Deadly swine flu virus in Mexico

I must give kudos to Delta. The agent waived our change fees even though our travel is on the 18th and gave us vouchers for the difference in fares.
Ok, I have cancelled and rebooked:
hair and makeup
Need to make dinner reservations
Just think of the great TTD pics I'll be able to get walking down Duval St. in Key West!!!
trying to stay positive!

The are no confirmed or even suspected cases in Cozumel but the toddler that died was here in Houston. We are just going to be careful and wash our hands. Other than that, I plan to have a wonderful time.
Do you guys think I'm crazy?

I am down here now and as I lay on my beach chair in the breeze with a cool cervesa in hand, it seems like an oasis from the US fear machine! Im glad Im here and not there. We are fine!!!
things are still fine. Have been here since last Friday, and unfortunately we have to make our way back to the States in a few days. Had lunch at Bally Hoo and by the time we left every table was full..busy as normal on Medina and at least in my opinion the hard work on Hidalgo is coming along nicely. We have seen very few masks. We are swimming, eating, shopping and relaxing...just paying attention and washing our hands

Ladies, the swine flu seems to have been completely blown out of proportion in my opinion - and this is coming from someone who lives in Mexico! I have shared a few bride's stories from this thread with foreign and local friends and we are all saddened by what many of you are going through. We are shaking our heads at how this has been handled by the media and the reactions this has created. We feel terribly sorry for the stress you are experiencing and we are holding many of you in our thoughts.
I spoke with a friend, who happens to be lawyer in Mexico, and her comment was this, "This "health scare" has more to with a bad economy in the States, Mexico and elsewhere than it has to do with a something called swine flu." I tend to agree. Who is thinking about the bad economy right now? Suddenly, our collective focus is elsewhere - toward a health scare... and then perhaps back to the economy (when the swine flu story dies down)... and then to something else.
I am sending everyone on this thread positive energy, peace of mind and hope.

But I just wanted you to know the info I received in case it helps just a little.
She said to fight it on your credit card (many time all you need to do is call and tell them the situation) and also some insurances like auto and home may also cover in events like these. The rep said most people aren't aware.
So when you are up to it, I just wanted you to know this info. This is so upsetting and I wish there was something to be done and I hope this all gets resolved for the best! Best of luck to you and your fam!
