A Moving Story

I saw Mrs. K in the hospital; she was admitted for unstable angina- coronary angiography showed multivessel disease and so she was scheduled for CABG next week. The catch though is her oldest child was scheduled to get married Saturday.
And she was deemed too unstable to be released from the hospital.
And so, her daughter did something you only read about or watch on TV. She changed the venue from the church to the hospital  chapel. A smallish, humbly room; not the huge cathedral she probably had envisioned.
As I rounded on her this morning, Mrs. K told me of how it was a small affair, only about 30 people, but it was nonetheless the most beautiful affair. They came in their gowns and tuxes. They exchanged their vows and everyone cried (thankfully, this did not cause any angina for the patient!). It was a most touching event.
I didn't want to be presumptious and invited myself to the chapel downstairs, but I couldn't help but feel moved by the story. If mom can't come to the wedding, we'll bring the wedding to mom.
 
The reception will have to wait, she said; they will wait till she recovers from her bypass so that she can dance the night away.
