    We have a 6:45 am flight tomorrow, A 27 and A 28 boarding passes printed out. I should be ecstatic...we only go once a year! I have also had a very personal relationship with my bathroom for the past 3 days. There is a stomach bug going around my area and I really think that the anxiety of the trip enhances my underlying medical conditions. It better stop before I head out on a long day of traveling. Been living on Gatorade and toast (and immodium) for the past few days. Just Very :grrr: right now. If I don't make it to Tuesdays meet you will know why.

    Ugh! We have that one here too. If the Imodium isn't helping, there's a prescription strength version that you could probably get from a doc-in-a-box type place if you tell them you're traveling. Just an idea! I had the same issue on my last trip, as my work's had a ton of stomach bugs this year.

    If you need the name, let me know! :peace:

    I know exactly how you feel Tammy. In 2008, the night where just hours before my flight out for a weekend to Vegas, I felt queasy and ejected what I thought was just food that didn't agree with me. I get to the airport, fly out to Vegas with no issues and then had to make a fast visit to the porcelain bowl again at McCarran. I knew something was wrong now. I get to the hotel and was confined to it for the rest of the night. I couldn't be more than 10 feet away from the can. This continued to the next day and finally cleared out by that evening.

    I'm sure this has happened to a number of us once before our highly anticipated trip to sin city. I hope things clear up for you in time for your trip! Drink lots of water.

    I know how it can just slam you. Our trip to Phoenix in Feb something got to my wife on the trip. She looked so bad, the FA had a wheelchair waiting for her when we arrived. We didn't request it.

    She almost made it to the bathroom at the rental car facility.:vomit:

    She spent that night and all of the next day in bed, but the good news is we still managed two rounds of golf and a Spring training baseball game after it cleared up.

    Hope you're better!

    Thanks all, I'm sure trip anxiety is probably making it a little worse than it would have normally been. Popping the meds, careful what I eat and I am sure it will pass in time. As long as I don't make a fool of myself on the plane it will all be good in the end. After all it's Vegas :thumbsup:

    I hope your stomach is much better in time for your trip. There has been so much stomach crud going around this year. I hope you're back to normal soon!

    I hope you feel better soon. I had that problem one trip, started 30 minutes before take off and ended 30 minutes after returning home. Still had a good time. Don't think my college buddy was to happy though.

    Losing my entire gambling budget and getting sick before a trip are two of my biggest fears. Hope you get better soon.
