Has the Swine Flu caused you to detour your event?
Dear Kustom Koozies Friend:
We are aware that the current threat of Swine Flu has caused many planned destination events to be relocated or rescheduled. We, at Kustom Koozies, donâ€™t want you to be without correct Koozies! Therefore, if you ordered Koozie from us, we will reprint a new set, with the new place/date for what it costs us to print, ship, etc. If you have a friend who had them printed at another company (because we know you wouldnâ€™t go anywhere else), have them email us a picture of what they have, and weâ€™ll print new ones at 20% off our already low prices.
Let us help make a bad situation a little better!
Please email Linda at
Thanks so much for sharing your note to your guests. My wedding is Nov but already, his mum has shared some concerns with us b'cos in 1918, a flu killed many worldwide. So, my fiance was thinking of writing an email to our guests. THANKS!
OK - and now for my big UPDATE
I got the OK from my doc yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He wrote me a script for Tamiflu (holy crap, $122 without insurance! Eeek!), and also a brief note stating that I have Lyme with fevers <100 degrees. (He didn't want to get too detailed, just in case I did get sick he did not want them to ignore me because of his note, if that makes any sense...
Also, at the end of the visit I told him "we're going to Mexico, Rain or Swine!" with a big grin - he backed away in his chair and looked a cross between humored and CONFUSED, he started to say something else and then said "OH!!! I thought it was the Lyme messing up your words (Lyme affects your memory, you often mix up words, etc.), and I was about to correct you!" Then he realized the joke.... HAHAHAH!
I have a good treatment plan set up to start heavy duty treatment after the Honeymoon, and meanwhile some good meds to help with the pain, etc. (God it feels so nice to not be in agonizing pain for once!!!). All in all, I felt very well taken care of.
A HUUUUGE weight has been LIFTED off of me now!!!! I mean, how can my guests argue now that *MY* doctor has given *ME* (the sick person! lol) the go ahead!!!! Bwahahaha jk
OPERATION P.V. RAIN OR SWINE IS A GO!
ALso, just to keep y'all updated, this is what I posted on our wedding site today:
| **UPDATE May 5th** |
Good news - According to CNN.com, yesterday Mexico lowered its National Health alert from a Red ("high") to an Orange ("Elevated"). The situation is Mexico certainly appears to be stabilizing. We continue to send our prayers and good thoughts to the Mexican citizens (including several close friends of ours) as they continue work through this tumultuous time.
Also, Jaime "passed" her doctor's visit yesterday with the "OK" to go to Mexico ~ the doctor gave her an Rx for Tamiflu (just in case or for preventative measures). She will begin antibiotic treatment after we return from our Honeymoon on June 5th!
Operation "P.V. - Rain or Swine" is definitely a GO!!!
So, pack your bags! We'll see you SOON in Mexico!
And a big "GRACIAS!" to all who have helped in channeling positive energy as well as those who have sent encouraging and inspiring emails, phone calls, etc. It has been wonderful to experience your outpourings of support! We are once again reminded of what wonderful friends and family we have, and truly look forward to spending an incredible weekend with you all in the lush, tropical paradise of Puerto Vallarta!
Martin and Jaime
