Currently Reading: "One Year Off" by Cohen -makes me laugh until I'm sick
Friends: Had a wonderful birthday lunch at Tommy Bahamas with some very thoughtful friends today! That was great!
- 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.
33 days and counting!
