I think you are frustrated and concerned about your best man not being there (and his health).  This sounds like one of those things that is initially stressful (understandable considering how close you are to the wedding), but will quickly dissipate, especially since his health issues must be fairly serious for a 3 day hospitalization.  He might not have been able to change the test dates vis-a-vis the hospital.  Did you and FH have a back-up plan? 

I would be careful to keep this in perspective: natural to be frustrated and perhaps a small scramble to fill his spot, but you knew this was a possibility and his health is paramount.  Good luck!

Did his twitter update say “I have to go in for tests on the 28th” or did it say “I decided not to be in GlassSlipper’s bridal party”?  If it’s the first, then he might be planning to tell you about his decision next time he sees you, considering he just made the decision a few hours ago.  If it’s the second, then it sounds more like he’s relying on Twitter to communicate with you and should have told you in person.

We don’t know what the reason is that he didn’t reschedule his test.  Maybe the next available appointment was several months later, or maybe there are other reasons.  I wouldn’t come to conclusions if I were you.  Just mention to him that you saw his Twitter post and wanted to know if that means he’s not going to stand up in your wedding or what.

It’ll work out. alright. Your FH is in charge of finding a replacement, so try not to worry. If you’re coordinating the clothing or need the name for the program, give him a deadline and tell him what the back up plan is if he hasn’t picked someone (you’ll list on of the groomsmen as his best man, or whatever).
