Miraculous Experience: Full Recovery from a Severe Case of Emphysema
(Minghui.org) Da Mei, a friend of mine, was taken to a provincial hospital with a severe case of emphysema, a condition in which the air sacs of the lungs are enlarged, causing breathlessness and wheezing.
At this critical moment in her life, Da Mei agreed to sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good.” She recovered within three days and was discharged from the hospital after a total of five days.
This experience made her change her opinion about Dafa, and she started to practice Falun Dafa herself.
Misguided by Propaganda
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution against Falun Dafa in July 1999. Da Mei, a relative and friend, was misguided by the CCP's lies and propaganda about Dafa, and so asked me to give up my belief because she said that she cared for me.
Using a metaphor, I explained that I know what the peach I was eating tastes like. I told her that she acquired her knowledge about Falun Dafa from hearsay, and if it were not for Dafa I would still be suffering from various illnesses.
I encouraged her to give it a try and practice Dafa with me, but she said, “My body is strong! I would rather die than practice Falun Dafa, even if I were very ill one day.”
Only a Miracle Could Help Her
Da Mei came down with emphysema a few years later, and complained of shortness of breath. She was told that a hole had appeared in one of her lung's lobes, and needed surgery. However, surgery at this hospital might not be totally successful, as they lacked the required medical expertise in this area.
She was getting on in her years and the operation was very expensive. Yet, after several setbacks, the hospital finally agreed to perform the surgery.
Da Mei visited her doctor the night before surgery and gave him a red gift envelope, which contained about 3,000 yuan. The doctor told about her condition and encouraged her to use a more conservative method of treatment instead of having surgery.
He was very direct with her. “Your chances of recovery are not good. There is an 80 to 90 percent chance of you dying during surgery. Even if you do survive, you'll have to rely on a ventilator for the rest of your life,” he said.
Da Mei cried and asked if she should just wait for death. She was only 54 years old. She asked if there was anything else she could try. He told her that only a miracle could help her.
Falun Dafa Is Good
I called Da Mei as soon as I heard about her ordeal. She said in a barely audible voice that it was difficult to talk, but we could text each other.
The thought that only Falun Dafa could save her flashed through my mind. I asked Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Dafa, to strengthen my righteous thoughts. I felt that my every word could dissolve the old force factors behind her.
“Da Mei, I believe that you will be saved if you can change your mindset,” I told her. “But it all depends on you.”
She agreed to listen. I asked her to recite the words “Falun Dafa is good,” and told her that I hoped she would recover soon.
She called me three days later and told me that the hole in her lung had disappeared. She said, “The doctor told me that everything is normal. It's amazing.”
I was speechless and moved to tears. She later informed me that she was discharged from the hospital after five days.
When my wife and I visited her, she said, “When my doctor said that my recovery was a miracle, I was a little surprised, but I believed that it was truly a miracle.”
“Today, I know that your Master is a great man,” she added. “He must be a god. I am so ashamed. I don't dare to show my face when I think of what I said against Falun Dafa in the past. Could you give me the book Zhuan Falun, because I want to learn to practice Dafa.”
