My daddy is my rock.
He has always been there for me to encourage me and inspire me to a better person in Christ. Growing up, my mom was always the one in the hospital due to her diabetes and dad was always strong for us kids. Then, last year when I was 16 he was having pain between his shoulder blades. He went to the doctor and the doctor sent him straight to the hospital for an angiogram. When they did the angiogram they couldn’t even get to his heart because all of his arteries were blocked. The doctor said if he had waited to go to the doctor one more week he wouldn’t even be here.
They did bypass surgery for the next Friday and they were in surgery for 8 hours and when they thought they where done his heart wouldn’t start. So they went back in and did one more bypass and saw that his aorta was shredding. They put a skin graph on his aorta and when they where done they had done five bypasses (which is the most you can do). The next day my dad had a code blue and his lungs and kidneys started shutting down. The doctors put him in a medical coma for three weeks and during those three weeks he had two code blues and they put in a pacemaker.
During this time I was angry at God for taking my dad from me and didn’t understand why He would do this. Then I listened to Jamie Grace’s song “Holding On” and it reminded me that God knew what He was doing and that He was holding on to my dad and I should hold on to what I believe. I should start believing that God can heal my dad and pull him out of this.
About a week before my dad woke up I gave my anger towards God and started believing that he could heal my dad. Now a full year later my dad is a lot healthier than he was a year ago. We found out that while he was in the hospital that all of the doctors and nurses where VERY skeptical that he was even going to live. So he was meticulously healed by God.
We’re so thankful we still have our dad to be such a great father and husband and we have only God to thank for that. Because of his story, his heart and his fight… we now like to call him “Miracle Man.”
