On January 15, 2007 I had a hysterectomy at Loyola Medical Center in Maywood, IL. The hysterectomy was very successful. The doctor who performed the procedure is a top gynecologist at the hospital.
Just before I was getting ready to be discharged my gynecologist wanted me to have a cat scan of my lungs. He did not like the way I breathing. As I was laying flat on the table I vomited. The vomit burned my lungs. I was in ICU for six weeks.
During those six weeks I was put into a paralyzed state because everything that was keeping me alive was also making me feel very uncomfortable. During those six weeks my kidneys shut down. I was also on dialysis for one week.
At one point the doctors gathered my family around and told them that I might not make it. At the end of six weeks I beat all odds and DID make it. The power of prayer really works! So many people were praying for me.
At the end of six weeks I went to RML Specialty Hospital in Hinsedale, IL to be weaned off of everything that was keeping me alive. By March 17th I was beginning to finally know what was going on around me. Up until then, I just remembered my niece coming to pick up my Mom after my hysterectomy.
I stayed at RML Specialty Hospital for four weeks. After being in bed for ten weeks I had to go to a nursing home/rehab to build up my strength again. I was in the nursing home/rehab for three months. I am home now walking with a walker. I truly believe the power of prayer is why I am here today!

One morning while driving in rush hour in heavy traffic going north on the Tri-state a truck with a trailer cut in front of me. I wasn’t going more than 60 and I stepped on the brake to slow down and suddenly my car swerved to the left and then to the right and then spun around with cars all around me.
I literally went across all three lanes. I did not hit one car. I was watching my car spin out of control and couldn’t do a thing to stop it! All I could do was grip the steering wheel and say Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God. I kept waiting for the impact of a crash. I finally came to a stop with my car facing west across two lanes with cars headed north toward me. I watched these cars stop one at a time and I felt like I was in a dream. It was slow motion and unbelievable.
I finally was able to get a hold of myself and pull over on the shoulder. The tears were literally just rolling down my face and I was in a complete state of shock. I looked around and all the surrounding cars seemed to be pushed aside. I looked up and said thank you. All I know is that was a true miracle. I did not hit one car and I wasn’t hit by one car. I cannot believe it still. It was THE most terrifying moment of my life. I know without any doubt God was there. There’s no other explanation.
