any adults with arpkd doing okay?

My 3 month old son was born with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. He is doing okay at the moment. I try to find stuff online but it is all so grim. Are there any adults with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease who are doing okay? I need a little ray of hope on days I succumb to sadness.
