    That is great to hear Jessica! Congrats!

    Mexico Brides- I hope this article doesn't affect us:

    WHO likely to declare flu pandemic Thursday - Yahoo! News

    They just need to shut the up about the swine flu! I have had enough. Just when I thought it died down...

      OMG look at this chart from WHO on wher cases are located, how many and # of deaths

      the US has almost 3x the number of cases in MX

      WHO | Influenza A(H1N1) - update 46

          jac, that's interesting. HALF the cases in the entire world are in the U.S. ... funny how we stopped hearing about it once the U.S. took over as the leader in confirmed cases. can't have our summer tourism, trade, economy, etc. effected by this! i like how it was fine when it was just little ol' mexico, who nobody gave a crap about. i wonder how much hush money went to the media, the WHO, and the CDC?

          i just found out tuesday night that a friend of mine's son had swine flu. it was before they really knew much about it, and the poor kid (he's about 6 i think) went through hell for about a month ... they were ready to move him to shriner's hospital ... they thought he had leukemia! once it was figured out that he had h1n1 and he was properly treated, he got well quickly and he's fine now, thank god. the family is from gloucester, nj, and none of them had been to mexico or knew anyone who had been.

              I'm a health care professional, and ended up with the swine flu in April (RIGHT at the time the whole story hit the media), thanks to a patient who had just returned ill from Mexico! It was confirmed by the lab at the hospital where I work, and several other doctors and nurses also had it. I've had the seasonal flu as well, and I have to say my symptoms with the swine flu were exactly the same but didn't last as long. Well at least I am immune to this strain now :-)

                  MarieSam, you predicted it! Got raised to level 6 today by WHO...
                  It'll be fine, like it has been pointed out, it is now everywhere so we're not in any extra danger by travelling to Mexico. Positive thoughts!!! :-)

                    Hey you girls getting ready to get married. I wish you the best and hope that the swine flu doesn't stop you from having your dream wedding. Mine was meant to be May 15th and we had to reroute the whole thing in a matter of days because it was so in the news at the time and the whole family was freaking out. We did it in the florida keys and it was constant drama throughout but ended up absolutely beautiful. I hope that all of you who had to rearrange plans or headed out had a fabulous wedding like I did and that everyone else continues to have the same!! Congrats and thanks to you all for the support during the chaos!

                      We were supposed to be married in Mexico May 21st but were rerouted to Cuba. Ended up with a dream wedding, so keep your heads up! Even with changes an amazing wedding is possible. Still amazed at what could be pulled off in a matter of days. Will post a review and pictures under the Cuba forum!
