Here we go.......yup...we leave in 10 days and I am starting to feel it...that tickle in my throat....cold chills......slight cough. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I always seem to get sick right before a trip. I don't know if I am running myself down by trying to get everything done before we go or if I am just losing my mind. I am also paranoid that the kids will get something (the stomach flu:scared1: ) before we go........anyone else?.....or do I need professional help LOL

10 days is plenty of time to get it, and get rid of it before your trip. Go buy some Emergen-C (or whatever that stuff is called), and take it asap. If you take that right at the first sign of a sniffle, it can sometimes head off the cold completely.

Good luck, feel better, and have a wonderful trip!

Go get Cold FX immediately!! It is expensive, but so worth it.
I plan on taking it as a percautionary before we go. I will be so not happy if someone gets sick.:headache:

I'm paranoid too and my trip is still 63 days away. I am taking DD out for 3 days and I don't want her to miss any other days between now and then. I make her drink a glass of orange juice everyday and we will all get the flu shot this year.

I am going to the oral surgeon tomorrow to for a consultation to get all of my wisdom teeth pulled before my trip. My #1 question and concern, will I be totally healed by the time I go to WDW?

We leave in 23 days. In the past two weeks, the baby has had Roseola, now a very runny nose/congestion. and my oldest just got a note home from school that one of her classmates has the Croup! The baby was on a nebulizer last year with that :rolleyes1


I'm ready to put them in a bubble!

I've also instituted a new rule that no one is allow to touch the baby without doucing themselves in hand sanitizer

Wonder why they sent home a note about the croup? Croup isn't contagious. :confused3

Sure it is...well I should say the viruses that cause croup are...spreadable by sneezing, coughing..

Of course, not everyone that comes in contact with the viruses that cause croup develop croup but maybe just a head cold.. but its definitely contagious

We've been freaking here too..we leave in 3 weeks and ds is home sick from school today. He's got a fever and a headache..dr. said it's viral. I've been pumping the kids with o.j everyday and making sure they get enough sleep and their vitamins. The last 2 trips my son has been sick on the way home. I am praying it doesn't happen this time.
