Young Child Recovers from Blindness and Glaucoma
(Minghui.org) I am a 59 year old Falun Dafa practitioner. My husband and I live together with my son, daughter-in-law, grandson, and granddaughter.
I recently returned to the path of cultivation. I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, but stopped due to fear when Jiang Zemin's regime began persecuting Dafa and its practitioners in 1999. Even though I could not let go of my fear and continue practicing, I remained convinced of its goodness.
My elderly aunt had also previously clarified the truth to our entire family, so they were all already aware that the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of Dafa was wrong.
Child’s Blindness Leads Me to See the Truth Again
My three-year-old grandson began to suffer from pain in his right eye in September 2016. Oral medication and eye drops from our local clinic had no effect. Within weeks our grandson’s eyeball had swollen to the point that it resembled a glass ball, and his previously black pupils had turned greenish white. The Tianjin Eye Hospital informed us that my grandson was blind in his right eye, with no cure available.
Unconvinced, my son sought a second opinion from a famous eye specialist at the Beijing Tongren Hospital. The expert diagnosed my grandson as having glaucoma, and confirmed that his eye right was permanently blind. This news stunned my son and daughter-in-law.
The doctor informed them that surgery was a treatment option, but only for temporary pain relief. He said his eyesight would never return, and he would need permanent treatments.
For my grandson’s entire time at the hospital, he required multiple doses of anesthesia in order to relieve his excruciating pain. I had heard adult glaucoma sufferers describe the intense pain they suffered post-surgery, and now this same pain was being inflicted on my three-year-old grandchild. I had never felt so helpless.
After surgery, in order to reduce the recurrence of swelling in his eye, the doctors instructed us not to let my grandson cry. Mindful of his advice, we cajoled and soothed my grandson in order to prevent him from crying. Despite our efforts, my grandson’s eye started swelling again after one week. He also began complaining of pain in his other eye.
This new development plunged our family into a state of panic. My son paced back and forth while my husband and I cried in despair. My husband desperately suggested, “I am already so old. Can they take my eyes and transplant them into our grandson?” My son informed us that such eye transplants were not possible using current medical science.
We were at a loss. Although continued surgery was an option, the first surgery had already cost us more than 30,000 yuan. Even if we were able to obtain that large sum of money, our grandson would have to undergo many painful procedures until he was 17 or 18 years old. Even then, there was no guarantee that the procedures could preserve his remaining eyesight.
At this point my husband said to me, “You had better resume practicing Falun Dafa again. We will beg Dafa’s founder Master Li to save our child, and the whole family will recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Desperate, our entire family began reciting those precious words with the sincerest of hearts. Still, there was no improvement after 20 days.
At my wits end, I consulted my older aunt who still practiced Falun Dafa. After listening to my story she said, “Reciting this phrase sincerely should definitely produce results. Could it be that your family uttered disrespectful words to Master and the Fa in the past?”
My husband and son admitted that they had, while my daughter-in-law was unable to recall if she had. My husband finally said, “It does not matter. Our whole family will write solemn statements to invalidate all previous actions and words that denounced Dafa.”
That night, my husband and I wrote solemn statements. My son and daughter-in-law were only able to produce their statements on the second day. To our indescribable joy, my grandson awoke on the morning of the third day with the swelling in his eye much reduced! Encouraged, the whole family continued reciting, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
Less than three weeks later, another unexpected miracle occurred. My grandson had been playing with his parents on their bed when suddenly he covered his good eye with his hand. My daughter-in-law teased him, “Can you see me?” Unexpectedly, my grandson shouted out happily, “I can see!” In disbelief, my daughter-in-law shifted around the room to test his eyesight. With each shift in her position, my grandson’s eye darted unerringly to follow her.
I burst into tears of happiness when I found out. I thanked Master for his compassionate salvation.
My grandson then told us, “Both of my eyes are alright.”
I realized that Master was using our grandson to inform us that his eyes had been completely healed and that Dafa is the righteous Fa. My grandson's pupils have now reverted back to their usual black color, and his right eye is completely back to normal. This is a miracle that cannot be explained using the concepts of modern medicine!
Falun Dafa’s Master is truly here to save sentient beings. I want to tell people around the world about the goodness of Falun Dafa. I also hope that those who remain deceived by the Chinese Communist Party's lies will learn the truth about Falun Dafa, quit the CCP, and obtain a good future.
