Just play it by ear. My grandma made it through 3 or 4 brain cancer surgeries over the last several years and only died today after them saying Thursday that they’d start radiation on Friday and finding out Friday that it was too far advanced. If she’s alive and having a good day I’m sure she’ll try to make it. She might even push it if she’s not having a good day too.

I am so sorry Bella.

If she can’t come, would it be possible to hook up a web cam, so she can see and hear the ceremony. You could have the officiant/pastor awknowledge her prior to the ceremony.

I’m sorry to hear that.  It is hard to think of having fun with someone so special not present, maybe you can try and do something so she feels apart of it.  Maybe you can find away to have your ceremony aired view the internet so she can watch.

Don’t feel guilty, I saw my grandma on Thursday and everyone kept saying that she had stayed up all day just waiting for Fiance and I to show up. And she was so excited that we had picked our date and that she was one of the first ones to hear about it even though she knew she wouldn’t be able to make it.

I’m so sorry you are going through this!  Hopefully since you wedding is so close (less than a month, woo hoo!) she’ll be able to attend.  If not, I think the webcam idea is wonderful!

Oh Bella, I am so sorry you are having to deal with this during such a special time in your life! I understand you feeling like it is guilty to plan a celebration during a time like this, but on the other hand I know if it was my family it would be a way to enjoy the moments you have together and take the stress away from the situation. When my grandma was sick with cancer, all she wanted was for people to enjoy her last days- and it really hurt her more to see us all struggling. I love the idea of a web cam as well! Make sure to communicate about everyone’s wants and needs, but with only a month away it seems like there isn’t anything you can do besides find a way to honor her in the celebration and try to include her in it as well.

 

Let us know how things go, keep your head up, and rely on the support and love of those around you!
