    How many of you were able to watch the 2018 Open Medicine Foundation symposium live or on YouTube? What did you think? I was hoping to get other's perspectives, good or bad about the symposium. Cort, do you have anything to report? Were you able to attend any of the closed sessions? I hope you are doing okay. Must have been a stressful week for you to keep up with it all.

    I'm about 1/3 of the way into it. I'll watch more later. Very exciting stuff! I like the portable device idea, I hope that works out.

    Some years ago, a naturopath's blood work tech told me my RBCs were "sticky" and I've wondered since then why some symptoms I have are reminiscent of sickle cell anemia (a deadly deformation of RBCs), except I don't have the genetics. The lack of RBC deformation is an interesting insight. He didn't mention the spleen status. I have intermittent spleen pain, but I do have my spleen. Modern medicine treats the spleen as disposable and I don't think so, so I haven't complained much about it. Anyway the spleen is supposed to filter out the stiff RBCs. So theoretically only people without a spleen should ever have stiff RBCs.
