[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Life Turns Around for a Woman on Dialysis
(Minghui.org) My husband and I, who both practice Falun Dafa, have persevered in informing as many people as possible about the persecution. Along the way we’ve witnessed the lives of so many be blessed after learning the truth about Falun Dafa.
On this World Falun Dafa Day, I would like to tell about one such person to express my gratitude to Master for his compassionate salvation!
Qiukui and I used to work together, but I had not been in touch with her for some time after I was laid off. In the fall of 2012, she called me. With obvious fear in her voice, she cried, “Save me, I have kidney failure.” After I got off work, I went straight to her hospital.
I was shocked when I walked into her room. She had tubes all over, her vital signs were being monitored 24 hours a day, and she had lost her vision temporarily. When she heard my voice, she begged me, “Oh, dear friend, teach me how to do the Falun Dafa exercises.”
“How can you do any exercises now? I am going to teach you to recite 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' Whenever you have time, make sure you say these phrases.”
She started right away. She did not care that others in the ward could hear her. She told me that it was the first time she’d felt happy since she'd gotten sick. I left an audio version Master's lectures for her and told her to listen to them every day.
When I visited her a week later, she told me something amazing. Since she had to have peritoneal dialysis, the doctors had to operate on her to put tubes in her abdomen. When the surgeon opened her up, he discovered she had severe intestinal adhesions that could cause massive bleeding and she might not make it. She and her husband prepared for the worst, but the results were all positive.
I was excited. “Now you see the power of Falun Dafa,” I said to her.
She was not completely convinced, saying, “But the surgeon was very skilled.” I told her that, as long as she continued to recite the phrases and listen to the lectures, things would change.
After Qiukui got sick, her family struggled financially. They decided to move back to their hometown in 2013. I went to see her off and told her to continue reciting the phrases and to read the Fa teachings whenever she had time. I also told her that it was up to her to make the decision whether or not to practice Falun Dafa.
Six months later, she called me again to report on her progress.
Now and then her condition would deteriorate and she would get a high fever. Whenever that happened, she would be hospitalized and treated for days. As she packed for the hospital, she thought to herself. “This has happened many times. After days of misery, they send me home with my symptoms only minimally better.”
She then changed her mind and told her husband, “I am going to recite 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' This time, I am not going to the hospital.”
She calmed her heart and did nothing but recite the phrases over and over and then fell asleep. She woke up the next morning and her fever was gone. She did not feel tired as usual and even wanted to eat. In the past, she had suffered severe nausea and it had been a battle to keep the food down. By the end of the meal, she would be exhausted.
She finally realized and was impressed. “It is amazing. Reciting the phrases does work.” From that point on, she felt better day by day. After four days, all her symptoms disappeared.
She also began reading Zhuan Falun, the main book on Falun Dafa, and did the exercises when she had time. Her health improved and her energy returned.
During the New Year holiday, she called me and thanked me for letting her know the truth about Falun Dafa. I told her that it was Master who saved her.
She was so excited that she now no longer needed anyone else to take care of her. She was able to cook and take care of her son. When her mother-in-law visited her, she made her an elaborate meal. Her mother-in-law was worried and said, “Please slow down. I do not want you to get tired and sick ever again. You scared us enough.”
Qiukui laughed and replied, “I am completely well. Do not worry about me anymore.”
Later she told me that her period returned. It gave her so much confidence that she truly was completely recovered. A healthy glow returned to her beautiful face.
I visited her around the 2014 New Year holiday, and we spent a busy day together.
We went out sightseeing with her son. We walked most of the day, heading home only when it was getting dark. She purchased a lot of groceries and cooked a meal to celebrate. We cleaned up together. She prepared things for her boy for the next day and tucked him in.
Who could imagine that this beautiful, energetic lady once came face to face with death? We talked a great deal that night.
She still recites the phrases daily and taught her mother and mother-in-law to do the same. Even though she has not been doing the exercises regularly and only recites the phrases, this has already changed her fate.
How many people would benefit from Falun Dafa if they were not deceived by the slanderous propaganda? She felt she was so fortunate at such a critical time in her life. She learned about Falun Dafa and elevated to a different realm. Her kidney problem did not mean the end of her life.
She wanted me to share her story with as many people as possible so that others might benefit just like she did.
Thank you, Master!
