We moved up the wedding from Nov 10th 2012 to Jan 14th 2012…
We found out about a month or so ago that my mother had pancreatic cancer. We were first told we got it early and it hadn’t spread but then we got a second opinion, we wanted the best care possible for my mom, no matter what the stage was. We go to a highly regarded cancer center and find out it’s spread… and its stage 4…
talk about shock of a life time… my wedding is a year and a 1/2 away and the doc tells me that she may only have that amount of time left… (now i’m hoping that she’s wrong and my mom will have longer than that) but the future is too uncertain. The good thing is that she’s excited that its in less than 6 months its more tangible. And while she has to go in for her 2nd treatment on monday, she’s feeling good this weekend and we’re going dress shopping tomorrow and to see Josh Groban at night (with a nap for her in between)
I can’t dwell on what MIGHT happen and When…. but live for each day as it comes and deal with what ever it brings….
there is a silver lining though….I get to marry the love of my life in 5 1/2 Months!
thanks for listening bees

I’m so sorry she is ill. Cherish each moment with her. I wish I had even one more hour with my Mom.

Ah, I’m sorry about the hard news with your mom. Take each moment with her and keep it alive and warm in your heart. I’m glad you get to marry the love of your life sooner and that your mom can be a part of planning with you right now. Enjoy dress shopping, it’s the best especially when you go with your mom…such a special time and memory for you both! 🙂 (hugs!)

I am so sorry that you and your family are going through all that. I can’t even imagine. I’ll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.
I know you’re probably nervous about how much you’re going to have to do in the next few months, but I’ve seen some incredible weddings pulled together in that much time or less. Just a few weeks ago, one of the ladies here posted a recap of her lovely wedding that was planned, I think, in two days! I know that no matter what, your wedding will be awesome, and it will be made even more awesome when your mom is there to share the day with you.
Also, you now have the most awesome date twin on the face of the planet. Yeah, I’m definitely talking about myself. 😛

my heart goes out to you and your family. congradulations on you upcoming (sooner) celebration as well. My future husband’s father also has cancer and has been living with is as well for the last 5 years. he was told his dad only had 3 months when he first found out. that wasn’t exceptable for my other half and he researched online and found the Cancer Treatment Center in Seattle, WA. I hope the best for you and your family. if you have any questions you’d like to ask, please don’t hesitate. 🙂
future Mrs Newsome

@CTbride2010: Sounds to me like you and I are on the same path. My fiance and I got engaged in December, set our date for September, and found out in May that my grandmother who is my best friend and been in my every day life since day one was diagnosed with colon cancer. It was been the most difficult thing about the whole wedding. I haven’t stress once through the planning process except when it comes to her doctors appts or her treatments. We’re able to joke about it; I know that sounds bad but she’s in good spirits like making comments that she won’t have any hair for the wedding or that this was not in my wedding binder. You can’t think about the what ifs but just enjoy every minute. If you ever need someone to talk to about your situation please don’t hesitate to contact me. Support from someone who is going through the same thing can be helpful. God Bless!

@FutureMrsShute: oh I’m so sorry you are going through this as well.
Its tough because 1. you are so happy to be getting married, but 2 everything is all so much sooner then i expected so i wasted 6 months of good planing time on nothing! the whole thing really puts life in perpective though of what is important and the time I have now with my mom is just that much sweeter, I’ll enjoy what God gives me and pray for more. We had a great weekend and went dress shopping (i got one!) and then went to the concert sat and we had a great day. She’s really happy we can do this now and that she doesn’t have to worry about what if.. and when.
Thank you for all your kind words!
