- Wedding: August 2012
So I am just not sure what to do anymore. My future-mother-inlaw is dying of cancer. They found spots on her lungs again in December ( his mother has been fighting cancer for 5 years already), she was just going to go through her third round of chemo/radiation, so me and my fiance didn’t think too much about it. We knew she would be better for our September wedding. Well three weeks ago she went into the hospital for stomach pains, and from there it was not good news. Kidney fucntion was down, so they started her on meds and stopped chemo and kept her in the hospital a week. She was home, we went and visited and her legs were very swollen ( which bothered me a lot). We had just seen her and got a call that she was headed back to the hospital, she was having a hard time breathing. So once again she was in the hospital a week, her kidney function got better, swelling was gone, but they did find that she has congestive heart failure. We went and saw her last Sunday, and it was the best I had seen her in weeks, but me and my fiance knew what we had to do, we asked her if she wanted us to move up the wedding, becuase we really want her to be able to see us get married. She stated that she is going to make it to our wedding, so no we do not need to move up the date. Well since our visit she has gone now the third time in four weeks into the hospital, they doctors now give her only a few days, or weeks to live. I don’t even have a picture with both of his parents and myself. I just don’t know what to do since she told us not to move up the wedding, and her husband has told us to not mention it and to stay postive. I guess I just really needed to vent, but any suggestions, thoughts or anyone going or gone through a similar situation. This past month has been the hardest one of my life, I want to stay strong for my fiance but I feel so sad that his mom won’t be there on our specail day. Thanks to anyone who read my story, life sadly is too short.
