In Mid February 2015 I became sick with flu which turned over into lung infection. On 10th March I was admitted to hospital. I went through so many tests that we lost count. The doctor’s diagnosis was "Unknown Acute Liver Failure" as they could not establish the reason for my liver failure.
My condition rapidly deteriorated. My kidneys started failing as well and they had to start with dialysis.
The doctors started to prepare us for a liver transplant as that was the only option left.
On 30th March I began to struggle to breath as all the water built up in my body and pressed on my lungs. I was then transferred to ICU.
On 4th April the doctor had induced me in a coma, and I went on live support.
The doctors started to prepare Cornelia for the worst. They told her to call the children to come and say goodbye. But she decided not to speak death over me by repeating what the doctors said and didn't allow the enemy to use her mouth the kill me.
She stood on Psalm 41 and spoke it over me for hours on the days she visited me.
"The Lord will preserve Willie and keep Willie alive until his new liver arrives. The Lord will strengthen Willie and sustain him on his sickbed in Jesus Name".
On 7th April the hospital received a liver and I went in for surgery. During this time hundreds of people prayed for us. The body of Christ came together as a spiritual army. People we know and people who we do not know prayed for us. Friends and family around the world prayed for us.
On Friday morning 10th April the doctors told Cornelia that I was back on the transplant list because the donor liver also failed.
That evening the doctor called Cornelia from the hospital and said that they received a second liver and I would go in for a second liver transplant on Saturday 11th April.
On 13th April the doctors took the dialysis off and reduced the medication, they slowly started bringing me out of the coma.
On 14th April they took me off the life support for because my lungs and kidneys started to functioned on its own, they stopped the medication and I came out of the coma.
An angel came to visit me.
On 20th April the doctors told Cornelia that my physical condition is above expected, but my emotional condition is very bad that I was mentally disturbed and this was caused by the trauma of the two liver transplants and everything before and during my illness.
Cornelia and the body of Christ prayed around the clock during this time.
On 5th May I was transferred from ICU to a normal ward. My progress amazed the doctors.
On 19th May, I went home. Initially they planned this for the end of May. I was a total of 71 days in hospital.
In October 2015 I started to work again for 3 days a week and 4th January 2016 I went back to work full time.
Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE FOR God. God can heal you as well.
