Medical Miracle: "Brain-dead" woman walks and talks!

Rae Kupferschmidt

I love this article! It proves that doctors don't know it all, and gives hope. It increases my faith.

Rae Kupferschmidt's family were preparing for her funeral after she suffered a brain hemmorage. "She had a huge bleed and was considered essentially brain-dead," said Dr. Brad Helms of United Hospital in St. Paul, Minn. Tha family removed her from life support, finalized funeral arrangements and brought her home to die. Doctors were stunned when the 65-year-old emerged from her coma started to talk, and eventually walk. Doctors can't explain it. It's a medical miracle....

If you have time, you may want to view the video, it is powerful.

Every once in a while this sort of thing happens, confounding doctors, which is almost sufficient reward in itself.

I work with the mentally retarded population, so a story like this strikes a special chord. Of course, mentally retarded and brain-damaged are not the same thing, yet both groups share similar problems.

Yes, this is amazing! I thought that the video spoke volumes! God does still have his hand in our lives. I know that, but it is good to be reminded every now, and then.
