    Ring Bearer…now if only I can get him to share some of these darn wedding plans. Being in the dark about everything is NOT so fabulous. This is the only the second time in our relationship that he has managed to keep a secret from me…gosh darn it.

    Ring Bearer..he sure did…the only things I have picked out have been my ensemble for the day, his ring, and his wedding present (some hand monogrammed cufflinks).

    I think I posted the story as a response to another thread but it may be worthy of a thread of it’s own…LOL

    So….I planned our first wedding all on my little lonesome. We were supposed to get married in Charleston, SC (his city) on November of last year. He had been diagnosed with cancer in November of 2006..our first year of dating…and after 3 rounds of chemo, was declared cancer free…but he still has to have regular screenings….but I digress. So In October of last year he went in for his regular screening with his oncologist and lo and behold…the cancer was back. His oncologist and gastro. Drs both recommended surgery to have a portion of his stomach removed. Sooooo….we cancelled the wedding and all of my hard work was for naught. So surgery was scheduled for Feb of this year and the day before surgery he went in for his pre-op and ALL of the tests (blood, the sample taken from his stomach, the camera footage from his endoscopy) tested NEGATIVE for cancer!! Somehow his cancer DISAPPEARED and no surgery was needed! So…I was off the wedding kick by this point so I said nothing about starting up planning again or anything.

    Fiance kept telling me to save as much of my vacation as I could for the end of the year and I did…thinking we were taking a much-needed vacation. Something his friend said to me clue-ed me in that it was more…so around September of this year I asked him flat out if he was planning a wedding for us in December and if so…I wanted to pick my own ensemble. So at that point he gave me the date and the location…Jamaica…not the name of the actual resort b/c he knows I would have been calling/googling….LOL.

    He said that it was early on in our relationship….almost 2 months when he was diagnosed with cancer and I never even considered leaving him when nobody would have blamed me if I did. He told me that it meant a lot that I was so supportive so he wanted to do this for me…and wanted me to let him. So…I try and bite my tongue b/c I know it means a lot to him that all of the details will be a surprise. I must admit though IT’S DRIVING ME NUTS NOT KNOWING!!

    I am so thankful that he is still here with me and doing well. Our relationship is stronger than ever, our kids are doing well…and we have this FABULOUS day ahead of us!! But I still wish I knew the colors…the name of the resort…something…LOL

    Yes, we are spending the holidays together, but after the holidays he will be moving to the same city as me. So no more LDR!

    We aren’t LD anymore, but we still will be away from one another on Christmas. We are going to our separate home towns. We’ll have our own little Christmas before we go, but we will be together for New Years!

    JamaicaBride, that is a beautiful story! You two deserve a long lifetime of happiness and I’m sure that no matter what resort he chose, the colors or the decor, your wedding is going to be one of the most beautiful weddings ever!

    I feel really blessed that I get to be with my Fiance over the holidays. We just spent Thanksgiving together (traveling to each other’s families and all) and it was wonderful!!! I just hate when we have to go our separate ways after the holiday is over.
