Unfortunately, due to a return of my CFS, I'm now sitting at home, instead of sunning myself in Las Vegas luxury. Two weeks in bed have improved my health, although the decision to cancel the trip (made a week ago) was definitely the right one. I was at least able to record my presentations for use by the conference organisers, so met my speaker agreement. Basically I got to do all the work without any of the fringe benefits. Obviously very disappointing, but I'm trying not to think of it as a missed opportunity, focusing instead on moving forward with repairing my health and planning my future work directions.
