This is the NIH where I see my doctors. Travis’ intro, take three. I’m Travis, I’m ten years old and I’m
going to show you how fun it is to be at the Clinical Center. We’re heading to building 10. I have for an MRI then later today I have
a family meeting. Hi, I’m Kelly, I’m here to check in. Hey Travis. Hey. I’m Teresa, I’m going to be taking you
to get your vitals ok? Ok. Every time when I come here I get my vitals
taken. Sir, I’m here to give you a ticket. One ticket is going to be because you are
brave. I made a lot of friends here. You don’t have to be scared because the
doctors are really nice. So, welcome back. How is Travis doing? He’s doing good. I’m loving it. He’s feeling good and moving around good. Arms up. Don’t let me push them down. Down. Very good. Push and pull. You’re all done. Yay! You did great! Thanks! High-five! Give me a hug. These are some of the people that take care
of me when I’m at the clinical center. Usually I just hang out sometimes and usually
my mom’s doing all the talking. You’re right, mom does a lot of the thinking
and talking and taking notes. Yeah. Yeah. You need help? There you go. Excellent. Oh hi Travis. Hello. Welcome to the patient library. Thank you. Glad you found something that you like. There you go.
