PediNewz Today #7

Hi Everyone!

Happy Fall! Autumn is finally here and with it comes the season of family holidays. Halloween is right around the corner and is always eagerly anticipated by my kids. Some of my best family memories involved Halloween - perhaps it is zanniness and fantasy of the day.

As much fun as Halloween can be, there are some dangers to be aware of. Check out my Halloween Safety Page for helpful and easy to follow safety ideas.

The Winter will be here before long and with it comes the flu season - I'll have much more information on these topics for you in the not too distant future.

Until then, Happy Halloween!
