2Nd Degree Burns And Less Than 3 Months Away Til My Wedding

Recommended Posts

Wow, so I was super frustrated this week because I was totally out of commission with bronchitis.  I missed the entire week from work.  I'm still not really even better and in fact now i'm worse off.  Yesterday, I was a genius and I decided to boil hot water and vicks to be able to breathe it in and relieve my congestion a little.  I couldn't breathe and nothing was working.  Well, probably because I was so weak, the pot of boiling water with vicks slipped out of my hands and landed on my tummy and legs.  The FI rushed me from work to take me to the hospital.  I have some nasty 2nd degree burns and so much pain and I'm so bummed out.  I was already feeling so behind in my planning.  ugh.  Anyway, i just wanted to vent.

 

Just a question to any brides that have already been married in the Mayan Riviera.  Do you need a costco membership to shop at the costco in that area?  Would the canadian membership be valid?  Does anyone know if they have fresh flowers there?  And has anyone sorted out where you can buy sparklers in that area?  Walmart?  Chedraui?  

 

Thanks!  Totally frustrated.

@@veryvalentine omg are you ok? I'm so sorry to hear about your bronchitis and most of all, your second degree burn. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a speedy recovery for you. You still have three months for the pain to subside and lungs to clear up. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers

That sounds horrible! I would say to slather in coconut oil three times a day to get it all healed up before leaving to Mexico!

As for Costco, your Canadian membership is valid anywhere in the world! I think you might be able to go online and people order flowers as well. I'm not positive though as we did minimal flowers that were included in our wedding package(still looked absolutely beautiful) and we didn't use any sparklers. Good luck! And speedy healing!

Oh my goodness - sorry to hear about what happened! Make sure to take care of yourself! Burns are nothing to fool around with. It all needs to be kept very clean.

 

As @@candle23 said, your Costco membership is good anywhere in the world. I tried to find out about fresh flowers but couldn't get an answer.

 

Now apparently there is also a Sam's Club in PDC. We have a membership since we spend so much time in the US. BUT if you're Canadian, you can get a single day pass for free to shop there since there are no Sam's Club stores in Canada.

 

While I was digging around I did find something that says Mega sells fresh flowers. They're located on 30th Ave.

I'm taking it easy.  The pain is starting to be a little bit more manageable.  

 

Back to bed.

thanks ladies for the well wishes!  Still healing but trying to do little things that will get me ahead.  I'm going to write my wedding speech today so that will be a big check off my to do list.  :)

Hugs. Sorry to hear about your burn. I hope you are ok. I agree though - with the right ointment they usually heal nicely. A coworker burnt her arm pretty bad with a pot of boiling water. I dressed it at work for her daily. I thought it looked 'bad' but a month or so later you couldn't even tell she had been burnt. I was shocked.

 

Hang in there.
