Pharmacy student Michael Crowe, 23, went to an Omaha hospital in August suffering from toxic blood poisoning, which led to acute myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle. But after setbacks in his quest to get a heart transplant, his failing heart suddenly mended itself.
Michael Crowe, a second-year UNMC pharmacy student, talks about his recovery at the Nebraska Medical Center on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2012. Crowe was admitted to the hospital about three weeks ago suffering from a virus, which then led to heart failure.
Do you believe that prayer can aid medical recovery?
A 23-year-old Nebraska man suffering from toxic blood poisoning stunned doctors after undergoing a miraculous recovery in which his failing heart suddenly mended itself.
Doctors still dont have any medical answers as to how Michael Crowe overcame a dangerous and untreatable viral infection that caused his heart to shut down. His family credits good medical work and prayer.
Crowe, a second year student at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Pharmacy, was sent to an Omaha hospital in mid-August where he was diagnosed with acute myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle, The Omaha World-Herald reported.
Crowes symptoms had started out like flu and quickly worsened, his family said.
As Crowes heart shut down, his other organs also were starting to fail, the Herald reported. He was on a full heart and lung machine and needing daily blood transfusions.

His stricken family got Crowe on a heart transplant list, fearing it was the only way he might survive.
On Labor Day, their prayers came true but were quickly dashed when doctors said they had found a transplant heart, but thought Crowe was too sick to receive it.
Our joy of Yay, there's a heart!' went to devastation, sister Christy Crowe said.
But just hours later, one of Crowes physicians, Dr. Eugenia Raichlin, noticed the young mans blood pressure increasing on its own.

What happened next was a rapid succession of improvements as his body began fighting off the blood infection.
Nobody can be sure how it happened, but doctors said his heart slowly began working again.
Earlier this month, his breathing tube came out and an MRI of his heart didn't find permanent damage or scars.

We think this is miracle, Dr. Raichlin said.
Crowes family agrees.
It just truly is a medical miracle, his mother, Margie Crowe, said. Excellent medical care and, I think, the power of prayer.
House could have cured his illness by nearly killing him, then killing him and bringing him back to life, then poisoning him, removing a kidney, drilling a hole in his head, and killing him again. All this while muttering negativity to all who come near him.
Searching the article in vain for reports of prayer.
LOL! On the other hand, Dr. “Bones” McCoy would have just pronounced him dead, Jim.
Public Health Warning: Watching and listening to the Main Stream Media can actually be hazardous to your health, well being, and mental health. ( and I am not joking, it’s the truth ).
He’s dead, Jim. You get his Tricorder, I’ll grab his wallet.
Obama Care Health Care would have sent him to Libya as US Ambassador to Libya.
” Hes dead, Jim. You get his Tricorder, Ill grab his wallet. “ .... Startrek in the hood.
Inside the article was this article. Must read:
my how he’s evolved!
Thanks for the link Slyfox.
The parents made the right decision.
I’m not a mormon, but this guy had a good philosophy.
There is nothing like wisdom.
>> “Do you believe that prayer can aid medical recovery?” <<
Yes, if said prayer results in the righting of the spiritual condition that caused the disease.
>> “Doctors still dont have any medical answers as to how Michael Crowe overcame a dangerous and untreatable viral infection that caused his heart to shut down. His family credits good medical work and prayer.” <<

That link brings me to a page with nothing but a link to an ad.
Oh, of course.
This is a miraculous recovery. They happpen but they are rare.
Because there were prayers involved, the questions I have are numerous. THis little “power of prayer” is taken from a long story and testimonial which is excluded.
They happen for the Lord’s purposes, not for man’s purposes.
We’re not getting the whole story.
I suspect that this is one where even the patient hasn’t gotten the whole story.
The press is not telling us the method, manner nor anything about who was praying for him.
So you expect Antichrist’s press to tell us of Christ?
I hope you’re not holding your breath.
No expectation, as you can see. Just an observation.
