My wedding is a little over 5 months away. My brother is lying in the hospital right now and we’re not sure he is going to make it. I feel that at any point, I will completely lose it as I sit here waiting for the inevitable. I don’t want to think negatively,but it’s hard not to right now. At every chance I get, I’m crying and heart sick over the whole thing. I can’t think straight, and there are still decisions to be made about the wedding, but that obviously is not my #1 priority right now. He was supposed to be giving me away and kept promising me that he will be there for it. The chances of that happening right now are not good at all. We’re just playing a waiting game right now.
I’m not looking for advice about anything, but I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening.

Big hive hugs to you!! I can’t even imagine how difficult this is. I know 5 months seems soon, but definitely don’t be worrying about wedding things. 5months is plenty of time, and you are right, definitely focus on your brother and know we’re all thinking about you!

We’ll all be thinking about you. Hopefully you’re close by and if I can give advice..make sure you’re there as much as you can be there for him right now..
Wedding planning can always resume at any time. Put all this aside for now. Give all your time and attention to your brother now.
Many hive hugs to you. Whatever it takes, get there to where he is if you can. We’re praying for him. Again, pick up the wedding stuff later. It will always be there. Brother is center and front right now and we wish him healing.

Well, he’s gotten a little better, but at this point, anything is welcome. I’m not getting too excited over it yet, until bigger changes come around. I’m definitely putting the whole wedding thing on hold for awhile and trying to make sure that he gets better and that I don’t end up getting sick in the interim. Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers! I really appreciate it.

Just wanted you to know I’m praying for you/thinking of you. My brother had to have spinal cord surgery last month, so I got a small glimpse of what you’re going through.
Hive hugs to you, rol769!

Sending you hugs, sweetie! I know what you’re going through (minus the details I guess) and it is no easy task. I can’t even imagine having to plan a wedding on top of it. I’d definitely shove it aside and focus on your brother. You have enough important stuff on your plate, and I hope he gets better soon and pulls through. We’re here for you! I wish I had more to say, some comforting words or something, but know that I"m thinking of you and your family today! And i truly hope everything pans out for the best

He’s doing somewhat better but we still have a long road ahead of us. I’m getting a little more into the whole wedding mode since there are things that I still have to do. I wanted to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers (I did a lot of praying myself!). I need to get some rest though, and I’m trying my best to stay away from negative people/forces. Sigh, life can never be easy, can it?
Thanks again for your concern. I truly appreciate it!

Unfortunately, things are not looking good at all right now. The doctors are saying that he could go any day. I’m not sure what is going to happen and all I can do is pray right now to my parents to help the situation out. Let’s hope that they hear my prayers.
