I'm going to sound like a spoiled brat - but I'm getting ready to leave for our Bermuda cruise tomorrow morning and I'm not feeling the "magic". This trip was supposed to be DH & my gift to my parents for their 80th birthdays. Sails out of NYC, so no need to have them fly - only 5 nights and easy stop in Bermuda. Mom has mobility problems and Dad has bladder cancer, so this would be the only way they could travel - with us keeping an eye on them. They were SO EXCITED. …. Two months ago, Dad had a 10 day hospital stay due to renal failure, but he pulled out of it, albeit frail. They were still looking forward to the trip. But, on Monday, he had a rough time at the doctor changing his tubing, and he is pretty weak. He got on the phone & burst into tears that they were going to have to cancel. I'm heartbroken. First of all - my dad is not the type of person to cry, so that in of itself killed me. But they are SO DISAPPOINTED that they are disappointing US. I have insurance, so I'm not concerned about the money. And let's face it, it is what it is. But the fact that they were looking forward to this special trip and now can't enjoy it makes me SO SAD. DH & I are still going, because I don't want to confuse matters in trying to get both reservations refunded, etc. Hubby could use the rest since he's been working so hard. Our 32nd anniversary was this week, so we are trying to look at this as an anniversary trip instead. Still..... I'm so sad.
