Thanks John for keeping us informed. I would love to go but Australia is just too far! If yourself or anyone else does make it I (and I'm sure everyone else would love to read your notes or summary.

Just out of curiosity. On one of my previous hospital admissions I shared the ward with a lady with Churg Strauss disease - what would be the odds of that - two people with extremely rare diseases put into the same ward? On typing that maybe the hospital has a rare diseases ward?
