My heart medical condition started last November 24, 2018. I can vividly remember how my jaw locked up when my wife and I were together, watching television. Because of this, I couldn’t breathe. My wife kept on asking me if I was okay but I could hardly breathe. As I drinked a glass of water, I looked up above while staring at our ceiling and prayed; “Lord, if this is already the end of my time here on earth, I will not decline. But, God! My family still needs me.” Right after I’ve said those words, bit by bit my throat started to loosen
My wife called our second child and told him to bring me to the hospital immediately. When they brought me to a small hospital nearby, my breath was just pure exhaling. They put oxygen to me and I asked for water to drink. I was able to consume the drinking water that has the size of three gallon containers that filled my stomach. Then, the doctors suggested transferring me to a bigger hospital. Their doctor told me that my chest is needed to be cut open in half to cleanse my heart. But I refused because we did not have the money that they were asking which ranges from P250, 000 to half a million pesos.
What happened next was another doctor came to us and recommended a cheaper treatment amounting to just 10,000 pesos. It’s an option to thin my blood in order for it to flow in the main roots inside the heart. When they injected it to me, I felt a very warm touch in my veins that caused me to sleep deeper.
On the 25th of November, around 5:30 a.m when I woke up before the operation and I was so hungry and thirsty that time so I asked my son to buy me porridge and drinking water. The nurse saw it and said; “Don’t drink too much water cause your heart is going to drown because it doesn’t beat!” But I was breathing a bit. I refused another operation because it is way too expensive.
Last November 26, 2018, when they examined me again, my blood started to flow slowly. My blood pressure is too low. I am laying sideways cause if I lay down normally, I couldn’t breathe. When my blood pressure got normal, I decided to be discharged from the hospital because of financial problem.
It was December 2018 when one of my children came home and invited me to go to church here at COG Dasma. I was encouraged to pray in order to extend my life and from there, I continued attending worship services here. I keep on praising God for the second life that He has given me. Beginning that day, I felt that each day I was given strength in my body.
After two months, the doctor examined my heart and is normal again. And then, I asked the doctor to give me a ‘fit to work’ and I was able to get back to my work in the government as a driver and messenger.
It was last January of 2019 when I started attending ExCEL services and pleaded Him to heal my heart. Now, here I am testifying that I am healed and I experienced a miracle from the Lord. Now, my dearest brethren, it’s very important that we love our God and give importance to Him. Let’s never forget how faithful and good He is!
