...boy recovers completely
Although a team of four physicians insisted that his son was brain-dead following the wreck, Thorpes father enlisted the help of a general practitioner and a neurologist, who demonstrated that his son still had brain wave activity. The doctors agreed to bring him out of the coma, and five weeks later Thorpe left the hospital, having almost completely recovered.

Congratulations on the good news.
Well I guess she knows I exist. I’m flattered, but does she really care about my opinion? so I shouldn’t quit my job to become a stand-up comedian?
Thank you for that post.
We had to make this decision for our daughter, and I’ve often found these types of threads to be very troubling.
Luckily, I have a family member who occasionally participates in these surgeries and he has been able to reassure us.
I agree with Goat Granny.
If my organs did not work well enough to keep me alive, they have no business putting them in anyone else.
If I told you how many times I’ve seen old people with no family present at bedside who were operated upon purely for profit you would swear of physicians and change your diet, lose weight and get with the program.

We should all keep this in mind, so we know what to do if it happens to someone we know.
Triumph of Life ping. I wish there was more good news of this nature.
When/IF they ever learn to fear God ...
Sounds like an allergy to corn and corn products.
God wills whatsoever comes to pass, put Bustard's lack of consent is pretty good assurance that God does not want him to have a donated organ.
I share Bustard's sentiments and I resent being compelled to support a insurance/medical system that redistributes wealth in all sorts of perverse ways.
For an AB you sound pretty humble.
No judging from a personal level only but on their patient care in the hospital. I put my whole family including my father for cardiac care from doctors at the hospital I worked at...For dad I got him into the department head of cardiology for his multiply heart problems...In fact the cardiologist took blood samples in the office and found his blood chem was way off...he put him in the hospital and he was finally diagnosed with colon cancer but refused surgery from the surgeon he was assigned...I breathed a sigh of relief cause the surgeon was not the best. Quite a few of his patients seems to always have wound infections. Some of the doctors are really artists at medicine because it is part art as well as a science..
He went to another surgeon that he liked, but in the 2 weeks from one hospital to the other, he had developed acute leukemia, which they found in preop blood work up which was hinky and it took almost a week to find exactly what the problem was...He passed on in my house 4 days out of the hospital....prognosis without chemo was 10 days to 6 weeks....he went 10 days before he passed on
