Nick was a hardworking, well-liked guy in love with his wife of almost two years. But on one fateful July afternoon everything changed. When his boat exploded in a freak accident, Nick suffered burns covering 46% of his body and required 4 skin graft surgeries 4 days in a row. He literally had no skin left untouched.
The medical team’s expectation was that Nick would be in the hospital for three months and not be able to return to work, the business he founded just two years prior, for eight long months. But he was released from the hospital in just three weeks. Defying the odds, he returned to work in just over two months!
"The Nine-Week Miracle" is a memoir with a happy ending, demonstrating the inherent goodness that exists in people. Their willingness to help bridge the gap between suffering and healing was evident in the Amish garage-raising. It is a saga of faith, gritty determination and endurance.
Written by his mother, she says “The nurses told us from the very beginning that the burn unit was like a roller coaster ride with the highs and the lows. And it was. There was dread as we crept up the hill, holding our breath as we crested, then the relief as we raced downward into the valley, the twists, the turns, the clench of the stomach as we approached each new rise. The ride seemed never-ending. From watching my son in his hospital bed day after day, this was a thrill ride I wanted to stop.”
"The Nine-Week Miracle" is a story of survival. The message of triumph over adversity hits loud and clear, relating to anyone’s quest to touch lives more fully and face their demons. The Nine Week Miracle makes us think about what is important.
