This is for John and anyone else who remembers Branden from about 8 months ago. At the time, Branden had type 1 diabetes for over 32 years and his kidney had failed suddenly. I just received an email from his wife Kristi that he is undergoing the surgery for his simultaneous kidney/pancreas transplant.

They had a number of false starts and were the backup for a number of transplants so they were ready for this. I'm sure we all wish them the best.

It's great news. I hope that everything goes well.

My transplant has given me the best 10 years of my life (though I'm going through a few mid- to longer-term side effects right now.)

All the best to the whole family.
