These guys are standing here excitedly discussing how to measure YOUR rbc's in a hand held disposable Microfluidic device. They are so awesome. And excited about figuring this out & helping you get better! I'm so moved. At 6 pm. After being here since 8. they're hungry. #MECFS18 image.jpeg

@Janet Dafoe (Rose49)- These pictures of the whole group that you have posted bring tears to my eyes (literally) as I see all the phenomenal intellectual talent that Ron has collected to help all of us. I can never express my gratitude enough. BIG thank you to all of them!! I would send hugs too, but being that a lot of them are engineering types, they wouldn't appreciate them. :woot:

This is the moment.

You are changing the course of history.

After so many years of neglect and aversion to this disease, it’s incredibly heart-warming to see that so many outstanding scientists care! I just can’t believe it, it’s like a dream that finally comes to life. You have no idea how happy you make me!

Good morning! Whitney needed me in the night. Seeing his suffering brought me directly back to the reason we are all here. ❤️ #mecfs18
Thank you for doing this for all of our children :heart: Seeing all these scientists brings hope where there is usually only suffering.

I hope Whitney is alright now, as alright as he can be.

I talked before break. Whitney woke me up last night needing me. When I finished helping him I tried to pantomime about what his dad is doing & the conference. He finally caught on. Then he made motions referring to scientists & doctors coming from all around th world. He wanted me to thank them. Prayer hands and heart sign. I shared this with the group in silence. Moving moment. #mecfs18
