My Gratitude List

by Rev. Margaret Aranda, MD, Ph.D.


Background: Keck School of Medicine at USC Graduate, Stanford-trained in Anesthesiology and Critical Care, Doctorate in Forensic Medicine. In 2006, was in a tragic car accident that left me bed-bound with a traumatic brain injury and dysautonomia, for the majority of the last 9 years. Then a doctor dropped me to the floor during a neurologic exam in 2015, giving me another traumatic brain injury. I keep pressing on.



My Gratitude List

1. That I went to the door of Heaven during a Near-Death Experience, and was allowed to receive my request to come back to earth;

2. That I have faith that my symptoms, with God's help, shall improve with time;

3. That I know how to love;

4. That I am grateful for opening my eyes every morning;

5. That I thank God for another day, each and every day;

6. That I don't have to live with a continuous iv any more;

7. That I can still be a Mommy, a teacher, and a Reverend.

8. That I know how to count my blessings; today, that is enough for me.
