I was in Salford Royal (Hope Hospital) for 10 days in April '11 until Easter Sunday.. yet again!! For some reason its usually pre Easter or pre Xmas I end up in hosp. But I can't complain, its good to know that when needed I'm in quick and getting sorted.
Prof Herrick and all her team must be commended for their work regarding Raynaud's and Scleroderma. They all do a brilliant job with patient care and research of these complex diseases and have helped me enormously over the years.
Dr McKenna, and his team at Trafford GeneraI first diagnosed me 18yrs ago and whom I'm very fortunate to also have as my consultant. They are always there for me whenever I need to see someone urgently hence I am always more than willing to volunteer to help in their studies, trials and with student training and examinations.
I have to mention too the fantastic care as an in-patient I have received over the years from both hospitals where the staff are all very understanding and make these regular stays so much easier to endure.
Also a big thankyou to Anne Mawdsley and all at the RSA for their work raising funds for research and the associations regular newsletters with lots of info, tips, and stories. Although a lot more research and public awareness is needed for these terrible conditions hopefully one day there will be a cure. Till then.. Everyone take care, keep warm and 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' !!! x
