About Lily


Hi Friends!

I am pleased that you stumbled upon my little corner of the interweb. One Day at a Time was created to share my kidney life journey.  This life journey has had many highs and lows, and I have learned so many things that I want to share with you.  If you join me on this journey, I hope to use what I have learned to encourage you. 


I grew up and graduated from high school in a small agricultural town in the Central Valley of California. Soon after that, I moved out of town and tried my hand at university life on the Central Coast. I spent a total of 8 years on the Coast; 4 years of that was before my life on dialysis began. When treatment became difficult, it became clear that moving back home close to family was better for me.  Through all the good and bad of school, work, and health issues, I got married and settled down back in the good ole' Central Valley. As of Sept 5th, 2020, I because a kidney transplant recipient and no longer a dialysis patient. Praise God!

Brief facts about me:

I enjoy learning, reading, and trying new hobbies.  

  • Photography

  • Crocheting

  • Sewing

  • Calligraphy

  • Painting


It doesn't mean I am great at any of them, but I enjoy them.
