Hi Bob,
I just wanted to thank you for all the help, info and support you provide through your blog and your comments on those of others.
Like you, I do not have PKD, but my husband and teenage daughter were both diagnosed within the past year.
My husband is 49 and recently started in the Tolvaptan study in NY. Thankfully, both he and my daughter are doing well and their lab work is all normal. (My daughter was diagnosed while having an MRI for an unrelated medical problem, and my husband was diagnosed several months later.)
Anyway, it gives me strength to see that you and your beautiful family are doing well and enjoying life.
Thanks again for reach, and help, more people than you realize.

Thanks for the kind words. I hope that things continue to go well for your family. I'm very interested in the Tolvaptan study. I'd very much welcome any updates you'd be willing to provide as the study moves forward.
