@calgarybride2015

 

Thanks for the HUG!I needed it! Wish I could have a drink!

 

I know there is no real advice to give or words of wisdom for this one but I just had to get the feelings out so I don't lose my mind.

 

Your a nurse right? do you mind if I PM you some questions?

 

I am trying to stay positive...I know that a timeline is just that..a guess...and not always correct. I know my Nan can live as long as her spite allows...she's a tough old bird...but I found that after my legal ceremony she started to decline a crazy amount....it's like that's what she was waiting for and now she can go...for her it's all about her spirit...and her spirits are pretty low right now :( I know she has to go sometime...I just want to be able to be there...and if it happens close to my wedding I can't and I just want my wedding to be a happy time too. Life can just kick you sometimes! But hey...it's all in the future...guess I'll just have to wait and see...

 

As for my FI's Brother...like I said "can't afford" it would be a reasonable acceptable excuse any other time, but if they don't want to be there that's fine too...just say so, don't lie, that's what hurts...we want people to be there because they want to..not out of obligation. But Oh well over and done now...just so disappointing.

@Meandhim First I wanted to say how much I love everything you have done so far.  That "I Spy" is brilliant, and I'm hoping you can bring a copy to the meet up so I can get a closer look at it?

 

Second, my heart broke for you when reading your last post and I am giving you a ginormous hug when I see you on Oct 2nd.  I'm so sorry about everything that's going on and to hear about your Nan.  I don't know what to say except I am sending positive thoughts and prayers your way! xo

@deecol thanks! I know there's nothing anyone can say but I do appreciate your positive thoughts!

I will definitely bring whatever I have done so far to the next meet up so you can take a closer look.

I really wanted to say that I am so sorry for all the things you're going through right now. I hope that you can still enjoy your week despite having these things thrown at you :(. I'm sending you one humongous hug, I can't even imagine what it must be like. On a more positive note, I have heard of many people who were given a few days or weeks to live, but somehow they waited until a specific moment to "let go". My great grandma was like that, she waited until her great great granddaughter was born. She was able to hold her once and about a day later she passed away. I hope this is the case with your Nan, maybe she'll be able to hang in there until you come back. 

 

I'm so sorry to hear about your brothers in law as well. We had some people who spent the whole week with long faces and cooped up in their room, no smiles, not even on the wedding day. I tried to stay away because honestly I didn't want to deal with that kind of negativity. I was there to enjoy and have fun and that's what I did. By the way, this was someone really important in the wedding. The moral of the story is, if people don't want to be there, you're better off not having them there. I know it hurts right now, but it's better this way than for them to make you feel like they went there because they were obliged rather than because they wanted to.

Hey girl..

 

First off, I'm really sorry to hear everything that's going on right now :( It makes my heart heavy for you.

Chester and I can relate to family that has let us down.. The only family that is coming from Chester's side are his cousins. His mom & dad and his sister declined for their own reasons. It really hurt Chester more than he even expected it to. I've honestly never seen him so upset before and it tore me to pieces not knowing how to fix it. Luckily, I have a very warm and loving family that cares a lot about Chester and will be there to support and love him like their own.

 

I'm also really sorry to hear about your nan.. that makes me really sad. I was really close with my grandmother so I completely understand. It's a really hard time because it's a crossroad of a really good time and a really rough time. I'm sending all of my thoughts and prayers to you and your family. I hope that things work out for you with the timing of the wedding. I can appreciate why it's so important for you to have your dad there to walk you down the aisle and share a dance with.. i'd be devastated if I couldn't have mine there.

@Meandhim I'm so sorry to hear about everything you've been going through. Big hugs coming your way from Vancouver. Your Nan sounds like such a strong woman, just like her grand daughter. I love your positivity despite the adversity but you are absolutely correct, your Nan lived a happy and full life. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Your brother in law and his partner sound awful! To be so selfish during such an important time in your lives? Well you don't need them! You are surrounded by so many loving people, they can go to their "bear" vacations and spread their negativity there
