Thank each and everyone so much for all of your suggestions and most of all you kindness and thoughtfulness. It has already helped. I’ve never known anyone with serious kidney disease and I am so grateful to read each of your comments. I am also extremely grateful to have gotten an appointment at Mayo. The earliest appointment was in Minnesota. I live in NYC but know this is the best thing I could be doing for myself. I look forward to staying involved with the group and hopefully at some point being able to give support and encouragement to others.
