    I wonder if it's because Cheney's patients more closely match the original Science cohort?

    What a rollercoaster this all is!

    On the other hand, my "Cheney patient friend" is still "pending," and she tells me that other Cheney patients are also pending. My friend was really, really sick, for a very long time--she had pretty much the whole gamut of symptoms. But,...she was tested after stem cell treatment and that might make the test harder to read.

    I'm looking foreward to the Mikovits talk. I'm really looking foreward to news of one of the replication attempts which the WPI has been helping with. There seem to have been a few more positive sounding things today. It's silly to get caught up in the roller-coaster of it all, but it's hard not to give these scraps of news a misplaced importance.

    That's interesting, Sushi. It will be interesting to know how she tests. Please keep us updated if you can.

    Take care,
