Thank you all for the welcome back! I have missed being a part of the boards but am encouraged by all the activity that I am seeing! This is GREAT! I know I have a lot to catch up on but first I will give you the Bennet Update!
Bennet was discharge from the hospital on Jan. 11th and he and I went to my uncle's empty house for a week while the girls were getting over the cold/flu. He finally came home on Jan 18th. He is on an apnea monitor, medication for reflux, thickened feeds, a nutritional supplement in addition to mommy's milk, gas drops and a strict
feeding routine. He also sees the chiropractor three times a week and I am on a low dairy diet to aid with his digestion. (Which is hard because I Love everything dairy but I certainly love Bennet more!) He was seeing the pediatrician every 7-10 days but has been doing so well that now we only have to see him about once a month. Bennet is nearly 10lbs and is just doing to fantastic overall. He still has a hard time with the reflux but is much improved over what it was before thanks to everything above. He has only had one very minor apnea episode since we came home and we are thankful that the machine picked it up, alerted us and we were able to respond before anything serious happened. A little rub on the chest and he was breathing again just fine on his own. The girls have just been loving having him around and we have settled into normal routine that of course evolves around his feeding schedule every three hours.
Thank you again for all the thoughts and prayers, they were much needed and much appreciated! I am really looking forward to introducing him to most of you on the July sailing! There is much to celebrate Housekeeping:
Because of Bennet's strict and time consuming schedule I am having to change how I do business. Until further notice I am switching to an email only correspondance system. I can not guarantee being able to pick up the phone with any regularity until Bennet's schedule relaxes more. I apologize in advance if this inconviences anyone. I will however be fairly prompt at responding to emails the same day or at latest by the following day.For those already booked:
I will be contacting you over the course of this month to reconfirm reservations, special requests and anything else you may need. I will be starting with those booked for July and then move on to those booked for Christmas. If you won a contest since Nov. 5:
please send me a copy of the winner confirmation email and (if you haven't already) a booking form. For those who booked direct with Cunard USA and would like to be transferred into our group:
Please email me and in the subject line put "Request for Transfer Letter" I will send you a copy of the letter you will need to fill out and either send directly to Cunard or you can send it back to me and I will send it to Cunard for you. For those who would like to book a new cabin for July 1st:
Please use the booking forms found either on this site or at: www.ambiancetc.com
The Current Sale with reduced deposit and OBC will be the only one offered before final payment is due Apr. 2
After April 2 I have to finalize the group and any new bookings will be at the general rate Cunard offers at that time and space will NOT be guaranteed.
The Sale goes until Feb. 11th, 2009 and I must receive the booking form prior to 6:00pm on that day or I will not have time to process it before the sale ends at 10:00pm.
Thank you again for all your patience!
