Hepatitis vaccines, past and present

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have some questions about hepatitis vaccines. I live in Los Angeles, and have recently seen a few articles in the local paper about an outbreak of hepatitis A in the area. I went to my hospital and requested the hepatitis A vaccine. I was given the first of a two-shot vaccine, and was told to come back in six months for the second shot. I asked the nurse how long the vaccine would protect me after I took the second shot, and she didn't know the answer to my question.

Puppies for Christmas not wise idea

DEAR DIDI: Our kids have been begging for a dog for a couple of years now. My husband wants to surprise them with a puppy for Christmas but I am worried that it might send the wrong message to the kids. He insists that we are strict enough to enforce the chores that will be involved. We have five kids: a girl age 2, a boy age 4, a boy age 6, a boy age 7, and a girl age 9. Do you have any recommendations for us? -Professional Mom

We hate phone menus & don’t trust virtual assistants like Siri

"Just thinking about it makes me break out into hives" reported one man in his 60's. A woman in her 30's said she does everything she can to avoid it, including pretending she doesn't speak English. A woman in her 20's said she'll do an intensive online search, including blogs, websites and forums, to find others struggling with the same problem so she feels "less alone."

I Got Fired for Calling Out Liberal Hypocrisy on Clinton Accusers

It was bizarre watching KABC TalkRadio in Los Angeles - my hypocritical ex-employer - hold a televised press conference. It turns out that one of the station's news anchors, Leeann Tweeden, claims Sen. Al Franken groped her. In 2006, Tweeden said, before Franken became a senator, he and she participated in a USO tour to entertain the troops in the Middle East.

Bicuspid aortic valve has only two leaflets

DEAR DR. ROACH: I was diagnosed with a bicuspid aortic valve at age 54 (I'm now 62). I see a general cardiologist annually for an echocardiogram and an EKG, and have had one transesophageal echocardiogram. However, he has never ordered a CT or MRI to thoroughly check my aorta. I've read that BAV patients may have a connective tissue disorder, resulting in aortic problems (aneurysm, dissection).
