Lying on the operating table at 2 a.m., I watched as my doctor injected me with a pale yellow solution from a huge syringe. I was both fearful and hopeful. Complications and side effects worried me, but this procedure might save my life. The disease? Type 1 diabetes! The procedure? An islet transplant from a donor pancreas. The procedure is known as the Edmonton Protocol. This was a revolutionary development in the field of diabetes care, and I was a part of it! It was exhilarating to participate in research that has the potential to affect the lives of millions of people with diabetes. Success with this procedure could lead to the long awaited cure for diabetes. This book tells the extraordinary story of what led to my decision to participate in this research study, the multiple tests required to become eligible, the islet transplant, and the dramatic difference this has made in my life and to my family and friends.
