God Still Works Miracles!

But when her left eye began to droop, the symptoms got her attention! To make it really interesting, she noticed an occasional drooling from the left corner of her mouth!

And that is when her husband, Dr. Douglas Fowler, (himself a surgeon) made an appointment for her to have an MRI scan. The dye in her blood pinpointed a tumor between the 7th and 8th nerve, and the doctor recommended an immediate appointment with a specialist in Gainesville, Florida!
However, the Fowlers said, "we'll go home and pray about it!" Phone lines were hot with prayer as intercession was made before the Throne of God! They both had to deal with issues of personal fear, doubt, and faith. Dr. Fowler sought specific Divine guidance.

"Now you don't!"
A second scan, this one a CATSCAN (designed to yield more definitive bone information) was scheduled in Birmingham, Alabama, where some of the USA's foremost specialists are familiar with cases like Sue's.
August 20, 1996, Birmingham. The dye was injected. Sue was positioned in the machine, and the CATSCAN procedure completed. The doctor knew exactly what he was looking for, since he already had the MRI films! He called the Fowlers into the office, and showed them the scans, side by side. He pointed to a portion of one scan, and said, "Well, I have good news! There is no tumor! See the hole in the bone? That is where it WAS, but now it is GONE!" He went on to describe possible tests and treatments for her continued hearing loss, and asked her to return for a checkup in six months.
Coronary Artery Disease
For over a year, Sue had also had occasional chest pains and shortness of breath. While she was visiting family in
North Carolina in October 1996, the severity of her symptoms encouraged her to have a checkup. Sue has a family
history of coronary artery disease.
Therefore, she took a 2-day Stress test, which revealed the following results in the official 2-page report:
"...There was also significant leg fatigue and reproduction of chest heaviness consistent with angina pectoris. There was some radiation of the discomfort into the base of the neck..."
"...Exercise electrocardiogram showed primarily an upsloping abnormality from a depressed J-point at the end of Stage 2 of the Bruce protocol..."

And so, Sue returned home to prepare for possible by-pass surgery! Again, the phone lines were HOT as intercession went up to the Father! Dr. Fowler felt she needed a heart catheterization to pinpoint the artery blockages.
Consequently, one week later, in Dothan, Alabama, Sue was wheeled into the operating room for a cardiac catheterization procedure. She talked with the medical crew... "Now, I don't want you to get upset with me! I need to warn you that since you are not putting me under full anesthesia, I am going to be praying in the Spirit... so you just go ahead and do YOUR thing, while I am doing MY thing!"
Several intercessors had given a prophetic word from God for Sue regarding the King James translation expression in the Psalms "my heart is FIXED, oh Lord, my heart is FIXED!" and she clung to Jesus for her help in this time of need.

As she lay there on the table, watching the spaghetti-like images of her arteries on the monitor screens, praying in tongues, suddenly she heard the doctor: "Well, isn't that incredible! Will you just look at that!"
All Sue could see was "spaghetti"... she couldn't know the significance of the images! "Why, you have the arteries of a 15-year old!" exclaimed the doctor in amazemen?t!
The medical crew really enjoyed Sue's disposition and powerful witness to Jesus' healing power there in the operating room... and no doubt were just as impressed as was the doctor, as the realization of what they were seeing unfolded on the screens before them.
One after another, the TECHNETIUM-99 scans recorded a perfect circulatory system... and again, the doctor who had a diagram, and who had a detailed, descriptive diagnosis, and knew EXACTLY WHERE TO LOOK, could not find any evidence of circulatory problem in her whatsoever! And Sue Fowler went to the recovery room rejoicing!
In the official Catheterization Report, the following are noted:
"But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5, KJV).
"...If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee." (Exodus 15:26, KJV).
"But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith He to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house." (Matthew 9:6, KJV).
"Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye were healed." (1 Peter 2:24, KJV).
