UCSF unveils model for implantable artificial kidney to replace dialysis

With Jeanne now on dialysis, I found this article especially interesting. If they can actually get something like this to work some day, it would be a huge benefit to those in end-stage renal failure.

The technology is really amazing, isn't it? I hope Jeanne is tolerating dialysis well. My thoughts are with you.

I am hosting a virtual auction at www.lemonade-and-kidneys.blogspot.com with all proceeds going to the PKD Foundation -- we're running from today through October 6 with a rotating list of items for auction. Any additional publicity would be terrific!

Best,

Ruth

Bob thanks for your comment on my blog and believe me, still working!

My heart goes out to you and your family, never an easy thing to assimilate or deal with. Hope Jeanne is doing well on dialysis and remember people are working hard to help your wife and children.
