From Paradise to Hell

Posted: February 25, 2007 in General

For the two weeks before our trip to St. Lucia I had been having some mild stomach pains. Nothing that would keep me from my daily routine, but certainly an annoyance. With the impending trip I was certainly less apt to go to the doctor (of course I haven’t been to the doctor in a number of years, so I didn’t even really have someone to call anyway).

My pains continued on the trip and seemed to get slightly worse when we got back (Saturday night I got a fever and slept for 12 hours). Cara, also seemed to get sick, so we called the doctor and made an appointment. Cara, had caught some kind of a bug, but my situation was a little more mysterious, and the doctor wanted me to go to the hospital to get an ultrasound.


Back from St. Lucia

Saturday morning (in the moments before 1am), Cara and I returned from our trip to St. Lucia. I have to say that overall the vacation was mediocre, which is an unfortunate thing to say.

Things didn’t start out well. Our flight was supposed to leave at 6am, so Cara and I left the house around 3:30. We arrived to find that the ticket counter doesn’t even open until 4:30 (so we stood in line for a half hour that we could have been sleeping). When we finally boarded the plane we were told that the flight was being delayed due to weather in Atlanta (where we were connecting through). We landed five minutes before our connecting flight was supposed to take off (and we were three terminals away). After a quick discussion with Delta about rescheduling the flight we found out that Delta only flies to St. Lucia once a day.
