Our honeymoon is cancelled

We were supposed to leave tomorrow morning for Hawaii, but I got sick sometime in the middle of the week with flu-like symptoms. We went back and forth with trying to decide if I should just try to suck it up and go, but with the way I am feeling, there's no way I want to get on a plane for such a long @$$ flight, and then have to stay away from my new husband for the whole trip, and not enjoy myself. We are trying to decide when to reschedule. I am beyond crushed. We'd been looking forward to this trip for 6 months. :(

    Oh no Katherine, I am so sorry to hear that!  I hope that you feel better soon and you are able to make time again in the near future to get away.  Did you have trip insurance?? I am hoping so! I can't say that I blame you for cancelling it with the way you are feeling.  What good is a honeymoon if you don't feel well and can't smooch the new hubby!?  Get well soon!!

    I had the flu last week and it was horrible.  I was better within 3 days though and still went on my girls trip that weekend event hough I didn't feel 100%.  Peronally I would go.  Take some meds, airborne and extra vitamins and go.  You have no idea what may come along and prevent you from going in the future.  You will get better on the trip. You can be sick and sit on the beach all day :)

    Boo!!Hiss!!! being sick is sucky.  I'm so sorry that you have to post-pone, but think of it this way....its just post-poning NOT cancelling and maybe you guys will have even more money to spend if you have to wait a little bit :)  Good luck and FEEL BETTER!

    Ok, update, DH called up EVERYONE (took him an hour on the phone) and rebooked everything for next weekend. All the changes wound up costing us $700, which sucks (lesson learned, GET TRIP INSURANCE), but it's better than not being able to go at all. Momofayden, I thought about sucking it up and going, but the thought of being on a plane for 11 hours with all the aches, chills, and coughing, I just dont think i could have done it. I'd rather be better, and yeah, so I can actually get within 6 feet of my DH ;)

    I'm so glad that everything was rescheduled! I think you made the right decision in that---who wants to be sick on their hm?

    I am glad you were able to rebook it!  I hope you have a wonderful time.

    Aww it sucks that you had to postpone.  But I'm really glad your DH could get it all worked out.  I think the extra cost is worth not feeling like complete sh*t on your honeymoon.  Get lots of rest and drink lots of fluid!

    Glad you were able to get in rescheduled. Enjoy your HM now, it was worth waiting. And give us a review on how it goes!!

    Katherine - I am SO sorry! I hope you are feeling better, and I am really glad that everything was able to get rescheduled. It's probably better, because you never know what would have happened at the airport with as crazy as people are about the flu. You might have gotten there, and they might have very well refused to let you board with horrible flu-like symptoms. That would have REALLY sucked!BUT...you'll have such a better time feeling healthy - so enjoy next week! :)

    I hate that for you.  I had flu-like symptoms for three days before the wedding (fever of 104, aches, chills, etc).  The first day of my honeymoon, I vegged out and slept for 12 straight hours.  So I can really sympathize with you there.  I lost my voice during the vows.I'm pretty sure my stateroom steward (Juan) thought that I was going to die.  He brought me some tylenol! :-)At least you have a trip to look forward to later on though (take the time to feel better and plan another!)
