On the 8th of July, the Fulmores were woken up at the wee hours of the morning after a stray bullet hit 13-year-old Aalayah Fulmore in her sleep.
The bullet caught the teen’s abdomen putting a damage to her internal organs. She was rushed to the hospital where she had 7 major surgeries which included removing parts of her intestines, 30 units of blood were used and was kept in the ICU.
For weeks she had internal bleeding with non-functioning kidneys. She had even lost her heart beat twice during her two months stay in ICU. It seemed forever to the tragedy stricken family.
It was by the grace of God, that she, inspite of all the odds stacked against her, recovered from all the damages that the whole ordeal had put her through.
Commenting on her niece’s miraculous recovery her aunt said, “Only God can turn a tragic situation like this around because He always, always has the very last say. Only He can put life back into someone’s heart that stopped.”
The family publicly acknowledged God’s divine intervention throughout the two long months of pain and hoping against hope in God and His mercy.
“Thanks, to God first, then thanks to the Doctors, nurses, assistants, preachers, churches, family and friends who helped our family survive this terrible tragedy,” Aalayah’s grandmother, Judy Faye Fulmore-Gamble shared on Facebook.
The teen finally was able to returned home in September. A welcome barbecue party was organized for her on the day she arrived home.
It had been a marathon of a recovery for the Fulmores. With all the prayers of family, friends, the Church and preachers, timely medical intervention from the doctors, nurses and hospital staffs. Above all, God’s divine healing has kept Stacy Fulmore alive.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Psalms 34:17-18 (NKJV)
