Okay,1st post and i had no idea where to post it!
Sorry if it needs re-routing mods


Yesterday morning my 11 and 12 year old daughters flew out of the UK headed for San Francisco.Their 1st time on a plane and with their Grandparents(my other daughter is not a flyer so we have never taken them abroad),i was worried anyway


You see,i had one of my 'feelings' that i shouldn't let them go but decided to go with it all,telling myself that i am a worrywort.From my previous 'feelings' i should know to trust them.

Firstly,San Fransisco was being hit by a Typhoon as they were due to land.That had me fractious,i was tracking the plane-checking altitude-you name it......and then the call.

Grandad: Daughter no.1 taken ill en route,vomiting.She went into panic-mode and ended up in business class,horizontal and on oxygen.

Me:Oh ****,please keep me posted(sob)

Next call....

Grandad:Can't let us off the plane,medical team are boarding....need to check her for Swine flu(and other)symptoms......

Me:Oh no!(or words to that effect) *mass of emotions ensue*

Next call....

Grandad:Through the airport in minutes with Police escort....No.1 en route to Hospital in ambulance....will keep you posted....

Next call....

Grandad:No1. a bit dehydrated and on a drip.No2 fine but upset.

Me: Phew *sheds tears of utter relief*

Today i'm telling myself it will all be fine,that was the drama i was worried about and it's gone.....but still i have a niggle that something is not right.

Spoken to no.1 today and she is tired but is otherwise ok.She said she just felt scared because everyone was worried.

Now.I remember being scared and vomiting when i first flew and i know she hates being sick infront of people(My mum was the same and got sedated on the way to france once!) and needs fresh air when she's sick so,i think she just had a panic on top of feeling queasy.
When i last flew,the back of the seat infront on a plane had a net bag that housed a few things but, ALWAYS had a sick bag!A bag in which to puke!Are they there still or is it not usual to be sick on planes anymore???
Honestly,i know they're being careful,but the evidence suggested she'd just hurled because of flying.....Do they do this EVERY time someone is sick on a plane?

About 300-odd people had to wait nearly 40 mins to get off a plane last night because of my daughter and 'procedure'.
How many flights are these 'procedures' holding up?

(and as a side note,should i be concerned that Obama is in S.F this week?I'm a nervous wreck now as it is :lol

It was over the top, in my opinion. But airlines are afraid that if they don't do EVERYTHING that they can, then there may be a law-suit down the line.

Glad your kids are ok, that's the important thing.

Hope they enjoy the states.

ahh so they had to wait 40 min extra, the lil ones are ok thats whats importnat, they can reschedule what ever it is they had.

The important thing is the med team acted like they should and got her attention just to be on the safe side. May just end up being flying and dehydrated, but better safe with all the things going around now days.

Think about it.

Suppose the CIA (or other 3-letter agency) had just carried out their latest experiment by injecting compound X (zombie vaccine) into the air handling system of a passenger plane. Wouldn't you like the passengers quarantined until you knew the zombie plague was under control??
