    My "female surgery" incisions won't heal for 6 weeks total and long periods in the water slow healing and re- open wounds and tons of bacteria in mexico.

    After I calmed down a little I feel OK about going and having a great time with the kids and family- there will still be a ton to do. We will be at teh wedding hotel for 1 week...

    Thanks!!

    FYI: I still havent done welcome letter, OOT bag iron on's, vows, sand ceremony stuff, pretty much everything.. too many drugs cloud my head
    My 8 year old is my bridesmaid so - no help :)
    Andrea - I think your postpone the honeymoon is a great idea! Right now you can go down there and really enjoy the time with friends, family and your new husband. Trust me - there will be SO much going on that you will barely notice not being able to swim! Plus there's tons of fun stuff that you can do instead.

    And this will give you a great excuse and the extra money to take a second trip in Feb. as your honeymoon!

    One last thing - you don't HAVE to do all the extras - like iron ons for the OOT bags, or OOT bags at all! Simplify your plans if need be - it will still be an amazing, beautiful and fun wedding. I know a lot of us ladies have done Welcome Letters as well so we could send them to you if you want to just steal the letter and update the info! The most important thing is that you take the best care of yourself - and have a wonderful time in Mexico!

      Definitely go now and then take your diving trip when all is well. Like Christine and Kash said, I am also willing to help in any way I can. And don't stress over the small stuff if it is too much to handle right now. Most people don't even know what OOT bags are so if they don't get one they won't miss it. Let us know what we can do from afar :o)

        I think that's a great plan. Besides, 2 vacations are better than one! Especially when it's so cold in Feb & you get to head back to Mexico!!!

          I think I will skip the welcome bag iron on's.. that will help.. I am mailing out DIY luggage tags now with an info letter.. any suggestions what I should say.. thought I would give tips on the airport (like stay away from time share guys giving out "free" tours) what to pack- I can't think of anything else- it's the pain meds.. I have all this time off work but hurt too much to get stuff done!!!

          Had to cancel my shower and bachelorette party it would have been saturday.. Are all these warning signs :) the hurricaine, surgery... hmmm

          Thanks girls for your support and suggestions! It really helps! I feel better about going and spending time with everyone there! Water is really over rated anyway :)

            Why cancel your parties Can't you just take lots of pain pills and sit most of the time? I think you will be sad later on that you did not have them. Can you re-schedule them?

            They are not warning signs, it will all work out, you will see.

            As for a letter, I know other's have precedents you can use, so I will let them post them. Mine was not that great, kinda crappy really. I write too many legal letters that is sounded to professional and not fun. But, I was stressed and sent it anyway. lol

              When i had surgery I went swimming before I was supposed to. Yup, my incisions got infected. It stunk. But Mexico is beautiful and I'm sure you will find SO many other things to do! Just make sure that you don't do anything too stressful on your incisions!

                  I canceled the honeymoon but will do the first week. I feel better now.. the first week was bad and I couldn't do the parties- I was miserable! But I feel more positive now. It will still be fun.... I am having a welcome home reception on Oct 7th for everyone- so that will be fun- make up for the bachelorette party.. I am planing a girls and guys night out in mexico.
                  I sent my letter and luggage tags out- thanks for the help!

                  Thanks for all your love and concern!!!

                  Andrea
