I have sent a few your way who you've met with before your 'pause' and thank you so much for staying in touch with us patients. I was an early Stanford stentee that is doing well, but I copied and pasted your last passage to 3 of my friends who have appointments with you in the coming months (John from Binghamptom I think you met and two others). Thank you for being you and having that spirit that you have. When I picture a Dr. in my mind's eye, I now see Dr. Sal. Your last sentence about taking Kennedy's speeches to heart kind of says it all.

I was trying to entice him to think about how we can test for ccsvi during childhood before the upstream effects become manifest. afterall, the ultimate treatment would be to genetically re-engineer the DNA to NOT form malformed veins.
The first thing to do i s to figure out a way to identify children and families of young ones. try to proactively find those people before their disease becomes manifest.
He was skeptical but curious about what is currently known, and he immediately was thinking about ways to address the question.
That is why I love academic medicine

I think you have found yourself in an unusual position...at the right place at the right time with the right skills and quite obviously the right heart...
