I have written so many essays, and to be honest as I was staring at my blank sheet on my computer, I had no Idea what to write about, so I decided to write about something closer to home, miracles. You would be surprised to hear how many people don’t believe in miracles, but I am not one of those people. During 2020, my uncle had covid, pancreatitis, and double pneumonia. It took a huge toll on his body. Shortly after he was brought into the ICU at hospital, they told him his liver, kidneys, and pancreas were failing. The also said he had a blood infection. They didn’t believe he would live, they told us he was the sickest person in the hospital, and this was at KU medical center. They said if by some miracle he did live, he would be in a nursing home for the rest of his life. None of you probably know my uncle, but he is one of the strongest, bravest, funniest men I know. He is full of joy, and goofiness, he would hate to be in that state. So, on Thursday, the 21 of January, my family and I rushed to Kansas, from Texas, to say our goodbyes. They said he probably, wouldn’t even make it through the weekend. My family was planning on pulling the plug on Saturday to end his suffering, but when they went to do it, they saw that a number was looking astronomically better, so they decided to hold off for a day. They told us he was still critical, but they didn’t want to take any chances. He made it to his birthday, which was that Monday, and turned 50. From there things continued to get better. Today is January 29 and he is still alive and fighting. Yesterday they took out all of his tubes and he is now talking and sitting on the side of his bed. And his future no longer holds the pain and misery of living in a nursing home. It brought his doctors to tears.
God provides us these Miracles, so we will never lose sight of His love and glory. So yes, I can say will one hundred percent certainty, that miracles are real, and we see them every day. Life itself is a miracle, and from now on I know I will never take it for granted again.
