Bailey was in the hospital for two weeks and spent 11 days paralyzed from the waist down. Doctors had no explanation for her condition at the time.
When she was able to start walking again, Bailey waited to surprise a favorite nurse when she started her shift. She wheeled up and as the nurse moved in for a hug, Bailey stood up.
The nurse’s reaction was equal parts emotional and ecstatic. The whole thing was captured on a cell phone video posted by her parents.
“Yes, thank you, Lord! Thank you!” the nurse cries as she embraces Bailey.
