The Santa Clausification of Christmas

November 27, 2018  |  READ TIME: 4 minutes | By Jim Denison   DONATE   I need to begin with a disclaimer: I am a fan of Santa Claus.

The day before we left for preteen camp I took my son Tristan in for his 12 year well child visit.  During this visit his pediatrician wanted to do an EKG. Now, he does not have any previous heart issues, but because he is an athlete they are doing proactive EKG’s on kids starting at 12.  I did not give it another thought until I got a phone call from the pediatrician two days later, and this EKG would become the Giant I needed to slay.
