I havent been on in awhile- hi everyone! I have been busy getting ready for the podcast cruise- but ours is right around the corner as well!
I would like to sign up for the FE exchange as well!
We are two adults, three teenagers and two kids-
The podcast cruise will be my first experience, and there are 97 CABINS signed up over there! We are doing one gift per cabin, with a few little things for the kids.

Matt is feeling better.
He went to the ped. on Thursday and he had a bad sinus infection. She gave him some meds. On Saturday, Matt told us his head was going to explode.

We took him to the hospital. He was running a temp of 104. He had blood work , Chest xrays, and a cat scan of his sinuses.

They admitted him. He had such a bad sinus infection that it was starting to erode the facial bones. He had to have strong meds to kill whatever caused it. The doctors were worried that the infection would spread to his bone/ brain and heart.( Matt had open heart surgery so illness and fever are always a concern)

He is feeling much better and came home this morning. He will be returning to school tomorrow.

Christi,
What a scary experience. I am glad he is feeling better. I am actually a CCU nurse. So I know about heart problems and infections. We only got about 5 inches of snow, but they still had a snow day, we have been sledding already. Does nothing but make me think about summer

Hey, I was a NICU nurse for 14 years, did transport team as well (UA/UV line placement, intubation) Went back to school for my masters and now have been a certified nurse midwife for 7 years. Although because of my NICU background the Drs I work with call me a Medwife LOL.

I have you down on list already

See my website, bottom link on left, on Cruise list your name has a FE next to it.
www.astersflorist.co.uk

Anyone wants adding or taking away from the list let me or Maria(Maza) know.

Into another month, can't believe March is here already.

Matt was born with 2 vsd and an absent right pulmonary aerty.
When Matt turned 4 his cardio told us he would need a heart/lung transplant.

The doctor yelled at me for not bringing him in enough.( MAtt started off going 1 a week, and then went to every 2 weeks, 1 month and then every 3 months.) I did what the doctor told me. We found another cardio fast.

After a year of consultation with cardio board, he decided to try and develop MAtt's right lung. It worked! and year later it was large enough to receive an aerty.

He has no resriction, but there is always a chance something could happen.

Hi all from cold and snowy NJ. Not sure exactly how much snow we got as the snow is so powdery its blowing all over the place. Kids got a snow day. DD went out and did some cross country skiing around the yard this morning and now is in the hot tub. What a life

Christi......I am a firm believer that some classrooms harbor more germs than others. Went through that two years ago with my son. He was constantly getting sick.

I know those letters you are getting from the school regarding too many absences. Being home sick should not count towards those absences. My favorite was when DS got a concussion at school from an accident and missed several days because he was dizzy and I still got one of those "your child is missing too many days of school" letter.

I just ignore those letters completely.

I agree with the advice to check online and see if your flights have changed their departure times. We had that happen last year.

Regarding what to do for shore excursions......it all depends on what you like to do: shop; lay out on a beach; snorkel? Definitely check out what DCL is offering to get an idea of what you can do.

We booked a private snorkeling excursion for Cozumel and just this afternoon booked a deep sea fishing trip in Grand Cayman. Was thinking about Stingray City in Grand Cayman but decided on deep sea fishing as we've never done that before. We tried twice last cruise to do the fishing trip at Castaway Cay and both times it got cancelled.

We're not planning anything in Key West. Just relax onboard.

Yes, my DD will be pissed not being able to go to the Stack. I totally understand why DCL decided to split the age groups. She enjoyed Oceans Quest the last time we cruised on the Magic. And what is more important is the other kids in the clubs and not necessarily the location of the club.

Do you have a website link for the Deep sea fishing in GC? there will only be me and Mathew doing it, I Googled and all were for chartering a boat $800+
Will stick with doing it at Castaway Cay if I can't find anywhere else.
Thanks

Paid off our cruise last week!!!!
We got our tax refund & wanted to do something useful with it before we wasted it away on nonsense. We also changed our hotel plans for the week before our cruise. We originally had ressies at CSR, but couldn’t pass up the deal at the Universal hotels. (we already planned to spend half of our time at universal & seaworld) So for almost the same amount that we would spend at CSR w/ AAA, we upgraded to Royal Pacific!

Good for you, Donald! We have a few more payments to make through our travel agent...but we're getting close!

A question about Fish Extenders...I'd still like to do them (well consider anything we get an extra wedding gift! but we dont actually have a little extender. I am NOT craft-inclined...what's the best way to get one? We're total novices at this stuff!

(Nurse) Midwife too. ..but havent practiced properly for about 6 years, since my last Delivery Suite rotation! Now head Nurse NICU...or rather Head Midwife ( still employed as a Midwife..makes me more useful!)...Or Madwife...coz you have to be!

1/2 day fishing trips up to 4 people - $500 for reef fishing and $600 for deep sea.

It is an early trip - 8:00am to noon. We have to be the first ones off the ship that day so no sleeping in. Tendering is such a pain.

Regarding the fish extenders.....I plan on buying one on Ebay. I just don't have the sewing skills.

Thanks for link, not too bad if 4 going but with just the 2 of us I think we will stick to Castaway Cay, Its $117pp but only about 2.5 hours.

For Fish extenders we are getting DMIL to make one for us but last cruise we did some just hung a bag outside or nothing at all, had to attach gifts to fish.
