Please help me figure out what to do......my little 8 year old girl has been sick and 2 days ago she was admitted to the hospital. She was just diagnosed with Devic's disease a week ago and she has suddenly had a huge attack that has affected both of her eyes and her legs. She was perfectly healthy. a normal 8 year old girl when this wedding was booked in January. Now we are fighting for her life. We are trying to get her transferred into Mayo Clinic this week and she definitely won't be done with treatment for awhile. I have spent every moment with her in the hospital and I can't imagine leaving her to work on a cake for 3 days, let alone trying to arrange a trip to Mayo and making a cake. Everyday here in the hospital has been absolutely heartbreaking because she has been in a terrible amount of pain. The wedding is July 17th and its so close to the date that I am scared she won't be able to find someone else, ( and at only $2.00/serving). I will absolutely refund her all of her money and try to make phone calls to other bakeries tomorrow when I get a chance......is this enough? I know I will be ruining a brides day, but I really see no way around this. Two days ago when we were admitted I was still hoping that we would get out of the hospital by this weekend, and I could do this cake, but everything changed today when we got a MRI and found out that my daughter has extensive lesions on her brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. This is when we decided we needed to get to Mayo Clinic because she has taken a turn for the worse.
