    The first meeting of the Cleveland Myectomy Crew was held this evening! Jerry, Susan, Dawn, Tim and I all met tonight for a lesiurely dinner and had a terrific time swapping stories, information and getting to know one another. I hope that I can speak on behalf of the group and say it was a wonderful time! It was great being able to sit and talk face-to-face with others who have been going through the same type of situation. What a tremendous thing to be able to meet here in Cleveland during/before surgeries!

    While I was being checked out by Dr. Lever we told him that we were having dinner with others here that we had met via the HCMA; he was really impressed and even reccommended a dinner location for us!

    All the best,

    Thanks for sharing the picture with us. It is amazing what positive things can be accomplished through the power of the internet! I think it is fantastic that you folks were able to hook up with each other in Cleveland. Would be interesting to get a quick count of how many folks out there have developed friendships through the HCMA message board? Any body else out there care to share their stories?

    I Could not be happier to see the picture you have psoted on the web. We type so many words and sometimes I think it is so eary to loose hold of the faces attached to all the names.

    Good luck to all ...

    Lots of hugs and love!

    Lisa

    PS (to all) - While I know some of you are camer shy...I would love to set up a photo album page on the web site...send your digital pics to

    Good Morning,

    I have to agree with Lynn, it was a great night! I still hold on to some of my shyness from when I was younger, so I was very nervous to meet new people. I felt at easy within moments, they're such very nice people. We talked about HCM and myectomies. But also, kids, family, work, everything.

    I think it's helpful for all of us, even my mom. She felt better knowing she isn't the only one. This is so wonderful---and all because of hcma!

    Lisa, camera shy is right, I hate having my picture taken. Add the fact that I just quit smoking and have put on alot of weight....So if I can do it, any one can do it!

    We'll continue to update. I'll be at the hospital a little late. Need to do some real life stuff; grocery shop, back to school stuff, etc..

    Dawn
