[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Dafa Saved My Premature Twin Grandsons
(Minghui.org) My daughter was pregnant with twins in the summer of 2019. When she had her 22-week physical exam, her doctor found a problem in her uterus and said she faced the risk of miscarriage.
She was prescribed bed rest. When she went in for another exam a week later, the fetuses had dropped in her uterus even lower. She was hospitalized and had surgery on her uterus immediately. Even so, the doctor said she could at most keep the babies in her uterus for two more weeks, and she still faced a high risk of delivering the babies prematurely. We were all very nervous every single day.
My mother and my two older sisters are all Dafa practitioners. They told me and my daughter to sincerely recite the auspicious phrases, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” My eldest sister also gave my daughter some Dafa music to listen to, hoping the positive energy from the music would help her. I started reciting the phrases while my daughter was in the hospital.
After my daughter bed-rested for a month, on October 19, 2019, she was having intense contractions and the doctor said she would have to deliver the babies that day. It was only at 28 weeks, 14 weeks earlier than her due date.
When my daughter was pushed into the delivery room, the doctor asked, “The twins are at 28 weeks. After they are born, if they can't breathe, would the family like us to resuscitate them?”
My son-in-law said “no” without even thinking because the babies would be too little, fragile, and severely underdeveloped. He made the decision based on both emotional and financial reasons. However, when thinking about the two little lives that were about to come to this world, I could not accept the reality of not saving them.
The babies were born. The doctor said the delivery was successful. The babies had their first cries after birth, an indicator that the babies were healthy and could breathe normally. So it would be worth rescuing them.
However, my son-in-law and my husband both insisted on not saving them, given the huge risks of medical problems or even disabilities, as well as the financial burden.
Looking at those two little lives, I was about to collapse. I called my eldest sister for help. She said, “The twins are precious lives. How could you not save them?” She also called my husband, “The twins have the right to survive. You have to save them!”
The doctor came in and told us that my daughter wanted to save the twins, too. So the twins were taken to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Just then, my two sisters came to visit. They also told my husband to sincerely recite the two auspicious phrases, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They asked us to believe in the power of Dafa.
The next issue was money. The cost on the first day for one child was 14,000 yuan. My son-in-law did not come from a rich family. My family was not affluent either. The expenses would be a huge burden for my daughter and son-in-law. However, my two sisters, my mother, my brother, and many other friends and families all supported us and helped us solve the money issue.
After the twins were in the NICU, I recited the two auspicious phrases every day and asked Master to help save them. On the 32nd day, the doctor called my son-in-law very early in the morning because both the twins had severe lung infections, anemia, and kidney failure. The doctor asked the family to prepare themselves for the worst.
I could not sleep that night. The next morning, I called my sisters and my mother and asked them to help. My eldest sister said, “Even if we have millions of yuan to give the doctors, they would not be able to guarantee anything. Money cannot buy health. The only way to save the twins is Dafa. Dafa will create miracles as long as you believe in it.” I made up my mind to continue to recite the phrases every day.
We were not allowed to visit the NICU. We could only deliver necessities in the afternoons on Tuesdays and Fridays. I would usually use those few minutes to look at the twins through the window from outside and recite the phrases silently in my heart. I was hoping all the little lives, including my two grandsons in the NICU, could feel the prayer for them from my heart. During those days, my mother, my sisters, and my daughter all recited the phrases, hoping for a miracle.
A miracle indeed happened! On the 69th day, the older twin came out of the NICU and was released from the hospital on the 73rd day. The younger one was moved out of NICU on the 78th day and released from the hospital on the 87th day.
The older twin had a hernia. The doctor asked us to monitor it because it might require surgery. The younger one had bowel issues. Due to the pandemic, we could not get the twins the recommended treatment. My sisters asked me to play Master’s lectures to the twins. So my daughter followed their suggestions.
During the twins’ most recent physical check-up in late March 2020, they were perfectly normal and healthy! This is a miracle created by Dafa. It makes the impossible a reality. I would like to thank Master from the bottom of my heart for saving the twins’ lives. I would like to tell everyone: "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!"
