Not a good weekend

The title says it all. Late last week, my sister's soon to be FIL was rushed to hospital very seriously ill. He had major surgery which he wasn't expected to survive but he did. He is however still seriously ill. This coming Saturday, my sister was due to get married and today she and her fiance had to make the sad decision to call off the ceremony. The wedding was to be in my hometown and the groom's father is in hospital several hours drive away. Everyone is understandably upset and its particularly difficult when its supposed to be a very happy family time.
