So great to hear that Lenny.  I hope she has a swift recovery, whatever that involves.

Sorry another question. Is this the QR code on the front of the box or the QR code that is on the front of the test card?

 

You need to scan the QR code on the front of the test card.  We never used the QR code on the box itself.  Don't open the box until the proctor tells you to.  He/she will also tell you to remove the test card from it's own sealed packet so that you can scan the QR code.

Great news, Bob!!!!  

 

I found out yesterday I don't need to take the Covid test for my colonoscopy, since I've been vaccinated.  Yay me.😁
 

 

The only thing better than a negative Covid test is no Covid test at all.  Yay you!

Nobody mentioned a COVID test for mine  plus endoscopy. No one asked if I’ve been vaccinated, either!

But I have to have one before my pulmonologist visit and breathing test in November. 

Yeah, on one of the pages of instructions, it said a Covid test was needed, unless you had been vaccinated in the past 14 days;  I called just to make sure test wasn't needed, and they verified that I was good to go.  Jim will need a Covid test next Friday, since his knee surgery will be on the following Monday.

True story, Bob!  Have a great Cruise!  I want to cruise so badly, that if Jim wasn't having his knee surgery, I would've book a cruise out of Cape Liberty.

We received our Abbott test kit yesterday.  Took 2 days. Our current plan is to use this as a backup, the county has free drive up rapid test sites, one less than a mile from our home.  I drive by there a couple of times a day, and I never see a line at all, so if there are still there, we will use that.

Doesn't sound right to me.

I know.  I found it to be confusing the way it was written.  That's why I wound up calling.  When I said I had given the Office my vaccination card to be copied, he looked it up and said I was good to go.  So weird.

We both just successfully completed our Covid tests for our Allure cruise on Sunday.  Both negative!  Time to start packing.  If only we were allowed to take a wine filled broom closet with us.

Excellent!     Now all the fun anticipation of your cruise can begin without having the concern of a test weighing upon you.      Will you keep us posted and send us some photos while on the Allure?

The way some of these covid protocols are written for various things is so confusing when it doesn't have to be.      I hope my Gen Y son writes better than this at his job. 

 

When is your colonoscopy?     Good luck.    I promise I will get one done this year.

I can't remember who suggested it, but "Episodes" on Netflix with Matt LeBlanc is hilarious. Great TV. Thank you to whoever posted it.

I forgot all about that series.   It was really good.     It watched every week when it was first on Showtime.    If I remember correctly I think it mostly filmed in the UK.   Maybe I will re-watch on Netflix this winter.

Now if they could remove the need of that prep!!  Good luck to you and to Jim on his knee surgery.

 

@bobmacliberty Have a fabulous cruise.

Thanks Debbie.  Next Wednesday, the 22nd.  The prep is so much better, now that I can mix the miralax with Gatorade.  So much better!  Years ago, the stuff in the gallon container was so awful, I used to keep it cold in the freezer, and drink it very quickly each time I had to take it.Yuck!

Sign on my local Kroger's entrance door.  "Masks Required".  Store clerk was standing at the inside door I assumed to be sure it was enforced.  However, his mask was only covering his mouth, his nose exposed.  

 

Stopped into Sprouts and didn't notice a sign but everyone had on a mask.  I feel like we're taking one step ahead and two behind. 🙁

Question:  How do you find out the time that the ships have their Sail Away?  The Equinox, and I believe the Connie, are sailing out of Fort Lauderdale today.  Does anyone know the timetable?

I'm sure there's a quicker way.  I just fake book a cruise the week after and the departure time is listed.  Might not be the same exact time, though.

Agree. High time for a "friendlier" prep 😉

DH has had his 1st this Sunday. As a "veteran",  I kept an eye on him. He had to drink a "lousy" mixture, but before drinking, he was prescribed "Pramin"....

 

I gather every country has its "favorite prep" 😁

 

For me, the worst part is the hunger.... My gastro friend advised, after I complained, to schedule it early in the morning, saying that sleeping make it easier on the hunger.

 

DH had it at 4.30 PM, and was OK.

If you go to cruisemapper.com it shows Equinox sail away is 1800 (6 pm).

Beautiful family.     looks like the big guy really enjoyed the food you laid out on your patio.

Yes, The big Buck like's the Apple flavored corn I pick up at Royal King. He better not get used to the patio, there is going to be a hot tub sitting on there in a few days 😉

Happy to hear his procedure went well.   The guy Eric goes will only schedule colonoscopies for mornings as he does his office visits in the afternoon.    I coudn't imagine waiting until 430 in the afternoon to get done - that would drive me bonkers.
