One week ago, five days after safely delivering our son on June 17, we made an emergency 1.5 hour trip to the hospital after I developed severe generalized edema, hypertension, difficulty breathing, and headache. By the time we arrived at the hospital, I could no longer communicate or remember my child's name, and for the first time in my life felt very clearly that I would die. God spoke Psalm 118:17 over me and I repeated it in my spirit over and over again.. "I will not die, I will live, and declare what the Lord has done." God did incredible things.
Four days later I was discharged with probable multiple pulmonary micro emboli (blood clots in my lungs) and had lost 30 pounds of fluid. I felt very clearly that Jesus heard the cries of His kids, and I was healed. I am slowly recovering, at home, holding my babies, thankful for life, thankful for Jesus, thankful for all of you who have held us up.
