Today and Tomorrow - will be hard

DD Lauren was supposed to get married tomorrow. Her now-ex-fiance called it off a few weeks ago. Then, we went to WDW!! Came home, and she and I both hit the ground running, going back to work and doing what damage control we could (caterers, florists, photographers, GUESTS - all needing notified).
I had taken the week off for prep, and decided to not rescind my vacation. Good thing, as my mother and my FiL both had surgery on Wed (mom had cataracts, FiL had a knee replacement).
DD Lauren had been planning to quit (to move to another state with her now-ex), so she just never turned in her notice and stayed on the schedule.
Yesterday, I did the final items on my "What to do before your daughter's wedding that isn't happening." list. I took back my dress and some other items and cancelled our hair, and spa appointments for today (forgot about them until yesterday). It was heartbreaking.
DD has to work all weekend (EMT - nights), so she'll be busy, but she's hurting. She's been off for the last few days, and I can tell it's been rough.
On a plus side, he's been contacting her, telling her he made a mistake and telling her he forgives her (don't know what on earth he thinks needs to be forgiven - and she tells me she doesn't know either) and wants to become engaged again and do the wedding thing soon. She's told him "no, we're done." I'm proud of her for standing up to him and not going back. There are other things at play, but let's just say - her career will be much better without him being nearby.

I'm glad that everything is getting worked out, but it has got to be bittersweet. Kudos to your DD for standing up to him and moving on with her life. It's got to be very tough right now, but will be much better as time marches on and your lives are somewhat back to normal. for all on you, including your mother and FiL on healing of bodies and mind.

I'm glad she stood up to him. That's a really hard thing to do. It'll take time but things will get better.

I'm glad for her, as much as it's hurting right now, the fact that he 'forgives her' for something she doesn't even know, yeah, that's just not right!

Hugs for her, and for you too, Mom...

It’s a lot to manage, but I know you’re both glad she has work.

This has to be horrible for all involved, but I have to say, better to find out now than after a marriage. As my FIL used to say "Better to be single than wish you were." Sounds to me like you can see good things about them not going through with this.

Glad your DD has a good job to keep her busy. I love it that first responders are now getting a lot the same acknowledgment we've given military service personnel. Thank her for her service to our country, please.

Bravo to Lauren for standing strong. Sounds like this guy would continue to yo-yo their relationship. Sounds like he needs to do some more growing up. Pixies for all y'all to keep moving forward.
