I have been reading this board for months getting all kinds of very helpful info. Briefly let me say that the Palms was absolutley beautiful and the staff was great. Unfortunately, I must report a serious incident that seems to be very isolated on this island but still, happened to me. On Thurday 10-13, our day of departure I awoke with felt like the beginning of the flu, aches chills etc. By 3:00 the fever was setting in and by the time we reached Boston at 10 pm, my condition worsened to the point of being ambulanced to the hospital. I spent the next 3 days in the ICU with a deadly GI infection that brought on Septic Shock to my body. Every doctor is mystified as to what brought this on, all the cultures so far have been negative, all of the infectious disease dept is also unsure. Today is the first day of having enough strength to sit at the computer. I hope I have done the right thing by reporting this, I pray I do no harm to your beautiful island and people. Everyone else I was with ate and drank the same as I did, I thank god everyday that even my 22 month old toddler stayed well. I am a VERY healthy 38 yo w/o any health issues, if anyone has any specific info that I could report it to my doctors that would be most appreciated. I am home now resting, trying to gain my strength back.
I wish everyone well.
