- Wedding: September 2010
I called my Aunt, who is my mother for all intents and purposes, as I have been trying to get in touch with her for a few days. My Aunt lives about 3 hours away, she moved in with her son and his wife as her son has a tonne of medical problems and probably won’t be around 10 years from now (which is so so crappy).
Apparently my cousin and his wife are splitting. My Aunt doesn’t make a tonne of money, she works for just above minimum wage at a retail store (thank you Mike Harris for screwing up the school system). My Aunt also has a lot of health problems herself.
Point is, my Aunt can’t support herself and my cousin. I’m not sure if my cousin is on disability (he has WPW Syndrome as well as an enzyme condition that means he can basically only digest baked white fish and rice … if he veers away from that, he ends up in the hospital with a bleeding ulcer).
I’m freaking out, because the situation sucks. And … as bad as it sounds, I am so worried that my cousin’ situation will affect her being at my wedding in 2.5 weeks. I am on the verge of tears thinking that my “mother” won’t be there.
