‘Miracle’ recovery astounds man’s family

with one comment

Mike Connelly’s family and many of his nurses are calling him a miracle man —- and doctors are hard-pressed to disagree.

The 56-year-old Vista man’s heart stopped in late January and he lay in a coma for 96 hours before his family tearfully gave the OK for physicians at Tri-City Medical Center to disconnect life support.

That’s when Connelly woke up.

His stepson, Mike Cooper, was reading Scripture beside Connelly’s hospital bed last week when he saw a tear slide down the man’s cheek.

Cooper said he didn’t think that was significant until he left the room and started walking down the hallway, only to hear shouts from a family member still at Connelly’s side.

“He said Mike was responding,” Cooper said. “I didn’t believe him, but I went back in there, and it was true. You would say his name, and he would turn his head toward you. It was a miracle.”

This is a very touching story. Read more: ‘Miracle’ recovery astounds man’s family
