    I feel your pain.  Just keep in mind that the pandemic has truly hobbled the supply chain.  We bought a new house in late February and had it inspected in early March. The inspection showed that one of three burners were inoperable.  We had them order the parts immediately.  It remains on factory backorder.  It would not be so awful if it were not the only burner that includes the simmer option (it is a gas range-so that really matters.)
    Hang in there.

    Thanks for letting us know.  I am sure you have lots of other things to worry about, but I am glad to know that things are progressing well.

    Hey all! Doc said the surgery went great, no problems at all. I’ve got one heck of a sore throat from being intubated for anesthesia for 2+ hours, and I’m only just now getting off my usual post-surgery nausea (or maybe not so much; sat up to help with doing the breathing exercise that helps clear the anesthesia and felt another wave hit me 🤢). But foot is decently comfortable with meds; and doc said he wants to see me tomorrow to change the dressing and do an initial evaluation.

    Just wanted to let you know that I hope all goes well tomorrow!   I’ll be thinking of you.  More importantly, please remember that beauty comes from the inside out-not the other way around.  This, whatever the outward appearance of your foot, it cannot impact the the true beauty of your essence.

    Please note that WAAATOOO, who is a sweet and lovely person judging by her posts, cruises primarily if not exclusively in suites.   I have cruised in both regular cabins and suites.  I am not very picky but I would not use the basic “all in one” in the regular cabins.   On the other hand, the products in the suite were wonderful

    Very stressful!  Selling our house was easy!  Purchasing has been another story.  The housing market is crazy.

    The bar tender was always available in the suite lounge on Harmony in August of 2019.  In fact, as soon as I walked in for breakfast each morning, a mimosa was ready within seconds of my arrival (whether I wanted or not-although of course, I always wanted it!)  All in all, I did not find the suite service on Oasis to be nearly as great as it was on Harmony.

    Sorry, I mistyped.  I was on Oasis in March of 2020!  Second to last cruise before they stopped.  And yes, I do think cruises will be operational by March 2022.

    I agree with everything said on this topic.  I will give a personal endorsement for Sharla.  She has been awesome and patient in helping navigate these tricky times.

    I use Sharla at MEI.  She is incredibly responsive.  I have never waited more than 12 hours for a response to an email, even on the weekend.  She checks frequently for price drops and reprices even if the savings is only a few dollars.  She is knowledgeable about both ports of call and embarkation ports.  I have used AAA in the past and am far happier with MEI.  I am not sure how the payment process works, but my credit card statement shows direct payment to Royal, even though I give the number to Sharla.  
     
    Best of luck!
