Sounds to me like the hillbilly doctors ought to go back to medical school.
Thank goodness this lady is all right, it's wonderful!

Only wanting her organs. Organs are more valuable than her in the eyes of the hospital. She should sue for the damage they did to her brain when they took her off the vent.

God claims another interesting medical case as His own. I seriously doubt the story as it is written but would be happy to look into the facts a little further. These types of stories just write themselves. I personally think it's a big bunch of crap. The doctors quotes look exactly like the result of quote-mining. It's a feel-good story and lacking on facts. "Even the doctors are baffled." That's a joke.

Hey Justin- go ahead and "look into the facts"! There's more to this one than you think. No matter which way you slice it (and I have to say the whole rigor mortis thing scores a pretty good point for God's hand in the matter), at the very least you have to admit this blows the door irrepairably open on cases where docs "determine" a patient is clinically dead and pull the plug on life support, often merely to free up hospital space, sometimes despite response signals or their families' wishes. Looks like it's either that, or this was simply a miracle. Have a nice day :).

Did she see Heaven? How did it look over there? Did you see any of your love ones who have deceased? Did you meet Jesus? Please let me know.

She is talking and praising her God, doesn`t sound like she had any kind of permanent damage.

I know Val Thomas . I am pleased to call her a friend and a sister in Christ. We attend the same church and have worked on projects together in the past. It is no joke, no hoax just the power of God. We serve a Mighty God and He is still in the business of Healing.
She is doing well and can't wait to get home to spend time with her Gran Children.

Praise God! Why wasn't this story aired longer on the news stations? Could it be that people really don't want to give God the glory? Whatever anyone thinks, it doesn't change the fact that God gets ALL the glory.

Hallelujah, stop the hating for God works in mysterious ways, but HE WORKS! It only takes 2 believers to ask in HIS name!
Doctors are like cops and lawyers because they ALL make mistakes because they don't know ALL the answers but make daily life/death decisions for other people bases in the information they do have at that moment.

"But loved ones didn't give up. They prayed in Ernest Holding onto hope and even had praise and worship right in the waiting room."

He is worthy to be praised. In every situation, Alot of us tend to take matters into our own hands when we fail to realize God has the last say so. God definately has a purpose for u Mrs.Thomas and I am so glad that u know and believe in him. He's an awesome god of much and many works. I love him and without him we would be in a world of trouble. Its truly a blessing to u and that he's giving u a second chance. U have a great testamony. God bless u and your family. He is Real... Continue to praise him at all times.
