The doctors call him The Miracle Man because the incarnation is a wild concept many don’t believe in. It is not every day we hear about people coming back to life.

It was just the beginning of more complications Hill would face in his medical journey. Soon he contracted more health issues after the surgery.

Hill Contracts Calciphylaxis

Once the surgery was over, Hill contracted calciphylaxis. According to the Mayo Clinic, it is a severe and uncommon disease where calcium gathers in the fat and skin tissues.

“I had three days where my legs were bleeding out - it just wouldn’t stop.” Hill lost over two liters of blood which eventually led to his temporary death.

Kevin Returns!

The explosive pain did not stop Kevin from being grateful for another life. Even though he was gone for a while, Kevin returned and shared his experience.
