A Vision of Mercy

On April 25, 2022 I had hip replacement surgery at Boone Hospital. I was the first surgery that morning with Dr. Anz, the surgeon, at 7:00 a.m.

I woke up during surgery a little before 9:00 a.m. I felt a pounding on my hip. The anaesthesiologist asked me if I felt pain. I said no. She said that they were finishing up and when they were finished I would be taken to recovery. She left and I saw the vision of The Divine Mercy. I thought Divine Mercy was the day before  I closed my eyes and opened them again. The vision was still there but only for a few seconds and Jesus was gone. I felt the Divine Mercy was letting me know everything was going to be all right.

That afternoon Dr. Anz came into my hospital room and said, “When I asked you how long have you had pain and you said over 20 years, I found a severe tear in the muscle holding the hip. It was an old tear that never healed and there was a lot of scar tissue.” He said that he tried to mend it the best he could and that my recovery would be longer. It takes eight weeks to heal a tear of the muscle.  

I shared my vision with Dr. Anz and he said that it was a first for him. He had not heard of any of his patients having a vision like that.

Because of that vision, I bought a picture of Divine Mercy and it is enthroned in our home. Truly there is a God.
