Aunt Dying of Cancer

Recommended Posts

I need some support from my fellow brides. They have just sent my aunt home from the hospital so she can pass away at home. They have set up hospice for her and she has battled cancer for several years now, always beating one form than another form would develop. Now the cancer has caught up to her and like everybody I am having a hard time dealing with the knowledge that she is going to pass very soon. I feel selfish for planning the wedding amidst all of this, but I know life has to move forward.

 

I could really use some encouragement. Thanks everyone.

Preciousmi811, I'm thinking sending you good thoughts and an e-hug your way! I'm sorry to hear your news.

I know that feeling you're having, to a much lesser degree...My grandpa had heart surgery, and then proceeded to break his hip about a month before my cousin's wedding - it was awful timing, and he was supposed to walk down the aisle, etc., and the planning just had to go on. He ended up not being able to fly to the wedding and was still in rehab, but, for that day we all focused on the bride and groom.

I feel for you, as I had to go through this with my dad. He battled cancer for 2 years, only to be sent home after they could do no more. It's difficult to know someone is nearing the end, but take comfort in the fact that they will be in a better place, where there will be no more pain. I swear that my dad held on for as long as he did b/c he didn't want to leave us, b/c the second we told him it was alright to let go, he did. It's hard I know, so hang in there; I'm sending you hugs b/c I know you will need them.

Thank you girls for your wonderful words of encouragement. Your "hugs" and words of strength are so uplifting for me. Knowing that others have been through this has given me hope that I can make it through this.

 

Thank you so much

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
