My future mother-in-law, the dearest old lady ever (88 years old..) entered the hospital on saturday night and is really really bad . She’s been very weak for ages but now she had a stomach bleeding so severe she alrady had 2 blood transfusions and is having 2 more today.Doctors say her conditiom is very serious and that we must prepare for the worst..we’re 2 months away from the wedding! Of course while we were preparing everything. even the date pick, this possibility was on our minds..”what if..”..but we can’t live with an IF the entire time, can we? And if the worse happens, what shall we do???? Postone? Go ahead with the cerimony but quieter and no music/dance??what??
Has anyone had to deal with this??
PS Please note that i am devastaded with the possibilty of losing my daughter’s grandmother. She’s such an incredible, bright and sweet person and i will miss her terribly..

major hugs and lots of prayers for ur family and her. i would just keep things how it is until you really know what her condition is. if the transfusions dont work, ect… really hoping everything will turn out good for u and ur family.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. My aunt died recently (cancer), so I was in a bit of a similar situation. I’m sure your Future Mother-In-Law would want you to celebrate as before, but you could find a way to recognize her memory in the ceremony or reception, just so you can share how important and wonderful she was in your life. My best wishes for you and your family.

Sorry to hear the bad news!! At this point i would wait to see what happens but if she does pass think of what she would want you to do…would she want you to be sad and change your wedding or would she want you to think of it as not only a celebration of love and a celebration of her life? I wouldn’t think she would want you to be sad for her.
Just remember however that yes your wedding is very important but makesurreal you don’t give off the impression to others that her passingI would cause an inconvenience to your wedding. Not saying you are, but as brides we sometimes lose focus on other things in life than the wedding. My finances uncle was in intensive care and we went to say goodbye to him and my BFF who is getting married soon acted like I should be more concerned about posting details of her bachelorette party on Facebook than seeing him
Good luck and my prayers are with her and you!
