We are very lucky to be at the heart of the Mayo Clinic here in Rochester, Minnesota. Last week, we spent almost four hours at the "Travel and Infectious Diseases Clinic." It was an extensive but informative visit (Dan spent most of the time rolling his eyes so he may not feel the same way)....a video on travel safety, review of DON'T DRINK THE WATER, a wonderful pediatrician who made sure the girls are all up to date on their immunizations. Then, of course, the travel shots. We left the clinic with twelve shots between the four of us. OUCH!! We are now going back weekly to finish up the series. Heps, Typhoid, Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis, and probably more that I can't remember. The girls hate it but have been very good. DQ after the appointment seems to really help. At least it makes me feel better. What is it about the ice cream that makes all the ouches and negatives go away??
