I was diagnosed with PKD at 37 (now 54) and at that time I thought life was over. I dreaded the thought of eventually going on dialysis, not working and not maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Through the support of my wife and kids I discovered life was not over. Over the years my function continue to slowly decline to the point a year ago Feb I had a major setback which dropped my function from 27% to ~15%. At that point my wife stepped up and gave me this wonderful gift, one of her kidneys. I thank God for her and being a match. This brings me today, 1 week post transplant. Thanks, Rob
