    I didn't post anything about the meeting before, but just wanted to add my thanks and congratulations for a wonderful, fantastic, stupendous meeting!! It was more than I ever expected Not only did I learn so much about HCM, but I got to meet so many wonderful people, too Lisa, just wanted to let you know, too that we'll be in Boston on August 13 for Alan's appointment with Dr. Maron. (You know, it wasn't until the meeting that he actually admitted to me that his symptoms were getting worse.) Anyway, hugs to all and again, THANKS

    It's a shame that I found HCMA and this board a few weeks to late as I would have loved to attend. Better late than never. I'm definitely going to try my best to attend next year.

    I couldn't agree more, Felix! You know us po' country folk don't always take a shine to those 'big city' docs right quick, but once my addled brain accelerated to match the speed at which things were being discussed, all has been fine. I couldn't be more pleased with the CCF folks! Surely my smooth, quick recovery from the myectomy speaks volumes as to the level of skill there

    How many other patients do you know that crave Pizza Hut almost immediately after leaving the ICU? LoL. Okay, maybe all that says is that i'm a pig... but nonetheless, i have never returned to my 'old self' quite so fast after a major surgery!

    Hi Amy,
    It was great to meet you at the meeting and learn about the grand stuff going on with the Cardiomyopathy Assoc. in the UK! When is your meeting? It would be loads of fun to find the time in my busy schedule and attend your meeting. I would love to showcase my video, "What is HCM?" for your members & doctors alike.

    Hope all is well and you had fun in CO, too.
    Best Regards,
    Sharon

    Lisa and all,

    The meeting was fab! I just got back a few days ago. It was well worth the trip across the Atlantic. I learned loads, and we will likely steal a few of you ideas for our meeting.


    Regards,
    Amy

    I made it back to Arizona after a long weekend in New Jersey...wow! it is sure hot here. Don't get me wrong, I like the heat, it's just a big difference from NJ weather.

    Thanks again to everyone infront of and behind the scenes at the HCMA Annual Meeting.

    You are all angels on earth and make our Lisa look so great! Keep up the great work you guys and you know you can count on me and many others for our continued support in the future.

    A special thanks to you Lisa! Without your drive and enthusiasm we would be "rutterless" and have less direction. Keep us going forward and you know I would follow you anywhere.

    Blessings,
    Sharon

    oh, thanks Reenie....I know you were there but could not remember what you looked like (from last year's conference). I will download a few pics from the conference (I think there are a couple of Lisa and me) , but I don't know of an easy way to post the picture in an avatar...??

    If Jim ever gets around to reading this, I was the guilty party.
    Actually, Lisa misquoted me. I said "Representing the message board, I want to tell Dr. Lever that we love Jim and are glad he is in his care".
    Knowing that Jim was not 100% happy with all the decisions that had been made last week, I wanted to tell Dr. Lever that Jim was someone we cared about in a diplomatic way.
    Jim, I will say that now that I've met with Dr. Lever and heard what he had to say, I am VERY impressed with the man. He is a solid straight shooter who doesn't pull any punches. You are in good hands.
