We are back from our cruise to Halfmoon Cay, Grand Turk, Aruba and Bonaire. It was an amazing trip. Let me show you some highlights before I tell you about my stress.

It was beautiful if not a bit cloudy here and there. I started out completely stressed and not knowing if I could even go. Why? Because I was honest on the health questionnaire. I was recovering from a non-covid upper respiratory, sinus infection. As soon as I did this my profile was flagged and I had to jump through hoops getting paperwork from my doctor. Fortunately, I have a fabulous doctor and medical receptionist.

So, we arrived in Miami still not knowing if the ship’s doctor would let me on. I made my poor husband carry our luggage on, because no way was it going on a cruise with us. LOL!

Surprisingly the process was smooth after the check-in person found our VIFP profiles flagged. We were ushered to see the doctor who looked over our paperwork, and checked our covid test paperwork. He made sure I brought my medication as I am thinking it would be stupid not to bring the meds that help me breathe and keep my anxiety to a low roar.

Then we were on our way to board the ship. Eight days of relaxation and people waiting on us. After a brief trip on a tour bus through Miami, we went to the airport to spend the rest of the day at the airport. Made even longer as our plane was late.

We finally made it back home about 2:30 am. I awoke in a fibro flare. Not surprising as I usually have consequences for having fun. I am still recovering today, 2 days later.

While on the cruise we scheduled our next cruise and can’t wait until next year. Oh and I hope you had a fabulous St. Paddy’s Day!

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
