Having a bit of a crap time. My Dad has been really unwell, and has just started taking daily chemotherapy tablets. He is taking these daily for six months. He's doing okay at the moment; no side effects yet, but he has only been taking them for a couple of weeks. He feels better in himself too, and the symptoms from his illness seem to be fading (he has an autoimmune disorder - found out two weeks ago as it caused a stroke which led to the diagnosis).
We're supposed to be getting married in August, and are having the wedding reception at my parents house. It's a lot of stress, and we were thinking of postponing the wedding, but it's really important to my Dad that it carry on as planned. The thing is, I am really worried about doing it. We can't visit him if we are unwell, and I just think having so many people around him (175ish guests) is too risky, and also, we've still got a couple months to go and I don't want him to be feeling too unwell by then to enjoy the day. I feel too much stress to carry on with it, but I don't want to postpone it if he doesn't want me to. The other thing is that I have just had a miscarriage, which may be related to all the stress. I'm not feeling very weddingy at the moment. Actually, I'm feeling really crap, and I don't want to be worrying about lace and bunting on top of everything else.
I was just wondering whether anyone else has known people undergoing chemo, and whether they were able to attend large events? I know that everyone's experience of it is different, but any insight would be really helpful.
