Got back late Saturday night from our vacation in Guadalajara.  Had a very nice time and the weather was awesome.  It was in the mid to high 70's the whole time.  I live in Southern California and came home to a big rain storm, but it was back to beautiful yesterday.  My tummy problems seemed to continue so I took a weeks worth of Xifaxan and that helped to quiet things down.   I was supposed to go back to work today, but had to call in sick as I have a stomach virus.  Hubby had it yesterday.  Oh joy!!!  Was up all night either throwing up or with bad diarrhea.  Trying to get some soup down, hopefully that will help a little.  Anyways, its good to be home, I really missed my own bed.redface

scoolWelcome back! The reason I've never gone to Mexico is because I don't want to catch a stomach virus. I go to the bathroom too much as it is. I do enjoy Hawaii very much though and have never had problems there. Get well soon!

Thanks all, its good to be back.  I am feeling a little better today, just have that irritated tummy feeling, but that will get better in time.

Grandpato2, I travel to Mexico all the time, this virus is not a result of my travel.  Well in a way it is, from someone sick on the plane.  Not from my Mexican visit.  Plus I know it was just the stomach flu as my hubby had it the day before I did.

Anyways, looks like I have alot of reading to do to catch up.

Hugs
