When Life Gives You Lemons

There are days when I awaken feeling immensely grateful. I survived two strokes, sky high blood pressure, seventeen months on dialysis three times a week. There are times when I could pinch myself to make sure that I’m not dreaming, thinking back to last April when I left the hospital in a wheelchair, graduated to a walker within three months, and now seventeen months later, a cane.
