Family Vacations & Getaways Family Vacations & Getaways

Has anyone ever gotten sick during your travel?

Posted by   + Show Post

Warning I did the best I could not to make it sound too gross.  :)

This past Wednesday we were on our way to visit my family in SC.  I didn't know but DH wasn't feeling too good that morning.  We ate McDonald's breakfast and he had oj.  Little did he know that was a bad choice.  As we were leaving we prayed as usual and he asked me to drive.  He wasn't looking too good but he insisted we leave.  (10 hr trip)  About 30 minutes into our trip he grab bags that our snacks were in, dropped them out and you know the rest.  I thought we would just have to pull over but when I looked over I knew we had had to turn around.  He needed cleaning and so did the van.  We stayed at home for about 3 hours so he can rest.  About 4 pm we left and I drove the first 5 hours.

Once I was pregnant and right in the middle of a traffic jam I got sick.  We finally reached a McDonald's (lol) so I could get cleaned up.

Once my oldest let it all out 5 minutes from arriving to my mom's house.  Thank the Lord we were close.

Ugh UTI!.  I suffer from that periodically.  This is one uncomfortable thing to go through.
