@jenblalock ….I considered going to the San Diego May conference but decided to be prudent….and not over do activities. We visit Marine son and his family in April near San Diego mid April….a real Schlep to fly there from Milwaukee since SW airlines stopped non stop flights .So to repeat it after a few week interval….not prudent
One question I have for the experts…..how is bronchiectasis diagnosed…..is CAT scan the only best way? And is that accurate?thanks tdrell

Thanks! We are moving this summer sometime and going back and forth between our current home and the new town plus having my daughter stay with us a week in May and maybe my sister so I hope I'm not overextending myself. They kindly gave me a scholarship to attend but that does not include airfare and it's a hike from Charleston, SC. I'm going to see if I can get a SW ticket so I can at least cancel if anything goes wrong or I just get too tired. I will keep a list of questions to ask.

Hi Tdrell, yes it is free. The scholarship pays for lodging.
