

@MrsSweetT:   Is there a cabulance service in your area?  We used to have one near us – if your mom is weak but otherwise able to travel the half hour to your wedding, she would be able to lie down and have a nurse with her for the ride to and from.  I wonder if some senior or rehab centers might be able to help?

@MrsSweetT:  I’m so sorry your mom is ill! 🙁 Do you have Uber where you live? you can send a black car or SUV to get them and then drive them home afterwards.

@MrsSweetT:  First off, I’m sorry you’re going through this and I’m glad to hear everything went well.  Hopefully she feels up to coming on Saturday! As far as transportation, I’m sure only being 30 minutes away there is someone who could drive her – if not, I would maybe contact a car service to have a car or even a taxi (not as comfortable of a ride).

Good luck!!
