That Saturday, July 20th, Cadyn opened his eyes, setting off a recovery that shocked doctors and proved the power of faith in Christ. As he progressed, doctors warned his parents that he might plateau, and that his recovery would be long and arduous, but Cadyn seemed to defy them on every point. First, he began writing, penning a letter to the truck driver that simply said “I forgive you”. His left side was paralyzed, but soon it began to move. He began to walk that afternoon. He spoke just moments after doctors said he wouldn’t for months; they said he would have a feeding tube for weeks and he pulled it out himself the next night. The original prognosis was that he would be in ICU for many weeks, and then go through inpatient rehab for many months. Exactly two weeks after the accident, July 29th, Cadyn walked out of the hospital.
The miraculous recovery continued once he returned home, and now he is almost fully recovered, all within a month from the accident. Cadyn also told his parents he saw angels in his hospital room, three to be exact, and there were more angels at the accident scene. He also heard Jesus speak to him in his heart, saying that He was going to protect Cadyn. Nikki shared more of his words. “One of Cadyn’s life ambitions is to be a pastor and tell people about Jesus. He said the devil tried to kill him because he’s special to God, but the devil couldn’t kill him, just make him weak for a little bit.” One of the doctors thanked Cadyn before he left, saying “thank you for showing me what a miracle looks like.”
Officials from Scott & White Children’s Hospital in Temple, TX have asked the Carroll family to present Cadyn’s story to the board of trustees on August 16th, an event they all look forward to as an opportunity to share the miracle God performed.
