Amazing Recovery Following Amputation and Lung Failure
(Minghui.org) I began to experience medical problems in 2019 that later proved to be life threatening. The big toe of one foot became swollen and developed a small blister. The blister burst and the drainage appeared infected. My children helped me clean the infected wound every day.
I have practiced Falun Dafa for more than twenty years, so I did not think much about this problem with my toe, and continued doing the three things as usual.
One day in November 2019, I suddenly lost control of my legs while at the marketplace. My legs were too weak to walk. A kind passerby helped me to contact my children to take me home.
After looking closely at my toe we saw that the tissue beneath the blister had decomposed all the way down to the bone. My children immediately took me to the hospital for evaluation and treatment.
It was a complication of diabetes according to the attending physician. As a result, two of my toes were amputated. However, the festering infection still spread to the middle of the foot. The doctor advised a below the knee amputation of my leg, but I refused.
My condition got worse and I was moved to the intensive care unit. The doctor then informed me that two thirds of my lung had failed, and those who would like to see me for the last time should be contacted.
Practitioners came to visit me in the hospital. They reminded me to ask Master for help and to keep reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
I was in the ICU for eight days. Bedridden, I did not sleep for eight days and continued reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” My vital signs soon returned to normal.
After transfer from the ICU, I wanted to go home to study the Fa and send forth righteous thoughts with other practitioners, but the attending physician would only discharge me after all of my lab results returned to normal.
At that time, the wound on the bottom of my foot was quite large. I threw up when I tried to eat any food, and my blood sugar and blood pressure were high.
More tests were needed before I could go home. I reminded myself that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner and that there was nothing wrong with my stomach, and my blood sugar and blood pressure were all normal. In the end, all tests results came back normal. I was then discharged on December 17, 2019.
Still unable to eat, I threw up when I tried to swallow. I told myself that Master never told me not to eat, so I would continue eating. I kept on trying to eat even when I could not keep food down. My condition improved on the second day after being discharged home, and by the third day, I was able to eat.
There were many amazing moments when other practitioners and I got together for group study. For example, the CD player started playing music without us turning it on when it was time for us to send forth righteous thoughts, and one practitioner saw the image of five Buddhas when five other practitioners were sending forth righteous thoughts together.
Once I was able to eat again, the wound on my foot improved quickly. The doctor thought it was a miracle, as he knew I was a Falun Dafa practitioner, and knew the truth behind the persecution of the practice in China.
My children sent a photo of my foot to the doctor every other day. He said the flesh grew back so fast that I could get a skin graft soon. Before I was discharged from the hospital, that same doctor had declared I would most likely return in a few days in need of further amputation. Not only did the flesh grow back, the skin on the bottom of my foot totally rejuvenated.
This entire time, my heart was never moved no matter what my family and doctor said to me. In a dream, I was prompted to write down my experience to share with others. I also thought it was something I should do.
From being discharged from the hospital with a large hole in the bottom of my foot to November 7, 2020 when I wrote this sharing article, almost a full year, I had grown a new sole without taking any medication at home.
By looking within myself, studying the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts, and talking with other practitioners, it became clear how interference had occurred during my cultivation practice. I felt that the interference came primarily from other dimensions. I often heard words spoken to me but could not tell whether it was interference or hints from Master Li. Many times I took them as Master’s words, and as a result, I was misguided. After realizing that, I no longer believed that everything I heard came from Master.
I want to thank Master for giving me a second chance in life. The only way I can repay Master’s compassion is to be a more diligent practitioner.
