what an incredible case! I spent 10+ yrs as a pediatric R.N. and the capacity for healing in children is really amazing...God blessed him & his family, as well as giving the hospital staff the ability to keep him alive! Great, heartwarming, miraculous story!

Not so fast with the praise for modern medicine. It doesn't say anything about how many vaccines he had in his young life. I've read about how vaccines suppress the immune system temporarliy or permanently. Many young people died due to H1N1. I'm suspicious that it was because of immune system suppression and the crippled system it can leave one with. Of course we won't hear a story about that, just stories praising vaccines and talk about the rare and mild side effects.
