I am writing to report a miracle that my family and I attribute to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in accordance with promises made by Her at Elyria.
From Thursday to Friday, February 10-11, 2000, a dear friend of ours made a pilgrimage to Elyria and brought back some of the water that Mary had spoken about.
On Saturday evening, February 12th, I, and two other family members, blessed my mother-in-law with that water and prayed for Maryâs intercession to save her life.
At the time my mother-in-law was in an Evanston hospital near death, due to chemotherapy complications. Specifically, she had a terrible infection in her âgutâ that the doctors thought was likely to take her life that night. We were told on February 12th, as we had been told on February 10th, that she was not likely to make it through the night. She was on a ventilator, and her kidneys were close to shutting down, among other things. She had been receiving chemotherapy to treat bone cancer, also known as multiple myloma.
My husband stayed at the hospital with his mother from midnight on Saturday, February 12 to about 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 13th. During the night, after our blessings and prayers, her body functions began to show improvement for the first time in five days. In the morning the doctors expressed amazement that, not only did she make it through the night but for the first time in a week, there were more positive developments in her condition than negative. From that day forward, she steadily improved. She ultimately beat the infection, came off the ventilator, and improved enough to return home about April 1, 2000.
In June, 2000, her doctors performed a biopsy to see how many cancer cells were present in her bones (or bone marrow, Iâm not sure which). The doctors had told us ahead of time that they were hoping to find 10-15 percent cancer cells in her bones. This would begin a very positive result. When the test results came back, the percentage of cancer cells in her bones was less than one percent. Again, the doctors and the rest of us were amazed. She was and is today in remission from her cancer. We donât know how long the remission will last, but every day is precious, since her only grandson (my husbandâs and my son) was just born in June, 1999. He is now 17 months old. He and his grandmother are spending lots of time together, thanks to Maryâs intercession. We are blessed, indeed.
