Is this not incredible?! 4 months after being declared brain dead, the man is now awake and doing well! The family was paying their last respects and they were going to harvest his organs when he moved and woke up. Absolutely amazing! Can you imagine if he had been in surgery and started yelling? Good grief! Makes you wonder about the brain scans! http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/texassouthwest/stories/032508dntexnotdead.1ff8d4ab.html

Thats not only a weird occurence but also must have been quiet fright for the persons who were prepared to harvest the mans organs. I guess that just goes to show just how much we will never be able to fully understand the power of God. Everytime man think we've got something covered God throws in a twist to show us otherwise.

I am not surprised. Technology isn't infallible, nor are doctors. I'm glad for this kid's sake, they caught their mistake in time!

I guess that was one of those one in a million things. I guess they assumed at least one brain scan proved no activity so it was ok. Strange indeed.

Zack was on the news this morning and it was interesting listening to the amazing story. It wasn't his time to go is all I can think. He looked healthy. I do seem to think he was a little bit confused. That might clear up in time. I wish this young fellow a long and happy life.
