Scare Over

Oh bloggies . . . I had a bit of a scare this week. I'm sure you've noticed that I haven't really blogged much since my return. That's mainly because I've been seriously under the weather. Feeling just downright sick and horrible.

On Tuesday, I found myself with some difficulty breathing and got worried. I mean we all know I just came back from Mexico. And although there have been no cases of swine flu in Quintana Roo I didn't want to be the first one.

Given all my symptoms I decided to play it safe and stay at home yesterday. I also went to the Doctor. His eyes kind of bugged out when I said I was sick and had just returned from Mexico! lol

Thankfully he did some tests and I'm swine flu free (whew!)!! He did tell me however that I'm suffering from a severe allergic reaction. This is all thanks to Delta and the plane load of passengers that consumed peanuts. :o( I'm allergic to peanuts and five days later I'm still horribly sick. Boourns!

Anywho - I'm going to pump myself full of Benadryl and get back to my regular routine! I have some blogging and training to do! And that can't wait any longer! :o)

Besides I hear there's a GIVEAWAY in order!!!!!

Stay tuned later tonight bloggies . . .

Holy crap! Glad you're ok.

My friend came back from Manzanillo recently with a weird illness too that wasn't H1N1.

Weird stuff.

It turned out to be nothing. But some of the people getting on the flight in Cancun sounded sick so I was a little edgy.

Having said that I didn't see any signs of swine flu while I was down there. None at all!

PHEW! So glad it's not swine. I hope you're feeling better with your allergy meds.

Thanks! I'm glad I'm okay too! :o) Ditto for my co-workers who were afraid to breathe near me this morning! lol

oh my goodness im so glad you are ok!!!!!!!!!! swine flu free = a good thing

I'm relieved although from what I hear H1N1 is quite mild. It's just that they don't know how to control its spread.

So glad you are okay!! We all need to be updated on your trip once you are better!

Good job on going to the doc. That peanut allergy thing is mucho scarioso!

Hope the benadryl kicks in!

A Toronto girl out West said...


lol Yes I have some serious blogging to do! I'm still waiting for the Mexico pictures to arrive but I'll get started with what I have! :o)

Isn't it horrible? I was stunned when they started handing out peanut stuff.

Forcing me to remain in a confined space (for hours!) with an allergen was cruel indeed. I owe Delta an angry letter.

I'm surprised they would be serving peanuts on the flight - seems like every time I get on a plane now, you get weird rice sticks or something as your snack. Hopefully you'll feel better soon :)

eeek glad you are ok!

That Pink Girl said...

Whew, so glad no piggy flu for you! But Allergies can really get you down too. Take your meds and get plenty of rest. Can't wait to see what you have in store..

A Toronto girl out West said...


Gracias! :o)


I know!!! You should have seen my face when they gave out free snacks of peanuts and also sold all manner of peanut snacks.
