Just 2 days to go until my wedding! So excited :D And the best news (for me) is that my chest is sooo much better! This combo of steroids and Septrin (oral antibiotic) has made such a difference. I am hungry, coughing a lot less and can actually stay awake for more than 4 hours. The docs really got it right this time, and I'm so thankful.
All the wedding prep is done so it's been a week of pampering ourselves, which is lovely :) The weather looks to be typically English haha, but oh well. We are getting married in my family church that we've been going to for like 20 years, and it's the last wedding before it's knocked down (they have built a new church next to it). So our local paper wants to do an article on it! We've had our little interview, just need to send them photos from the day. Can't believe it- that will be another thing crossed off my bucket list :)
The only thing I'm gutted about our big day is that our little Barney Bear won't be able to make it :( He's just too hyper- only being 5 months old- so it would be more hassle than it's worth lol. But he's going to have an amazing day with some friends from the church, running around and playing all day!
What has taken me back the most is the kindness of people during this time in my life. Friends are making such an effort for our wedding- booking in hair appointments, spray tans, buying new outfits, buying confetti and little things. I know it might sound weird, but I just couldn't really believe that people are making such an effort for my wedding. Like most of my friends are students or working so hard to keep themselves afloat during these hard times, and the fact that they'd spend their earnings on things for my wedding, instead of things they might actually really need just touches me so much! Not to mention a patient from my mum's work (who I have never met) has made a cake for us! The kindness of people really does make me appreciate all my friends, family and even random patients!
So if you're coming to my wedding and this applies to you, thank you so much. I'm sure I will never forget my wedding day and I promise I will never forget the kindness and generosity of you all. See you Saturday, I love you!
