It won't be too long before your trip. Anyhoo,
Thanks bunches! I need to finish it up before I loose my mind. 40 something days to go(lost track for a moment). I am so ready to get on that boat. I see that the storms are picking up, I just hope that we can stay in the clear. Wish I was on that cruise around Hawaii.
Thanks for joining in!

I did not think that we would ever take one. I am so excited that we are finally going to take one. Good luck on making your decision. Thanks for joining in.

Thanks for the kind words. DH and I don't have many pictures of the two of us alone. I should have an update this weekend. Have a great week!

Getting all my sickness out before the cruise (I hope)

This is just a side note about how life can throw you curve balls. Well it all started back in May when I was told that I had some precancerous cells. Well I went into panic mode, because all I could see was all our plans having to change because of this. Who likes to hear the cancer word anyway? Well two months of having a biopsy and having the precancerous cells burned away, my report came back that all was clear That was a sign of relief, then comes the swollen lymph nodes. It can be a blessing and a curse to work in the hospital. The blessing was that I was able to walk over and ask the ER doctor what he thought, Ummm maybe it is Hodgkins(cancer), my neck was broken out in this horrendous rash that itched like crazy. So next step from him, go get an ultrasound done of your neck now. Ok, over to Ultrasound; well on the way over I stop the Radiologist and he also says let"s get the ultrasound done. The Tech starts the scan, then she says let me get the Radiologist. Never a good sign! So he comes in and watches her scan my neck. He asked me if I had a regular doctor(ummm yes, why, what do you see?) Both Lymph nodes are really swollen( I know one of them really hurts) Then he says, well is not cancer for sure, but let's keep an eye on them. People in my department was throwing Lupus and Goiter(can you feel the optimism) Well after that I was giving a perscription for some Zithromycin. Took 2 doses of that and I BROKE OUT IN RASH FROM HEAD TO TOE. Come to find out the hard way I am allergic to it. Well it made my Lymph nodes return to normal size, but now I am scratching my self to death and I can't sleep. So I was changed to Augmentin and Prednisone. That did not work as well, so I ended up checking into the ER and they gave me all kinds of drugs, because I was slowly starting to swell up. I am still dealing with it hopefully I will be back to my normal self next week. I am just happy that all of this is happening well in advance of the cruise. Just had to share, thanks for reading if you made it to the end.

Oy! I feel your pain! Anything and everything just makes me go all-out into allergic reaction mode. Prayers the current meds clear things up quickly for you (if your react well to them, it shouldn't take more than a day or two for your body to feel better). So glad all of your tests and scans came back with good news for you (allergies are a heck of a lot better than cancer!). Are you allergic to any types of food? If so, just have it noted on your cruise reservation. I always do that, and before I even have to say anything to our servers, they make mention of it.

Just over a month away for you!

Thank goodness I am not allergic to any food. It just seems that certain medications and dust bothers me.

Well, my itching has stopped and I am back to my normal self. I have brought the last couple of things for my FE, so that should be done this week. Now I just have to purchase the rest of the goodies to give away. I have also brought some clothing for the cruise for my DS. We tried on some of his dress pants and they did not fit. So I brought him two pair for the cruise and I found myself this cute swimsuit coverup. We really don't need to purchase anything else outside of watersocks and holders for our KTTW cards. We also maybe taking a lil trip to Atlanta this weekend. If will go I will do a mini TR within this PTR and of course post pictures. 29 days until we leave for Orlando!

Side note: The picture of DH and myself standing on the beach, which is here in Destin, Fl is in the running for the most beautiful place. Destin was featured on Good Morning America for the contest. Just excited about it, because it is really beautiful here. Well kept secret for celebrities and sport figures too!

Just found your thread, I'm in for the adventure!

I'm so glad everything is ok and that you are feeling better. That must have been really scary!

Glad the DH resister is showing signs of softening already talking about another cruise is awesome!

Thanks for joining in! DH is really starting to become soft to the whole Disney cruise. He is really looking forward to all the food and relaxing. He makes lil comments here and there to show that he is building up excitement. Yeh for me, I just have to keep breaking him down. I plan on booking another cruise once we board the ship, since he should be in the magical frame of mind.

That's an excellent plan! I think you save 10% when you book onboard, can't beat that! Where do you want to go for the next one? it's never too early to start planning!
