I'm just starting the process for a simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant. I've had type-1 diabetes for 32 years and now, in only a few months, my kidneys have given out. So I'm pre-dialysis but have started the process for new organs. Would love to talk to people who are in the same boat or have been here before. My wife and I have a blog too: Branden

Hi Branden, Kristi and I exchanged one email about the blog. Welcome to this group. (To be honest, it is not very incredibly active, but the questions and thoughts and ideas are genuine. Maybe you can stir up more interest in this group. While I don't really want to encourage cross-posting, a lot of renal failure patients with tye I also post on the Kidney Disorders group. So you might want to glance at that one now and then to see what applies to your case.) Keep in touch, both of you. This business affect the entire family as much as the patient. John
