    While at TTR this trip I got the upper respiratory ailment that other numerous people got. ( still have it )

    I would like to thank all of my April addicts friends who showed concern and asked how I was doing.
    And special thanks to Sue for bringing me her home remedy.

    Had it not been for the caring nature of CC peeps this trip would have been a washout. Out of 12 nights we only made it past 10pm on 2 , and only made theme nights dress about 4. We would make a showing then head back. Could not endure the smoke @ Patios when you can't breathe in the first place. ( they need fans )

    The resort was great this time , with what seemed to be extended hours at the restaurants, cause we always had somewhere good to eat with out a line up.
    The Staff is simply amazing, always have a smile and good positive comments, making our experience truly enjoyable even when I was sick. .

    As far as the illness, people speculate the AC , and the mist from the tubs , but it seems to be sparactic as to who it was hitting.
    Bring Cipro with you,


    Thanks again every one and sorry Steve for missing out on the Cruises ( believe me I new the who was going to be there ;) ,, and wanted to go ).


    Cheers

    Don

    Oh no...there isn't another virus at the resort is there? We were there last year when the stomach bug spread like wild fire and it took us out for 6 days out of a 14 day trip plus we'd had a 24 hour delay! Really hoping for NO hick ups this time or illnesses. Sorry to hear you got poorly Donald and really hope you are starting to feel better! :)

    Sorry to hear. Know how you feel It usually gets me when I'm there too. I think I have an allergy to something that adds to the mold problem. I'm going in 2 weeks but only for 2 nights. Going to try spraying Lysol in the ac and bring damp rid.

    I'm bummed for you, Donald. I almost never get sick, but when I do...it seems to be at the worst possible time. Only one thing to do...start planning the next trip.

    Sorry to hear that! Did you at least get to enjoy the day?

    A friend that we went with last year was sick for 5 out of the 7 days- even though you do everything to try and not let it wreck your trip......it really does. :(

    Hopefully you will get to have a "do-over" this year!

    That's happened to me before, now for at least the week before I mass up on multi-vitamins, probiotics, and airborne and keep taking it thru the trip. Seems to have made a difference.

    Oh NO!!!! I'm so sorry to hear that!!! Definitely packing extra of everything now!!!! Already have two damp rid bags in the suitcase plus allergy meds, decongestant, Greens that are on steroids (vitamins, probiotics, you name it), electrolytes. Airplanes tend to jack me up with the pressurized germs so my fingers are crossed!

    I HATE this happened to you :( Hope you are feeling better and glad you got to enjoy some time!

    I would think TTR would do something about this long ongoing problem with the room air quality, it's been 4 years since we have been there and that was a problem then .Wake up management!!

    if it truly air quality , every resort would have the same problem.

    Air is blasted , then shut off when room is vacant then back on..

    Some resorts have AC,s run by your room key , so cycling is even worse



    Some swear by bring a can of Lysol and spaying the intake of the air while on

    Can't hurt

    We come from a dry cool climate into a hot humid climate , it is a shock to our system.

    there seemed to be a few more this year, short of bring a CSI team in we will never know.

    I do have problems at all hotels in cancun area. That is why I think it is allergy/mold related. But TTR is worse for me. I am going to bring a nedi pot this time too. Going to Desire from TTR so we will see how I do.

    :eek::icon_lol: (I need a little guy that's holding his belly, rolling on the ground! That's some funny $hi.. right there!)

    And we live in a humid climate and since we moved here from NC, we have had Damp Rid bags hung RELIGIOUSLY around the house. We are in a BRAND new Energy Star house (so, sealed as tightly as a house can be sealed, allegedly) and we have one in my each bedroom closet, one in our room (we were being bad about leaving the master bedroom door open during showers and EVERYONE showers in our room, even the kids - that's a LOT of moisture - that one will go away once we get in the habit of closing the dang door), one in the pantry (just to handle the main living space moisture), one in the broom/vacuum/backpack/swim bag closet, one in the laundry room...that may be it.

    Point is - humidity kills! lol Ok, that's an exaggeration but these bags have QUITE a bit of water in the bottom sections after only a week or two and it hasn't even gotten humid here yet - I can only imagine what a hotel room, where they likely have to clean carpet nastiness from time to time, people leave wet towels around, rain gets in when doors are left open, etc. etc. in an area that is completely surrounded by water must be like air moisture content wise.

    Oh, I put one in my car, too lol (Helps with the workout bag/shower towel situation). We are only coming for 5 days so I'll happy to pass our bags on to others when we leave since I'm sure they will just be getting going by the morning of the 6th! We'll even be nice and give them to you before bed :)

    Guys its a virus...cold air does not make you sick viruses do. Someone has a virus they cough on something you touch what they coughed on and rub your eyes noes or mouth and then you get sick. You can't be Canadian and think cold air causes infections. All off Canada would be dead after this winter.
