You might ask your doctor is she needs the booster. They say the shot is only 65% effective and now recommend boosters, especially if they got it when they were small.

A teen at our church just got over the chicken pox last week. I couldn't imagine not having it until I was a teen! It was hard enough when I was 6.

Too lazy to Google...if a kid gets the CP vaccine, are they protected from shingles later?

Only at a similar level to someone who had Chicken Pox as a kid, so um no.

That's what the nurse told me on Tuesday. Not sure about the older vaccine, and there may be some difference based on age. If Ver1 doesn't get Chicken Pox she has to go back in 3 months and get the booster. In littler kids they recommend a few years before the booster shot.

I asked son's doc about that a few months ago and he said no booster recommendation at this time. Son got it when he was about 6.

I may still have him get a booster when he goes off to college though. If he goes local for the first year, I can postpone that decision for a year.

I had no idea he was so tiny! I bet he's going to be uncomfortable around the bigger students, especially if he needs a booster seat in each class.

Oh, man, they'll kick his ass when he starts going to bars.

in addition to the "back to top" button, i wouldn't mind another list of links to forums at the bottom. you know, links to "woots," "world of woot," "contests," "side deals", "ebw."

You aren't the only one that misses that. I don't mind going back to the top to click EBW on the mac (it's easier), but on the PC, PITA.

Tom Mapother has just one tooth in the middle of his smile, not the matched pair like everybody else. It's like a third tooth came on in to fill a huge gap in between the two teeth that normally fit in there. That does not appear to be "turned out okay" in my book...

Nonsense! He's a perfectly sensible and well-adjusted human being and I think you are all just jellis.

As for the tooth thing...well...maybe he's half-shark. Tom ManShark.

I'm just saying that one tooth in the middle of the smile is not quite right. It's like all his teeth got twisted off to the side or something!

i thought somewhere out there someone said you had results done up through 205 or so. i only see results for 203. i thought the holdup was on the paid staff's end.

if you're mousing with one hand and tickling a toddler (or, if you prefer, quaffing a beer) with the other, that doesn't leave any hands for the keyboard.

Yes, but it's more efficient if you can just keep your hand on the mouse.

That is peculiar. I never noticed that!
That extra tooth probably controls his thoughts or something.

Yeah, after I noticed it, that's all I see now. It's like "Look! It's a giant centered tooth jumping on Oprah Winfrey's couch! I sort of hope the tooth breaks that couch!" and "Look! Katie Holmes is walking down the street with a giant centered tooth!" and "Look! That giant centered tooth had her at 'hello'!!"

I have a backwards tooth (bicuspid). It was sideways when I got braces. It was a shorter distance to turn it backwards than it was to turn it the right way. New dentists always call it out to me. Yeah, I know.
