Reciting 'Falun Dafa Is Good,' 83-Year-Old Recovers from Broken Wrist in 16 Days (Photos)
(Minghui.org) When 83-year-old Ms. Liu (alias) fell at home on January 28, 2019, her right wrist hit the corner of a table. Her family took her to a nearby hospital, where an X-ray showed she had a complete fracture of the radius bone of the forearm close to the wrist, which is known as a colles fracture.
The doctor who read the X-ray told her, “Young patients with this injury must have surgery or the bones won't heal properly. Considering your age, surgery might be hard. So it is up to you and your family whether or not to have it.”
Worried, her family transferred her to the Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, a top tier public hospital renowned for its orthopedics department. The doctor suggested surgery.
Her son and other family members discussed it and, with her agreement, decided to opt for more conservative treatment. Instead of surgery, she had a simpler procedure advocated by traditional Chinese medicine in which the bones were re-aligned with external force. They then took her home.
When Ms. Liu went back for a follow-up exam on February 13, the doctor was stunned to see that her wrist had healed.
The doctor said that, due to osteoporosis in people her age, it was truly rare for her to heal within two weeks and very difficult even for someone much younger.
She and her family were happily surprised and considered it a wondrous blessing.
Ms. Liu has so far practiced Falun Dafa for over two months. She is unable to read or write, so she listens to Master Li's lectures every day. The more she listens, the more she wants to continue. While she was recovering, she recited, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and did not feel any pain. When she was asked what was on her mind when she fell and got up by herself, she said, “Master has said that practitioners have Master's protection and won't be hurt.”
Several practitioners came to visit her during that time. They studied the Falun Dafa teachings and practiced the exercises with her. She said, “It is Master's benevolence and strengthening that helped me heal in just 16 days.”
Her son also practices Dafa, and she has seen the kindness of practitioners through her son. She is sympathetic to what they have had to suffer due to the Chinese Communist Party's persecution.
She said, “Everyone should act according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and strive to purify their heart and mind. That way, one will become more and more appreciative of Dafa's benevolence and beauty.”
