Nigerian lady and Facebook user, Chiamaka Blessing Joseph Atuo, who marked the 5th year of surviving an accident that affected her spinal cord, recounted how she miraculously got healed following the injury.
According to her, she got married amidst her plight and has also welcomed two daughters against doctor’s report. Here’s what she wrote;
It’s the fifth year, I had terrible accident with my elder brother Uzoemeka Tochukwu that almost claimed our lives, but our lives being hidden in Christ were saved! I was most badly injured. Glasses of wilscreen pieced through my eyes, and I sustained a spine injury. For the months I battled with pains and hurt, my God surrounded me with lovely family and his grace was sure enough!
I miraculously got healed. Though I’m left using glasses for my affected eyes, then little surfacing pains @spine from time to time, I’m fine by the stripes of JESUS CHRIST!
Relating to the accident, my doctor told me my fate to have a child was from 5years above, but God broke the protocol, I got married a year after the plight, got pregnant, not just that pregnancy, but within 3years, became proud mother of two Angelic daughters in less than the 5years the doctor stated, and still counting. If death couldn’t hold JESUS in the grave, it is Blessing Chiamaka Joseph that spine will hold from attaining dreams? No way! I publicize you JESUS, you continue to be God over my life and family, and those who truly believe and follow you! No mortal speaks when God hasn’t commanded!
A spinal cord injury — damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves at the end of the spinal canal (cauda equina) — often causes permanent changes in strength, sensation and other body functions below the site of the injury.
Many scientists are optimistic that advances in research will someday make the repair of spinal cord injuries possible. Research studies are ongoing around the world. In the meantime, treatments and rehabilitation allow many people with spinal cord injuries to lead productive, independent lives.
