Celebrating Recovery October 30, 2014 by Gloria On October 30, 2013, on my way to work, @ 5:30 am, I was involved in a head on collision. A pickup truck lost control and came in my lane sliding sideways , I had nowhere to go, hitting them head on. I remember both my legs feeling like they were literally on fire. I began calling out to God asking for relief. . I was flown by Life Flight to Memorial Herman. All during the day as the doctors continued to examine me, they kept commenting to my family there was no medical reason why I was still alive! God said not today, my child, you still have work to do. I had 5 surgeries in the first 4 days, I lost my right leg, severe compound fracture on left leg, fractured sternum, 8 fractured ribs, 2 displaced ribs, internal bleeding, fractured C2 vertebrae (this alone should have caused death or paralyzing from neck down) From my car Before the ambulance arrived I made 3 phone calls! One of those to my pastor asking for prayer….that was my 911 call because I knew I would need lots of prayers, That started a chain reaction. Someone posted on Facebook and that exploded across the nation. Some also called KSBJ for prayer. I was being well prayed for. Doctors explained every surgery was a life threatening surgery because of the C2 vertebrae fracture. My family was informed my stay in the hospital would be long, at least 4 weeks in Intensive Care Shock Trauma Unit and 3 months in the hospital. Well God had other plans. I was in intensive care 4 days and hospital 20 days total!!! There was a nurse from a completely different hospital who had heard about the miracle from someone on KSBJ. It has been a year now. I have gone through lots of therapy and two additional surgeries but I am exactly where God wants me to be. I have a new prosthetic and am walking with a walker. No matter what a person is going through, prayer works and having faith knowing nothing is too big for God!! I don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t know God and have Him in my life. I truly believe God is the ultimate healer. Thank you to everyone who prayed for me that day and to those who have continued to pray for me throughout the year. I serve a mighty God and He is Good all the time!
