Friends:  Had a wonderful birthday lunch at Tommy Bahamas with some very thoughtful friends today!  That was great!

Medical: 

  • Had kids' medical checkup- several shots- ouch!  Also got 2 antibiotic prescriptions per kid, with 2 doses per child (Just because you get Traveler's Diarrhea once doesn't mean you won't get it again on the same trip.

  • I had compiled, highlighted, and printed medical recommendations from the CDC based on the countries we plan to visit, which was helpful to the physician:  http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/default.aspx

 

  • Lia needed Hep A vaccine, so will return for her final shot in October.  The rest of us got both Hep A & B when we adopted Lia.

 

  • We went by Redi-Clinic in our HEB grocery store which is also a travel clinic.  Got prices and recommendations from the nurse practitioner for several shots.  Very expensive - most were over $100 per person, but fortunately we only need Typhoid oral vaccines for $84 each.  They were one of just 2 travel clinics listed here from the CDC site:  https://www.istm.org/  We will also get our Malaria prescriptions from the travel clinic.
