Final day today - it has been a most interesting an exciting few days. So much research happening all over the world but especially here in the UK. Met some really interesting doctors too. John will be giving some feed back at the Vasculitis East Midlands Support group meeting and the AGM. We are hoping to produce a special conference/symposium edition of the newsletter too.

The stamina is waning a little but it has certainly been full on since Friday evening. ☺️

The conference sounded very interesting. I would be delighted to have a newsletter about the special conference/symposium. I was very disappointed that I was unable to attend. So any feedback would be very welcome.

Thank you for all your hard work.

I had paid no attention to the conference/symposium posts until I tried to get hold of my consultant and found she was away until tomorrow ... then I realised where she was (don't think there's an emoticon for 'numpty')!!! :P

Really wished I could have attended this but with my energy levels where they are at present, it wasn't possible. 😔. Looking forward to hearing all about it though! Well done John & Sue for being there to represent all of us that couldn't make it. 👍
