I agree a support thread for people dealing with illness or any sudden traumatic issues is a great idea.
I hope you are doing better Alicia, you are in my prayers as well. Health, Happiness, and recovery to everyone! ;-)

I think that it is amazing that you two are powering through this, being positive, and planning your wedding! When you two are standing up there getting married next year, the journey you've been on will make it all just that much more amazing on your special day!
You bring up a great point about their being a thread for people dealing with illness in the midst of planning their wedding. I have actually been ill for the past year, and off work. I just finally got back to work a month ago, and I was immediately full steam ahead to plan my wedding, since I was heading back to work and feeling better! We had originally wanted to get married this year, but an entire year of being ill really did set us back. I went through many tests, specialists, more specialists, and a whole lot of boredeom and stress being off work and ill. It drove me nuts to finally be engaged, and not be able to plan my wedding
I thought I was in the clear to start planning the wedding since I was finally back to work and had the next year to continue to get healthier....only to be set back the past week and a half with my illness. I was so inspired by your post, because just today I was thinking to myself, that perhaps I should postpone the wedding yet again. I really do want to power through, because I don't want to wait one more day to marry my man, and spend a week in the sun with my dearest friends and family.
Here is to health and happiness for all brides, and grooms out there! Thanks for sharing your story - and again, I wish you and your FI all the best!
