second day of the congress

new friends, latest news, inspiring words

rain

It was a great day at the confrence! The Scotland Confrence Center is an amazing large building and part of it is called the armadillo(looks like one). There is a good bit of walking in between sessions but there is aways a spot to rest. I was walking from one area to the next when Dystonia hit- my whole left side luckily there was a great pillar to lean against until it passed(did not want to walk backwards in front of everybody) I had benadryl but apparently i went pale so 2 very sweet ladies came up to me right away to check on my and stayed with me until I could walk again and yes they were from Scotland. i missed the breaking news announcment but was told it was about stem cells- a set back in resaerch apparently they develop into a gene like a Parkinson gene, definetly a step backwards. There is always hope and with the brillant Dr.s I have learned about and have had the priveledge of meeting will find cure, no doubt, any chance I get I thank them for working so hard.
I had the priviledge of attending a session about bringing the global community together to raise awareness and research for a cure. Parkinsons should be as well known as Aids and such be known about not something you learn about after you or somone you love gets Parkinsons. I agree, stores have pay a dollar to cure___ why not parkinsons?
I very much look forward to tomorrows sessions and being blessed with the opportunity to share about my quilt panels.
Sorry about pictures not being uploaded today-my camers has not been cooperative so gammi has been taking the pictures and we will upload her pictures tomorrow. It is now 9:40pm I should get some rest :) my cold has not gone away but better.
gammi and Katelyn have kept up on the sightseeing- they have seen thw William Wallace memorial, Dunne Castle lunch at the Willow tea room and a few other places I believe. Their day at the confrence with me is tomorrowm it will be fun. Friday we get the private tour of our clan-MacNaughton family castle then we are home :) yeah!!

I thank you for your following this journal on our trip and for your patience as I did not keep it up as well as I hoped. Much Love,
Sharon
