Here’s the testimony of an incredible ‘creative miracle’. A creative miracle is when God does the impossible and re-grows dead or missing tissue-like a missing arm or in this case replaces dead lung tissue.
This is the story of a little boy named Jacob who was one day in bed with life threatening lung disease and cardio complications and the next weekend boogie boarding at the beach on a fine warm Southern California spring day.
It is also a praise report of provision for the whole family during the crisis, and a story of unseen prayers of regular folks like you praying for healing and provision. The following is a first-hand account from Jacob’s mother:
PRAISE GOD !!!
Jacob had his appointment with the Pulmonologist this morning at CHOC. Dr. Y. was STUNNED by the incredible difference in his CT Scan!!!!
The prior CT Scan showed his left lung was 90% filled with Nasty Battle-Droids…I mean Pneumatoceles. The Doctors could not see ANY healthy lung tissue. They “hoped” if they did surgery to remove the dead lung tissue and the HUGE Pneumatoceles they may be able to salvage a portion of his lung and healthy lung tissue “might” re-grow.
Also, the border of Jacob’s lung was so damaged that it was allowing his lung to push into his heart causing pain. The Doctor’s were worried that Jacob’s dead left lung would damage his healthy heart. That is why then called the heart and lung surgical expert, Dr. Palafox. If they were removing the lung and the heart had been compromised he would be the best man to take care of them both while he was inside Jacob’s chest. They planned to remove the “dead-lung” to save the heart. You have two lungs and can live with only one…the heart is a non-negotiable.
The healthy lung tissue is now THERE and the Pneumatoceles are NOT!!
God did not need to wait for surgery to clear anything out of His way… He just created NEW HEALTHY lung tissue just like HE did when he formed Jacob’s lungs originally 8-years ago!! The border of Jacob’s lung is now strong and his heart is not being touched in any way. Praise GOD!!
