Let's Play EKG!!!

We've made two successful trips to Stanford so far and we have three more to go.  Sam actually enjoys these hospital visits because he gets to see his other friends with cystinosis.  Every time we go he has an EKG at the children's hospital, which makes him a little nervous.  Luckily, Sam's friend, Hank Sturgis, is a great pal and helps Sam be brave.  We've been practicing at home too. 

Baby dog, a.k.a. Annie, gets to do everything Sam does.

Sam gives kind words of encouragement and kisses to Annie

Sam's last two EKGs have come back abnormal so a cardiologist at Stanford recommended he have an echocardiogram this month.  He'll be sedated so we don't have to prep him for this procedure but we will for his IV.
