I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma.
You will need to call the court clerk's office---in the correct county--- and ask whether your case is still on calendar for tomorrow. If it is you will have to appear, because if you do not, and neither does the other party, and the court has not continued the case, the judge will dismiss the lawsuit.
There is not way to really contest the request for a continuance, as the court will almost certainly grant it as a courtesy to the attorney. About all you can do is realize that the hearing will likely be postponed---giving you time to better prepare your case if you need it.
I wish you the best in 2011.
