Just got home from our vacation in Guadalajara Mexico.  We had a wonderful time.  I got sick the second day, but was able to just take it easy that day and had hubby grab some Pred to take just a couple of days.  Rest of the time was awesome.   I just love the family down there, just really really good and loving people.  Probably won't be on much today, need to unpack etc, but just wanted to let you know I was back.

Glad you had a great trip! I wish I was in Mexico, it's been freezing here lately (I'm in Canada). My boyfriend is in Ixtapa right now though, I'm super jealous!

Thanks All!!! It was a great time. My husband's son and grandson went with us, and it was really nice getting to know them. We have set places we eat, and I think I ate some bad chicken is why I got sick. Stayed away from it the rest of the time, and did fine. Yes, Solanges I can speak a fair amount of spanish. I have 3 sister in laws who do not speak english at all and I am able to to be alone with any of them and carry a conversation.

I miscounted my Asacol that I took with me, and only took 1/2 the amount I needed. Luckily though I found a pharmacy that carried it. Cost $38 for 30 pills. Knew it would be costly, but I didn't want to take any chances of doing without it even for a few days. I am so tired though, I feel as if I need a vacation to recover from my vacation:) Might have to go get my B12 shot early to help pick me up.

Hey Randy, who's Rick?

Glad to have you back. I hope you recover from your vacation soon. I know what you mean, I usually end up coming home more tired from vacations than when I leave!
