It’s so difficult to watch this heartbreaking video of a little girl who’s battling a deadly disease. While in the hospital bed, suffering a lot of pain, she visits the heaven. But what happens next is truly a miracle.
Rachel and Levi went through the hardest part of their lives. Their sweet 6-year-old daughter Kinnady suddenly got ill and was fighting for her life.
Somehow, the little girl contracted bacterial meningitis, a life-threatening infection that causes inflammation of the membranes (meninges) surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This serious disease can be deadly within days if not given antibiotic treatment immediately. Without timely treatment, it may cause severe brain damage and even death.
The heartbroken parents sat in the hospital with their severely ill little girl, fearing the worst. Meanwhile, they contacted their friends and asked everyone to pray for her life.
For the proper diagnosis of bacterial meningitis, it’s necessary to identify the culprit strain of bacteria. So doctors needed to collect cerebrospinal fluid. We can’t even imagine a spinal tap for a little girl like Kinnady. Next, they would give her antibiotics to beat the infection.
During the painful and frightening procedure, the sweet little girl kept praising her family and thanking her nurses for their care. She was surrounded by her loving mom, dad, and Nana. Rachel captured this heartbreaking moment on camera.
Sometimes, exhaustion due to the intense treatment gets the best of Kinnady, and the little girl nods off. This happens when she puts her hands together and starts praying. And it’s in that moment that the little girl goes to heaven.
We can see Kinnady is only out for a split-second, but she returns and joyously exclaims, “I’m here?!”. Her reaction to finding herself in bed again clearly shows it’s completely genuine.
In between telling her family how much she loves them, Kinnady talks about how she’s going to get better and how she prayed about going home.
“I prayed you could go home safely with me,” the Kinnady tearfully explains to her dad at around the 3:50 mark.
The little girl starts nodding off around the 5:48 timestamp, and that’s when her mother says that the girl must think she died and went to heaven. Right then, she starts praying again.
A few minutes later, Rachel explains to the doctor how Kinnady is waking up, saying she went to heaven and is praying.
“It’s good to say prayers,” Kinnady exclaims. “I love God and I love Jesus… and I live with Him!”
Soon after, Kinnady grabs her mom’s hand and asks her family to join her in prayer. Moments later, the sweet little girl excitedly proclaims, “I’m better!”
Kinnady is now a healthy child, enjoys her life to the fullest by singing, dancing, and praising the almighty with her family. Thank you, Jesus, for saving this sweet little girl.
