    Thanks for the update.

    Thank goodness your daughter is being cared for and you have a place to stay. I thought she was admitted to hospital, but now I am not so sure?

    Take care, Tiger

    Goodness!!! Hope you are able to get some rest soon yourself. I am guessing they are fully aware of the situation so they can sanitize the rooms after you are moved. Be careful what you touch yourself. The report on the most resent virus was that it remains active for much longer than the regular flu on whatever is touhed. I really hope your DD starts feeling better very soon!

    So glad Disney is working their magic for you. So sorry your poor little one is still so sick. You know, once you get settled into POR, I know there is a grocery delivery service in Orlando. Maybe you could order stuff like pedialyte or gatorade, and foods she can keep down like jello, popsicles, broth, plus food for yourself. If there is a silver lining to all this, it's at least you were at Disney. I doubt any other theme park/resort would take such good care of you! Hugs from your new friend Jill! Here is the link to grocery delivery: http://www.gardengrocer.com/

    Thank you. I will order that stuff. I feel so lost. I'm used to planning, etc and just being tossed into this has been stressful. We just want to be at home but she is not strong enough to travel. I think we have to go back to hospital for more iv fluids and antibiotics. I'm in contact with doctors now. Again I am so glad we are insured.

    Wow. :sick: Being sick far away from home isn't anything anybuddy wants to deal with. :grouphug: Sounds like you're hangin in there as best you can. Hope the fever breaks soon, and that you'll be able to get some sleep when your DD does.

    Oh FYI the room we were in before now is shut down on deep clean and quarantine for a while. They do take precautions.

    So sorry you and your daughter are having to go through this. We've had a few short term stomach bugs while at Disney but nothing close to what you are going through. Hope she recovers quickly and that you stay healthy!:hug:

    Should've referred to it as "super bug"...my mistake. I had it TWICE last month. My infant grandson was briefly admitted, due to the virus and an infection. I also had other health issues, that were aggravated by the virus. It's why, I'm sensitive to contagious folks running around. Fortunately, we get flu shots, so that has not been an issue.

    YW. Good idea to get her back to the hospital. I sure hope she is better and stronger before you fly home. If she wasn't so contagious, I would look into seeing if Disney could arrange a special meet with 1 or 2 of her favorite characters. Maybe by the end of the week, they could do this for you. Keep us posted-we care.

    No worries. I was concerned OP's daughter had both flu and stomach virus, and I thought that would be too much for a little child.

    Sounds like her daughter is not in hospital, which surprises me as she is clearly still quite ill and dehydration is very serious at that point. Been there, done that...

    Best of health to both OP and her child.

    She is taking her back. Maybe they will admit her this time, considering her circumstances.

    Yes, I just saw that. Based on her symptoms, it sounds like she needs to be admitted.

    Not sure what hospital she is at (I know Disney has their own preferences), but our care at Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital was superb. They kept our child for 2 days and it was for the best.

    Best of luck to OP, Tiger

    antibiotics? So they are suspecting a bacteria and not a virus? Salmonella, E. coli? PLEASE do go back if that is the case! I have seen quite a few devastating E. coli cases, and not to scare you, but some with not good results. Please go, make sure she isn't septic!

    Since you have had a little rest/nourishment, have you had any success with contacting the trip insurance/credit cards? Another thought, but you probably already know the answer, but does your insurance from CA have ANYTHING to help you out when travelling abroad so you do not have to keep paying upfront for all these costs? Just wondering, even if you can't do the calling, is someone back home able to help you out with all that?

    Good catch, I missed that. Neither flu nor a tummy virus would need antibiotics...maybe something else like strep, bronchitis, etc...?

    Oh, yes. Maybe it has spread to kidneys? That happened to my grandma many times.

    Sending love and prayers. I'm really sorry this has happened to you and your DD.

    I made a mistake by posting to take her to the ship. I'm very sorry for that.

    Perhaps when you both get home, you will allow some 'gifts' sent to your little one. : )

    Please keep us posted.

    Debbie.
