Since it is a postponement due to family illness, I’m sure your guests will understand.  You’re still getting married, so keep your shower gifts.  But you should not expect another shower closer to your later wedding date.

I’m so sorry to hear about your Future Mother-In-Law.  I wish her all the best and I hope the new drug works wonders.

I’m in a similar situation, but with my father.  We are postponing a year.  We told each guest immediately when we decided to post pone, and everyone was very supportive and understood completely.  With a little background on the reason for the postponement, I don’t think people really care about the "by the book etiquette", I know I wouldn’t as a guest!  I think the postponement "by the book rule" only applies to cases where the bride and groom are reconsidering, which obviously doesn’t apply to you.

I wish your Future Mother-In-Law and your family the best, and I hope she responds to the new treatment.
