Hope, Medicine, and Prayer

It was supposed to be one of the best days of her life. It started out happy as Emily Hunton of Murfreesboro, TN delivered a healthy baby boy at Saint Thomas Rutherford. But moments after delivery, all the happiness turned to horror as Emily couldn’t stop bleeding. A team of physicians and nurses jumped into action, but nothing was working. Emily was dying. That’s when doctors decided to use an experimental blood clotting drug still new on the market. They administered the drug and then started to pray. They prayed for the drug to work, they prayed for Emily, they prayed for Emily’s family. Watch the video to see what happens next.
