So we found out why Stoic Sam is so stoic: he's got a critical aortic valve stenosis. He went to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City for some digital imaging and they admitted him as a patient. So he's had his first overnight in a different state.
Tuesday he's going to have balloon valvuloplasty. So many big words! So anyway, if you're wondering why Persephone's blog is growing stale, it's because she's spending most of her time in Kansas City now.
