Is there hope for this Meyer lemon tree?

My friend was going to throw this Meyer lemon tree out a few months ago so I took it to try and save it from the dumpster. The soil was super compacted and it had a few leaves and one small green fruit. Since then it has lost both. The roots look fine to me, but I'm no expert. I realized the potting soil I had it in wasn't draining properly so I'm going to repot it with Al's 5-1-1 mix. The tips of some branches are starting to brown so I trimmed them back a little. Is this lemon tree past saving?
