On this Easter holiday, I can not help recalling the miracle that had happened to my friend -Emily six years ago.
Here is her story-
Emily practiced medicine in Southern California.
Her hobby was to ride the bike 5, 10 ..25 miles in her spare time.
So she is strong and healthy.
Nobody would have thought that someone as healthy as her, a doctor even,
would get a gallbladder infection all of a sudden.
Just moments earlier she was treating patients.
The next minute she was sent to Hospital.
Where another doctor had to save her.
Who is to know that the fierce battle between life and death
She fought and struggled many days in I.C.U.
She needed oxygen to sustain her life.
I could not help but cry when I visited her.
I thought back to when she fell to the ground from the top of a mountain a few years ago.
I could not help asking God, “Why?”
Her doctor was going to give up and remove her mechanical support.
Twice, he did not do it.
The first time, he thought he should give her a chance because she, too, is a doctor.
His heart told him not to do it the second time.
I knew his heart wanted him to wait for God’s healing miracle.
Surely, that night when the doctor did not take any action,
She had a dream,
In her dream, she saw a man praying for her under a tree.
He turned his head slightly when he finished his prayer.
She saw His face, and she believed that He was Jesus Christ.
Miraculously, her condition improved every day after her dream.
And she could finally leave the I.C.U.
A few days later she was discharged from the hospital.
That day was Easter Sunday!
It was indeed a miracle.
Upon discharge from the hospital, her doctor told her that her lung function would only maintain 60% all of her life. She told me that she gained back 100 % of her lung function when I visited her two months later.
