I promised Padre Pio that I would tell people of his intercession for me when I’m healed, so here I am. I am now a Padre Pio devotee. I only knew about the Padre Pio Chapel in Libis when I was diagnosed to have placenta accreta and had to undergo chemotherapy. Placenta accreta is a pregnancy related disease that happens to only 5% of pregnant women. I was unlucky to have it though for my first pregnancy that was even a blighted ovum (there was placenta but no baby). Anyway, you can read about these complications in Manila Fitness’ Complexities in Pregnancies post or in EzineArticles.

I first came to the Padre Pio Chapel Libis when my mom suggested that I go there. At that time, I was still hoping that I wouldn’t have to undergo chemo even if the medication was just mild dosages of 0.8 every day. I went to the Padre Pio Chapel Libis and prayed so hard. The worst outcome would be that the doctors would remove my uterus and I would not get pregnant anymore.

The Padre Pio Chapel Libis was quite solemn. It was a little chapel with a life-sized statue of Padre Pio at the front where people go and pray. The chapel also had various testimonials and letters at the right side that you can read. It included letters of gratitude from stars like Julius and Tintin Babao and other people. All of the letters were inspirational.

I made a vow to spread the word about Padre Pio when I’m healed. I had to undergo two courses of chemotherapy but even during that time, we continued to ask him to intercede for us to the Father, so that I may be completely healed. Yesterday, I got my Beta hCG results and they were all normal. I will be having my final (hopefully) ultrasound tomorrow to see if there are still some placental remains, but I know God, through the intercession of Padre Pio, will clear me of all of these things.

The good news is that I may be able to have one child next year. It’s a make or break deal, but we will continue to pray that we may be given a healthy child.
