    @soonmrswhite:  Oh no, sweetie!! So sorry to hear about your SO’s mom! 🙁  My mom is a breast cancer survivor so, totally been through all of that. It’s terrifying, and I can understand that planning is being put on hold.  My instincts are that you should go ahead with planning, but have you spoken to SO’s mother about it?  Every situation can be a little different. Maybe if you are unsure, she might be able to help you decide, one way or another. Big hugs to you and your family and lots of healing thoughts sent your way!

    @soonmrswhite:  ah! I get it now. Then yeah, I think you are right to put it on hold and go the traditional route!  Or….could you get just mom in on it?

    I think mentioning it to her after her surgery would be a great idea!  Keep going with your planning and if things get worse, you can hold off, but if not, you’ll regret not keeping the date!!
