I'm so sorry to hear about your health issues. I can imagine it's pretty difficult to accept the fact you'll be dependent on a wheelchair now. Good to hear you're still determined to visit Switzerland though, even if you and Mike have to adapt to these new circumstances! Practicing with your wheelchair at home would be a good idea I think.
Your trip to Switzerland will require a more detailed planning now, and as suggested you'd best contact the railway and mountain transportation companies you'll be using in advance to find out how they can help you. In the end, I don't think there are that many journeys you'd have to refrain from, as in the majority of cases a wheelchair can be handled. And I'd also expect employees and other travelers to help you and Mike out if your wheelchair has to be carried in or out of a train with non-level floors.
Good luck with your preparations, and I hope you'll still be able to enjoy Switzerland next summer!
