I gave DD some of the Oscillococcinum as soon as I found it and started myself on it, since she had a dance competition that weekend. DD had a fever one day, felt tired, but was able to dance the weekend. DS was out of it for a week and DH was sick for about 5 days. I never got it!

The medicine comes in a little tube and is similar to small mini candy icecream toppings. They have a slightly sweet taste and dissolve quickly. I think it is safe for kids, but am not 100% sure. (just checked and they make it for kids) http://www.oscillo.com/
If there is any concern, take some of this with you. I know I will have it with us....just in case.

Hope everyone heals quickly.

As for me, I am 8 days out and still feeling like the world is caving in on me. Too many appointments got scheduled this week, but it's too late now. Washer and dryer will be fixed tomorrow, I hope. So at least I can pack some clean clothes.
we did the same, the past month has been jammed with appts. but it made the time pass faster! oh yeah and our brand new dryer(6 weeks old) crapped out last week too! oy. once the repair man got here after a week, they realized that it had blown a fuse( i should say exploded a fuse) on our second fuse/panel. i can honestly say that was all hubbys dept- i didnt even know we had a second box! lol

3 more days!!

DS16 slept thru the night good with little coughing and went to school today. His MRI is tomorrow and a haircut after that. Then I work until 5:00 on Thursday and then we drive 1 hour to the hotel at the airport to spend the night and then off we go at 6:10 AM Friday morning.

I'm really feeling the crunch all of the sudden.

Off to work. Happy packing everyone!

I'll toast to that and will add that I hope the crowds are bearable for all of us.

I'm driving my coworkers crazy with the lysol and germx, heck I just insulted the fedex guy cause I didn't want to sign using his stylus-do you know how many people touch that thing every day -nope I'm trying to stay healthy.

And many thanks to the poster who posted about oscillococcinum-I printed my coupon and will be picking that up today as well.

Normally I don't act like this, but I don't want to us to be sick the whole time we are there. Here's wishing healthy trips to everyone

Single Digit Dance time!

9 days left! Whoo hoo!

There are confirmed cases of swine flu here on campus, normally I could care less and make fun of people who are freaking out too much. But now that I actually don't want to be sick for something I'm chewing on vitamin C all day lol

The flu is pretty widespread around here too. I can't help but be paranoid about us catching it!! Two of my friends have kids sick with the flu right now. I really, really hope my girls don't get sick before our trip. Or worse, while we are there!! I really just want to stay inside for the next 2-1/2 weeks and avoid everyone!!!

Exactly!!! My coworker is sick (I am hoping it is just fall allergies) and I won't go near him or touch his computer or anything!
I have Airborne in my desk and have been drinking it daily!! Paranoid much!!

Single digits for us, too!

We leave on the 5th! You are all convincing me to start being more obsessive about the germs to keep the sicknesses away. We are all feeling well, so far, KNOCK ON WOOD!

Here is my last minute pre-trip report.

We leave for our first WDW vacation this Friday before sunrise! DD (almost 5) and I are really excited but I'm also freaking out. I have a ton of packing to do, double checking the list to be sure I'm not forgetting the itinerary or important documents and stuff, need to check in online still, cancel a couple ADRs I've decided against, decide whether we have enough luggage space for all our clothes and junk with room for souvenirs on the return trip, and so on.

Plus, DD came down with a cold and I'm really hoping it goes away before Friday rather than getting worse for either of us. Please, oh please, let everything go well on our trip!

Thanks Kim, I think you are the one who sent me the pixie dust last week. DH has the MRI tomorrow but at least the back pain hasn't gotten worse. Three weeks left and I am watching this surprise trip run down the tubes! BUT, I never give up Thanks again and good health to all our families!

Hi. I run a fridge swap at the All Stars that just had a cancellation for October 11-15 if you are interested in using a free fridge and coffee maker for those dates. The link to the thread/info is in my signature below.

Are you at the Movies or the Music? Have a great trip! You arrive as we are leaving .
