My wedding is 10 days away, I am excited, nervous, and all sorts of emotions, I think the butterflies in my tummy are about to bust outta there! Anyways, one of my dear friends and bridesmaids has lupus, and is getting another flare up. She is super sick, I have a feeling she wont make it to the wedding if she doesn’t get better. I’m so sad, because she is a close friend who I care about so much… I just needed to let it out… Thank bees.

Aw, that sucks for both of you. The best thing you can do for your friend is to just be supportive of what she needs right now. I don’t know what her triggers are for flare ups, but for me, stress is a killer. If I get too stressed, I’m bound to get a flare. So if stress is a trigger for her (and it probably is), please try to do a little something to ease her mind right now. She is probably feeling just as bad about the situation as you, if not more. If you can do a little something to let her know that you just want her to be happy and healthy, and help her feel less stressed about feeling well in time for your wedding, it may help. At the very least, it will let your friend know that you love and support her and want her to be well above all else.
Good luck, and I hope everyone is happy, healthy, and ready to go on your wedding day!

I just sent her an edible arrangement to brighten her day!
Stress is a big one for her, and she is a workaholic… Hopefully this time she takes it easy and takes care of herself and work later, she didn’t do that with her last flare up and it was real bad. I am a very low maintenence bride, so I really ask nothing of my bridesmaids.

Im deling with something similar so I know how you feel. FI’s best friend, one of our groomsmen, was electrecuted at work and undergoing massive treatments and may not make our wedding either. Im more upset at the fact he is going thru this and wont be there to share our day than the factthat we dont have a groomsmen. I told him I dont care if he’s in sneakers and sweats, if he feels up to being there I want him there…but not to worry about us, just to focus on his recoovery. He has no family here and lives on the road so its been tough for him. Hope she feels better!
