Just a quick note: Europe has changed the HPV vaccine from a 3 dose to a 2 dose schedule. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) will be voting next month to see if the US can change to a two dose series. There will probably be at least 6 to 12 months between doses recommended. Stay tuned!
It is common in the summer months for parents to worry about their child's vaccines being delayed by summer travel or simply scheduling conflicts. The typical question I am asked is along the lines of, "He is due for his 4 mo...

Vaccines don't have to hurt as much as some fear
Many kids are scared of shots. Some even fight parents and nurses when it's time to get shots. The more they fight and worry, the worse it gets. But it doesn't have to be that way. Photo source: Wikimedia In general there are some things that increase anxie...

This was more than a rafting trip - it was an experience! The guides (Andy, Jake, and Eli?) were hilarious and made the hour bus ride to and from the river fun. My too-cool-to-enjoy-myself teen even had fun. I think I even caught him laughing and singing along on the bus. We went with 3 generations (14 - 73 years old) and all had a blast. Two of our group took the kayak option and after lunch we all got to re-run the Anaconda on rafts or kayaks (or both), giving others an option to try the kayak. One kayak newbie flipped the kayak (he hadn't been able to practice on the slower parts of the river like those who took the kayak the whole trip) but the guides were quick to the rescue. It was fun going through the Anaconda as many times as we wanted. The water was refreshingly brisk so only one of my group jumped in when we got to the swimming areas but if the sun was out it would have felt great to get in. Lunch was fantastic. Even my picky eater went back for seconds! The photographer got some great shots of us to help remember and share the fun. I'd highly recommend this trip.

My two kids and I always have a great experience when we see Dr. Mock. She is thorough with the exam and in answering questions. When one of us (or all of us) is (are) borderline with needing a new prescription she is able to help weigh the pros and cons of new glasses, never pressuring for a quick change.
