575 days ago...continuation of testimony....by Brian Broadwater on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 6:20pm
As I wrote in the last testimony, I rededicated my life back to the LORD. Many GREAT things have happened in my life since that wonderful day. As of today 10-10-2010, I am 575 days clean from opiates, I was addicited to prescription meds, I am 8 months into my successful Kidney Transplant, more on that in a minute. I have been loving life, enjoying being alive in JESUS, and just having fun, and trying to show people what JESUS can do in your life.
On January 20, 2009, I got call from the transplant center at the Universty of Maryland Medical Center, telling me after almost 7 yrs, they have a kidney that is a match for me. We get to the hospital, and I am preped for surgery, on the table knocked out, the transplant surgeon is ready to start...all of the sudden they found what they thought was a small abcess in my gum. Well of coarse they stopped the surgery, sent me home to see an oral surgeon. He found it was not an abcess, thank GOD, so I was back at the top of the transplant list. Good ole Frostburg then got smothered in snow with a BIG TIME blizzard in February. That was on the 6th, and then on Saturday night the 13th they called again. Back to the hospital, got there at about 3:30am...was in surgery by 7am....awake by noon feeling pretty good. Yes I was on pain meds for 2 days, and yes they know about my addicition. Anyways, I was released from the hospital 4 days later on Thrusday. I haven't any problem, I feel great. I was not ment to have that 1st kidney, GOD picked and touched this kidney just for me...HALLELUJAH
I just received word that I have been accepted into Liberty Univesrtys on-line college program. Going for my assoicated degree in Religious studies, that way I can either go into being a chaplain or get my bachalors degree and maybe being a ordaind pastor...not to worry GOD will give me the answeres. HE has opend my eyes...He has opened so many door for me...
All the Glory and Paise goes to our LORD JESUS, withou HIM I am nothing...yes I am human and screw up...but HE still loves us and died for me.....I love u all...GOD Bless all.....brian
