    Last week I posted this: Personal Request - Pls Read . During the week my children had flown in to see their mother one last time and we had numerous discussions regarding when we should give the doctors permission to terminate her life support.

    Yesterday I brought my wife home from the hospital. They can find absolutely nothing wrong with her other than she had pneumonia and had stopped breathing. She has no brain damage, has no heart damage and there are no signs of having had a stroke.

    I think the severity of the situation she was in for the past week was impressed upon her yesterday. As we were sitting in her hospital room, a nurse from the ICU passed by. She suddenly stopped, took a step backwards and stared at Pat for a few seconds and then said "My God, we had all but given up on you in intensive care and now you're sitting there and walking around two days later!"

    At every stage of her progression in the hospital, the doctors and nurses said she was getting better, but would be left with some permanent damage and would never be the same again. She beat the odds of a billion to one.

    I want to thank everyone for their support, prayers and thoughts. What has happened is truely a miracle and makes you realize that a lot of things in life are really only minor speed bumps. You never realize what you have until you lose it. Not only has my wife been given a second chance, but so have I.

    While bringing her home yesterday I told her that last week was the luckiest week of her life and that my only regret during this entire sequence of events is that she didn't write down the winning lottery numbers!

    Again my sincere appreciation and thanks to all.

    Bob

    I am so happy for you Bob! You are so lucky to have gotten this second chance so to speak. So the next time your wife is telling you what to do and you are getting irritated with her, just remember that!
    I am sure you realize how lucky you are and will spoil your wife rotten from now on.

    Bob,

    Didn't I tell you miracles can happen? My aunt with the cerebral bleed on June 1 is going home from the hospital tomorrow. She should not be alive, let alone walking and talking.

    Miracles do happen! Glad one found it's way to you too. I am so very, very, very happy for you and your kids.

    I'm so happy for all of you! I have tears in my eyes.

    I can't tell you how much reading this meant to me. I desperately need to believe that miracles do happen.

    Well I am not kidding when I say that if you have a prayer request - send me a pm and I'll add you to my prayer list and I WILL pray for you. I love prayer - prayer works and I love to pray for others.

    That is an amazing story and you should thank God for every day that he gives you with your wife and children, because they truly are a blessing.

    Heyder,

    She's better now than she has been for the past year. Just have to make sure it doesn't happen again. No areas of brain death and no areas in the heart where it is dead also from lack of oxygen. She was "clinically" dead with the exception that her heart continued to beat. All other bodily functions (breathing, eyesight, speach, etc) had ceased. Evidently her brain had turned everything off except her heart. Her blood pressure was over 250.

    Bob
