    Glad you listened to your gut! I hope she gets feeling better soon! It's so scary having sick kids.

    Mother's intuition is generally right. :)

    Hoping she is feeling better soon. You need to take care of yourself too. Try to get some rest.

    So sorry to have read about your daughter but I'm glad to know Disney has been of help. Hope your daughter feels better quickly and that she is able to enjoy some time at disney. You will enjoy the cruise next time, so glad you decided to stay at disney and go to the hospital! :)

    Now I'm

    Stranded at the hospital. No taxis available for 2 hours. I just want to get back to the hotel. I'm so exhausted, hungry and have no ride. I want to sit and cry.

    :( That sucks. See if the gift shop has a deck of cards. Normally in hospitals there are nice places to relax, you two can play cards and relax while you wait for your ride.

    Apparently there is an AKL van on its way! OMG this is a nightmare. No one really speaks English here and barely understands us. I feel like I'm in a foreign country not the USA.

    There is a shuttle the resorts use that will pick you up. Call the front desk at the resort.

    So sad for you guys. How old is your daughter?

    It's such a bummer how these things happen sometimes. It makes you wonder, why now???

    Van should be here any minute I think. I haven't eaten all day. I'm starving and need bed. This is not a good day. Can only get better right? It's prez weekend and I'm praying we can even get a room. Hospital bill $6000. I had to pay $1400 up front. Insurance reimburses. Let this be a lesson. Always keep a $5000 EMPTY card or have that cash available when traveling. My refund won't be instant, but I have enough savings to cover a week at akl with dink g and tix if she gets better, plus the med bill.
