A 78-year-old Man Recovers from the Brink of Death, His Family Starts Practicing Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) A 78-year-old man lives in Tuqiao Town, Yushu City in Jilin Province. In November of 2009, he had a sudden stroke. His sons and daughters sent him immediately to the Second Hospital of Jilin University. During hospitalization, the doctors determined that he had also reached a late stage of lung cancer.
His condition hadn't improved after 10 days of medical treatment, but was actually getting worse. He was unable to move the left side of his body, had a high fever, loss of consciousness, incontinence, and other symptoms. Doctors indicated that there was nothing they could do to help him, so his children took him back home. A month later, his condition worsened; he could not sleep through the night and became very irritable, hot-tempered, and began to hit and curse at others. He was unable to recognize even his family. The family was very sad, and felt that the old man had reached the end of his life.
The family was extremely frustrated. A practitioner learned about their situation, and visited the man's home on December 26. Although the practitioner didn't know him, the old man seemed to know that the practitioner could help him. He struggled to get up from his wheelchair, and tried to shake hands with the practitioner. His behavior surprised the family.
The practitioner clarified the truth and explained the greatness of Falun Gong to them. Then, he asked the old man to recite, "Falun Dafa is good," and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." The practitioner also gave them a Shen Yun Performing Arts DVD.
After the new year, the practitioner played Pu Du and Ji Shi (Falun Gong music) for him. The elderly man said that he felt comfortable while listening to the music. Because he was not clear-minded, his spouse and children all taught and reminded him to sincerely recite "Falun Dafa is good," and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good."
Two weeks later, his condition had clearly improved. His family was very happy and thanked the practitioner again and again. The practitioner told them to thank the compassionate Teacher, since it was truly Teacher who had saved them.
The practitioner visited the man's home for the third time, and brought the "Teaching the Fa at Dalian" lecture series. He explained that Falun Dafa was meant for saving people. Since they witnessed the miracle of Dafa and felt Teacher's compassion, the elderly man, his spouse and their eldest daughter all decided to practice Falun Gong.
On the second day, they began listening to the "Teaching the Fa at Dalian" recording, one lecture a day. Later, the practitioner visited their home several more times to show them how to do the five sets of exercises.
In January of 2010, just before the Chinese New Year, the elderly man removed the catheter, bid farewell to the wheelchair and walked on his own. Whenever his spouse and daughter prepared to do the exercises, he would arrive early, waiting for them to start. Listening to the music, he tried his best to do the exercises. He even said that he would help his wife do household chores after a few days.
Learning that I would write his story, the elderly man reminded me repeatedly to thank Teacher for compassionately saving him. His spouse and daughter also take pride in becoming practitioners. They said that they would tell people about Falun Gong, and they also thank Teacher.
