My Miraculous Recovery After Being in a Coma for Forty Days
(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Gong practitioner from Liaoning Province, China, and I would like to share a personal story about the extraordinary power of Dafa. About seven years ago, I had been involved in a very serious motorcycle accident that had left me in a coma for 40 days.
After a doctor told my family members that I had suffered traumatic brainstem damage, he asked them to prepare for my funeral. However, my wife, who is also a practitioner, refused to give up hope. Instead, she played Master Li's (the founder of Falun Gong) audio lectures for me from morning until night. On day 41, I miraculously came out of my coma and shortly thereafter, I fully recovered.
My wife, daughter, and I were riding home from my sister-in-law’s house on our motorcycle in August 2007. Somehow I lost control, and the motorbike flipped over. Both my wife and child escaped injury but I laid motionless on the ground. When my wife saw my condition, she became very worried. She ran the rest of the way home to ask our relatives to take me to the local hospital.
When the doctors saw my condition, they immediately transferred me to the county hospital. After a doctor from the county hospital checked my condition, he exclaimed, “We'd better hurry up and transfer him to the city hospital!”
The doctors at the city hospital performed a CAT scan on me and then told my family that I had suffered severe brainstem damage. Although I was hospitalized for 11 days, my condition only worsened. My relatives frantically searched for a specialist who would better be able to assist me, but they could not find one.
Every doctor's prognosis was basically the same: even if the treatment was a success, I would remain in a vegetative state for the rest of my life, and if the treatment failed, then I would die and my family would be financially bankrupt.
However, my relatives were not willing to give up so easily and managed, with great effort, to have me transferred to the Shenyang Hospital where I stayed in a coma for eight days. As my condition worsened, I began to develop a very high fever. A team of surgeons drilled two holes into my skull to help drain the excess buildup of fluid around my brain. At that point, the doctors told my brother-in-law to wait at home for the impending bad news.
My wife lost hope in the Chinese medical establishment, and being a practitioner, her righteous thoughts became stronger and stronger. A few days later, she called her brother-in-law and told him: “Please bring my husband back home. I now realize that only Master Li can save him!”
After arriving home, my wife played the audio recordings of Master's lectures everyday, even though I was still unconscious. On day 40 of my coma, I recall seeing my main consciousness being chained and dragged down into pitch-black darkness, by two spirits from hell. Suddenly, a saw a gigantic Buddha dressed in a yellow robe, looking at me from inside a ray of golden shinning light. He reached out his hand and compassionately held me in his huge palm. I later realized that the Buddha image was Master Li.
At that moment, I recall coming out of my coma. My wife started to read Dafa books to me and taught me to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
When she wasn't reading to me, I listened to Master's audio recordings. My physical body underwent tremendous changes during this time period. When I was able to sit up, my wife encouraged me to do the Dafa meditation exercise. When I was able to stand up, my wife did the four standing exercises with me.
Gradually, I started to walk and do some household chores. Not long after, I was able to work in the fields and even started driving my tractor again!
I know that it was compassionate Master Li Hongzhi who saved my life. There are no words in the human language that can express my gratitude to Master. From the moment I started writing this article, I had tears streaming down my face.
In the remaining time ahead, I will do the three things well and strive forward diligently!
