It was a regular day. Marlie Hall, a journalist, was just getting ready to go to work when she got a call with terrible news. She was said, that her father who was in Haiti had his heart stopped. There was no automatic ventilating machine in the local hospital, so the nurses were literally pumping him oxygen, each after each, for good six hours. Later on, Marlie rented a private jet to bring him to another hospital where he underwent a full medical examination.
Doctors told Marlie that she should brace herself for the worst. Because of lack of oxygen, her father’s brain was injured and his kidneys and liver didn’t function properly. Neurologists said, that one comes out of this kind of coma only in Hollywood movies. In fact, the man was dying.
But Marlie didn’t want to give up. All the time she was beside her father, throughout the day and night. She was hoping that soon he will recover. All the time she was talking to him. In about one week, during one of such conversation, he opened his eyes! Doctors couldn’t believe that he actually reacted to his daughter’s words, supposing that it was only consensual movement. But Marlie believed that he has heard her and answered by opening his eyes. Later, he started moving his lips, then talking… It was obvious, that he was really recovering!
The doctors made re-examination and had to admit that the man is absolutely conscious and can speak and the previous diagnosis is not valid anymore. Specialists called his recovery “a real miracle”.
The daughter couldn’t stand crying from happiness. She is extremely happy that he father came back and hopes that they will never experience such nightmare again.
