OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – An Oklahoma couple say God is in charge after her husband came home from the hospital to die miraculously recovering from COVID-19.

“The doctor said, ‘Well, you know you’re sending him home to die.’ And I said, ‘There’s someone so much greater than you, that would be a blessing for him.’ And thank God we made that decision,” said Lola Cresente, wife of Nelson.

Nelson Cresente and his wife Lola have been together for 25 years, but this holiday season they are thankful for the opportunity to add even more time to their love story.

The couple were fully vaccinated when they tested positive for COVID-19 over the summer. Lola recovered, but Nelson’s health continued to decline causing him to go to the hospital.

“The physician shared with me that I needed to be on a ventilator. They both think that’s not what they want from him. They want him to come home and be comfortable,” said Sara Brickey, President of Valir PACE.

“We have made a decision. I prayed about it. We sat there in the hospital and said, ‘I don’t want him on a ventilator. This is not what they want,” Lola said.

Lola and Nelson have chosen to go home and spend the little time left together.

But then a miracle happened.

A next-door neighbor asked if she could pray for Nelson, especially that his lungs would open.

The next day, Nelson’s nurse practitioner came in to check his lungs.

“I listened to his lungs, and his healthcare nurse listened to his lungs, and we looked at each other and was like, ‘We’re hearing the air in here! It’s like the air is moving,” said Ashley Henson, a nurse practitioner with Valir PACE.

Nelson’s lungs started working again.

“And here I am. And thank God,” said Nelson. “There is no way I can pay this. This is something that comes from God and I live. Thank you. Thank you.”

Both believe that God has something to do with it.

“There is no doubt in my mind about that. Just like I say now, people don’t give up, because your beliefs, beliefs and health are very important. But without trust, you cannot have your health,” says Lola. “Our story is basically about miracles, faith and love.”

Nelson and Lola attribute Nelson’s survival not only to their beliefs but also to the vaccine.

They believed that with him as close to death as he was, he would have had no chance of recovery without their shots.

Nelson has yet to regain his appetite but is looking forward to the day when he can enjoy a steak dinner again.
