Leah Lewis

Hi my name is Leah Lewis. I got nf around 2009 Thanksgiving. I thought it was just like any other infected bump or sore. It was hurting pretty bad and I was just trying to get through the holidays keeping antibiotic ointiment on it. But it open on its on, and the pain did not go away, I started feeling like I was going to pass out, so I had my friend call an ambulance. I got to the hospital an ask the paramedic if he thought they would keep me and he said yes. Going through the emergency room door is the last thing I remember before I was completely out of it. My family and friends said I was out for about 3 weeks. During the 3 week they called in my sister to make a decision to take me off the equipment. But that same day she placed a prayer cloth under my pillow, and my best friend called in one of our church deacons to pray over me. The next day I came too. Just before coming too I herd a booming voice saying I'm not done with you yet and no one was a round me. When I opened my eyes there was a urgent need to tell others about what happened and we only had a short time. It was a long time before I could even talk at all an I was still having surgery everyday. All in all I had 21 surgerys an several trips to the barametric chamber. I ended up in hospital 4 months, rehab for 3, then 3 more months recouping at home. I know that it is only by the grace of my savior the Lord Jesus Christ and the prayers of my family and friends that I'm alive today. I hope that anyone that reads this will be encouraged that you can get through this an my prayers go out to all that has had this an the family's and friends that are there for us. God's grace be with you all.
