I've received a message that heather is in the hospital in Atlanta with a nasty flu. They have missed their flight home. Please keep them in your thoughts and hopefully we will know more soon. Thanks.

Heather just messages me that they will be letting her go soon. She is feeling a little better, but tired. As for her return home, she hasn't said yet.

Hi ladies. Ugh! What a day! I woke at 3am not feeling right. By the time we were to leave for the airport it was apparent that I had the flu. Both ends, full on. DH called our insurance people and the said they'd cover the cost to change flights if I got a hospital to say I wasn't fit to fly. Off to the hospital we went. Never been to a US hospital before. Got an IV of fluids and some Zofran by IV too. That really helped and we got discharged a few hours later. Was back at the hotel by 12:30 and DD and I had a nap. She awoke from said nap throwing up too! Ugh

Baby has been fine through it all. Kicking and wiggling while I threw up. Lol!

Hubby talked to our insurance people MANY times today and by the sound of things they will pay for everything: hospital, taxis, extra hotel nights and new flights. We just need to hang tight until we feel better before booking a flight.

So ya, terrible day but we're all still alive! Win!

Me too but UGH! It still sucks! DD fell asleep at 9 pm after 6 hours of throwing up on and off. Poor thing. I hope she wakes up fresh tomorrow!

Glad you are doing ok...all things considered. I had the flu at 33 wks pregnant with DS2 and DS1 was sick with me. That is no fun at all! I can't imagine dealing with it in the midst of traveling out of the country. :eek: Yay for good insurance! Hope DH stays well and you can all get home soon. :bighug:

Things are better so far this morning. DD was awake in the night and had a bit of pedialyte that stayed down. She has had a lot more this morning and even made some urine! Phew! Hopefully we'll be able to fly tomorrow.

The best part about our insurance is that it was 'free' as it's paid for by our employer!

Yesterday I had Gatorade and saltines to eat. I finally got hungry at bed time and ate a banana. Now I'm hungry again but scared to eat. DD is begging for food. Sad

Flights are booked! Same flights, 2 days later. DD and I had to pay almost $600 to change our flights but the lady who helped with hubby's flight (he booked separately on points) didn't charge us a CENT to change his! OMG, that saved us like $500! I can't believe it! I'm so happy.

DD is going nutty in the hotel room today and we have no car...luckily I found a playground on google maps so we're going to go there.

Yes, the insurance will cover the flight change costs.

We just went out for a walk and some lunch. Hopefully we all deal with the food well.

Glad you all are feeling better today!! Having the stomach bug is the worst! And it's even worse taking care of a sick kid while you are sick yourself! Hope you guys make it home safe tomorrow and that the end to your trip is uneventful.

Wooo hooo! We made it to Seattle! Our car was here and this is where our flights were to/from. SO happy that the flight is over. DD and I have been feeling pretty good. She was so awesome on the plane, probably because I pretty much let her use the iPod the whole 5 hours 40 minutes. LOL. Not my proudest parenting moment, but I'm sure the others on the plane were thankful. Blum 3

We're staying south of the border tonight and going home tomorrow.

I went to BRU today and got my Rock n Play. SO cute!!! Too bad my coupon expired when I was sick and got in late. Sad Oh well.
