Hi Everyone

Well the big day has arrived at long last Zephyr and I met !! Yippee. She's such a wonderful person. These past 10 months of writing to one another has really bonded us. Having another 'soul mate' sis who is LTNP is really quite indescribable.
Today was great. Minh (bless his sweet heart) picked me up at my hotel and off we three went to the NIH. He knows his way around pretty well and took us right up to the clinic and then off he went to a full day of teaching. Zephyr and I caught up on stuff, talked to Dr's. had a basic blood draw and physical. Zephy had some other tests but she'll want to tell you all about it.
It's been such a lovely day with Zephie, ah.... Tonight Zeph, Minh and I are going to a Vietnamese restaurant.
Gotta go, dinner plans are ready to roll. I'll check in later. Tomarrow is the Big day of the apherisis and I'll see one of the main researchers.

Peace and Love

Paul, dear....

We're just a few miles away from you tonight, and hope you have a restful night's sleep!  I know my life is better for having you in it, and I have cherished every minute that we've spent together these past few days.

Aren't we fortunate to have such a family as this one, on AM, to support us from near and far?

See you in a few hours, my friend!
