“Brain Dead” Teenager Awakens From Coma After Her Family Sings Hymns
Life News ^ | 3/14/14 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 03/10/2014 6:01:49 PM PDT by Nachum

LifeNews has repeatedly chronicled cases of people who were prematurely declared dead or said to be in supposedly persistent vegetative states who ultimately recovered.

Now comes the story of Lexi Hansen, a BYU student who suffered critical head injuries last week after being hit by a car. Hansen, 18, was alert and breathing on her own Tuesday, though she was still listed in critical but stable condition. She even tried to get out of her hospital bed. While she has a long road to recovery ahead, her family believes they have witnessed a miracle.

lexihansen“When they brought her in, the doctors gave her less than a 5 percent chance of survival,” said Doug Hansen, Lexi’s father. “They told us to call our family and get them here quickly because she wasn’t going to last too long.”

In a Thursday evening interview with ABC News, Marcia Hansen, the teen’s mother, said tests indicated her daughter had essentially been brain-dead when she was brought to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo.

Yeah, but what is her quality of life going to be, eh? On top of that, how much is this going to cost? I hope they have Obamacare so that the death panel can step in and fix this. Where is Dr. Death, Jack Kevorkian, when you need him? (sarc)

Praise Him.

Mark 10:27 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”

Huh, I had just heard she was in a coma, not brain dead. Blessings for the family; they must be ecstatic. I hope she makes it through OK.

Obviously not “Brain Dead”, thank God! “LifeNews” needs to hire an expert to help their headline writer.

Or in two years when Obamacare if fully entrenched.

Me, too, Mikey. (I think everybody has had them. It’s just that some of us see it- hindsight or otherwise, & some don’t. Or haven’t yet.)

I think they know very well that coma does not equal brain death, hence the quotation marks.I suspect they are deliberately trying to muddle the difference between the two which is a horrible thing to do because it gives the loved ones of actually brain dead patients false hope and prevents much needed organ donations.

I often hear people talk about coincidences...as if that word explains anything,

I guess it would depend on whether coincidence was in the realm of possibility, but the situations that I know of, personally, involved medical personnel (veterinarians, mainly) & multiple tests to confirm because the outcomes were “impossible” & inexplicable by “science”.

Everybody figures it out in their own time- if they’re going to.

:-) As Yogi Berra says, “Some things are too much of a coincidence to be a coincidence”.
