Sunday morning we got the call that my FSIL’s fiancé (they got engaged a few months ago after being together for 6+ years) was med flighted to Boston after being in a head on collision. He lost his spleen, one kidney, completely shattered one leg, and had massive internal bleeding (a 10 on a scale of 1-10). The doctors did not give us much hope for his survival and we all thought we would be a going to a funeral a few days before our wedding. *I felt and still feel like a horrible human being for even thinking and worrying about my wedding in the wake of this tragedy.* After several surgeries and over 50 units of blood they have manged to stop most, but not all of the bleeding, and he is started to clot on his own. he was finally stable enough last night o have a cat scan and there is no brain damage, thank god. We truly believe that we are witnessing a miracle.
I feel so awful for my Future Sister-In-Law and just can’t even imagine. My heart is just breaking for her. When we finally left the hospital she pulled me aside to say she was still going to try to come to the wedding (she is FIs best woman, they are very close). I told her to focus on one thing at a time and not to worry about it. I’m not going to lie and say I haven’t worried about it, but it just seems pretty small in comparison.
I just thank god that it doesn’t seem like we are going to be going to a funeral this week, that he is fighting and getting better everyday, every hour even. I know that god will save him, I have faith. Please, if you pray, keep him and my Future Sister-In-Law in your prayers. I’m not going to put his name out there for obvious reasons, but I believe god will know who you are talking about. Thank you.

I am not a religious bee but all my positive vibes and best wishes are coming to him and the rest of you. I hope he recovers soon. Stay strong for each other.
Don’t beat yourself up about thinking about your wedding. I am sure many other bees close to their wedding date would have this fleeting thought as well. Please try not to be too hard on yourself, as energy wasted on feeling bad is energy that could be used for good vibes and prayers. X

Prayers are on the way for this young man and your Future Sister-In-Law.
Don’t beat yourself up for thinking about your wedding. The mind can kind of go into “covering all the bases” when you are in an emergency and I’m sure that is what happened.

Sending good thoughts and positive vibes your way.
As other PP have said, please don’t beat yourself up for also thinking about the impact of these events on your wedding. It’s only natural to want all of your loved ones to be with you on your special day. I think it was brave of you to share your feelings with us, and I can tell you are genuinely concerned for your FBIL’s well being.
