I Love Aruba Countdown on Hold

I've been counting down for our return visit on March 4th but it turns out I might have to have ankle surgery soon. Recovery in a cast is 10 weeks with rehab to follow. Not so good for snorkeling! I'll know better next week. We used ff miles and Marriott points so it might be tricky to rebook but I'm still hopeful we'll make it sometime this spring.

Please keep up all the great postings, especially trip reports. This bulletin board is my lifeline and will help me keep my spirits up if we have to postpone or wait until next year.

I Love Aruba Re: Countdown on Hold

Good luck Shelley, and don't count it out yet. As I posted on another thread, my brother broke his wrist yesterday and needed surgery. The doctor at first said that his trip next month to Aruba was doubtful, but after surgery... even with the pins implanted, it's a go. I'm so happy 'cause it wouldn't be the same there for me without my bro and sister in law. Keep good thoughts!!!
