It was four years ago today when my Mom Joanna McCray started on a new journey that has changed her life. This was the day she started her first dialysis treatment. My mother suffers from Kidney failure and is on the transplant list at Duke University and we are trying now for MUSC -Charleston. This has been a very difficult journey for us both. As her only son, it has been trying at times to be her only caregiver while seeing her go through so much. I was raised by her mother, my grandmother, and so my mother and I kind of came-up as siblings. However, this journey has brought us both closer together. The trips back and forth to doctor appointments have changed the dynamics of our relationship to being truly a mother and son. I am so PROUD of her for doing everything right to maintain her health. Even her dialysis center says she is a model patient and uses her story as an example to others. I know she will be blessed soon with a kidney donor as my insides smile now seeing her walk this journey with full determination to be the best she can be. Love ya Mom, you are THE BEST!
