Hospitalized in Aruba?

My sister has a friend that is on a cruise that docked in Aruba. Her husband became ill and had to be hospitalized in Aruba and is there right now as far as I know (11-4-2008). She has not been able to visit her husband after he was admitted. She is rightly very upset. She said they prohibit women visitors. Could this be true? Doesn't seem feasible to me, but would like to know as my DH and I will be there later this month. Anyone have an answer?

That sounds bizarre, but I have no firsthand experience. Is she sure she heard correctly? Perhaps he's in a part of the hospital that doesn't allow visitors in general. I'd advise your sister's friend to contact the embassy/consulate and double-check that this is their actual policy.

For those familiar with the Maxine cartoons:

She's the best!!!

Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in this country lately: illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida ..

[insert picture of Maxine here. feet up on ottoman, eating popcorn.]

Not me. I concentrate on solutions for the problems. It's a win-win situation.

+ Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.

+ Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levies.

+ Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today ? Yes!

Think about this one:

1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments

C O W S

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

T H E C O N S T I T U T I O N

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq .... Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore

T H E 1 0 C O M M A N D M E N T S

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this:
You cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal,' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians.. It creates a hostile work environment.

PART OF THE PROBLEM
Also, Think about this: If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending
someone-- YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM!

It is Time for America to Speak up !

Yep, I passed it on!
