"I was pregnant with our third child and my body had an auto-immune response to things that were going on in the pregnancy and it appeared that I had pneumonia and over the course of weeks I just go worse and I was not responding to any treatment. So I ended up in ICU in Abilene Regional.", explains Rafaela.
Her Father-In-Law, David Ray, says, "After she lost the baby she was home for a while and then she went back to ICU. The doctors began to brace us. Her lungs were completely filled, completely black on the x-ray, there really was no hope."
After overcoming this fight against her body she woke to have a greater story than just recovery. "I was visited by different types of angles."
