We had a patient in our unit who has a gastric carcinoma. He wasn’t my patient actually but I got to know him because I had to fetch him from the endoscopy unit where he had a series of endoscopic procedures.
The patient was actually diagnosed from another hospital, and tissue samples confirmed of his malignancy in the stomach. He was scheduled for a gastrectomy tomorrow, where his stomach will be removed. He went to the endoscopy today to verify the findings and to locate the exact area of the operation.
My colleague went for his lunch break when the endoscopy unit called and asked for a nurse to bring the patient back to the unit. I went there myself to get the patient. The nurse there gave the endorsement, and she was also surprised about the findings: there was no carcinoma seen in his gastrointestinal tract. He was cleared from cancer! We had to lower down our voice so that the patient does not hear what we were talking about, because the results can only be relayed by the doctor to him.
Later in the afternoon, the patient’s wife talked to me about the endoscopy results. The doctor has explained to them what they found out, and of course, the surgery tomorrow might get cancelled. She said she prayed a lot, and that God answered her prayers. It’s a miracle indeed!
Nothing is impossible with God. When we feel that life is too much, we should just always remember that there is somebody Above who never sleeps.
