SURVIVING THE SWINE FLU

MUMFORDS MUSINGS

2009 anniversary of life.

25th Oct 2009 I was lying in the ICU in week three of a three-week coma. On this day, the doctor told Lynn that they had done everything they could medically to save my life. I had a temp of 106, MRSA, and sepsis and had been on two weeks of 100% 02. My liver and kidneys had stopped working (total organ failure). I had lost 63 lbs. It was time to die!


Of course, I knew nothing of this except for several visions of heaven, but my poor bride certainly remembers every detail. I was about to become an H1N1 swine flu statistic.


Hundreds of people were praying for me all over the world. The website lit up

like New Year’s Eve. Judith MacNutt was driving with a friend when God told her to pull off the road, saying, “Nigel is dying; we need to pray for his very life.”

God spared my life. That night, I was on my way to heaven. But slowly the life-threatening issue started to abate. Three weeks in a coma, three months in the ICU, and “years” of rehab. I still suffer from issues from what I went through. At the time, I had not yet had my flu shot for that year.

I want to thank everyone who prayed for me between October 10th and December 23rd, 2009. I have no doubt that YOUR prayers saved my life.


THANK YOU.

THANK YOU,

THANK YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.
