Re: [IPp] Matthews Endo Appt



Dear Sarah,
Congratulations on the alcs!  Where you jumping up and down and doing the
high five thing like we did with the 6.9?
Thank you for the kind words.  It was a pleasure meeting you , your children
and your mom.  You have an incredible family (and Jessy is still talking
about Victoria)  The conference was, in Jessy's words, "Better than
expected"  I was so impressed with all of those doctors and wasn't it just
so cool that we got to eat lunch with 2 of the transplant recipients?
Cindy
