Deadly swine flu virus in Mexico

Recommended Posts

You're welcome to it Norisa23! Best of luck to you as well. I will post after I talk to the CDC again. I just called their 800 number and was on the phone with a very helpful woman for about 15 minutes...calmed my fears tremendously!

Reuters AlertNet - WHO not recommending swine flu travel restrictions
I am getting married in June and must say am a little worried, but this was a HUGE help. I know that most of this is blown into something bigger than it really is.

I also just talked to my TA and they are sending somone down to the RM area until this blows over just to see what is really going on. As of now the state that Tulum is located in has no known cases, there are more cases in the state that I live in (Texas) than there. So this also helped.

All we can do is pray and hope that this will be contained soon.

Read this article about the students in New York who have the swine flu. It suggests there is no connection between the students who went to Cancun for Spring Break and the students who have SF. They interview one of the girls, she has the flu but has not been tested for Swine Flu. It seems the students with Swine Flu, and the students who went to Cancun, are not the same students.

Points to note from the cases in Canada:

 

-Neither man's illness (the 2 in Alberta) was severe enough that he had to be hospitalized.

- 3 of the 4 cases in Nova Scotia now have a clean bill of health. The fourth is "recovering nicely and we expect he will be released today."

-"In actual fact, the swine flu may have a death rate that's similar to seasonal influenza."

 

Just wanted to share the points showing that this is not really any worse than a normal flu.

Well, we are getting married in Nuevo Vallarta on May 16th. We leave on May 11th. Right now, we are very fortunate, as all of our guests are supportive and plan to go if at all possible. We are collecting info, keeping our guests informed, and discussing a possible Plan B. We figure we'll be happy getting married anywhere at any date - we'll just roll with the punches. This is a frustration, but seems small in the overall scope of things, as some people have lost loved ones to this illness. Hopefully with people on alert and by taking proper precautions, it'll work out in time for our ceremony. If not, we'll just deal with it and see what we can do to shift everyone's travel fees to a new location or a new date if necessary.

oh girls I'm soooo sorry to hear how many of you have guests cancelling, especially like you Des when we have 3 months!!! We are coming up w/ a plan B in case travel is restricted, which is definitely a possibility. I am not concerned about the flu, there aren't any cases of it in RM and there are more CONFIRMED cases in the US than Mexico. I am really just afraid that they will restrict travel since they have alread advised against non essential travel. Which I think may really be scaring off our guests that they've advised that! sad.gif I know this day is just about Joe and I, but we've been legally married for almost a year and at this point its important to us that they are there. We are having a big AHR at home, but we really wanted a laid back bbq, plus its much cheaper that way since we are expecting around 250 to the AHR. So I'm glad I still have months to see how this plays out and I really hope for the best!

Thanks to everyone for all your posts. We are getting married in RM in June and reading the posts and hearing people share their opinions has made me feel better.

 

My thoughts are with all of you. I am praying this will be in the past before we know it.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
