Brain Damaged for 10 Years, Firefighter Makes Astounding Recovery

Just sixty-five miles down the road in Buffalo comes news of a recovery from a state worse than what Terry Shaivo was in. CNN is among the reportage [1]

ORCHARD PARK, New York (AP) — Ten years after a firefighter was left brain-damaged and mostly mute during a 1995 roof collapse, he did something that shocked his family and doctors: He perked up.

“I want to talk to my wife,” Donald Herbert said out of the blue Saturday. Staff members of the nursing home where he has lived for more than seven years raced to get Linda Herbert on the telephone.

It was the first of many conversations the 44-year-old patient had with his wife, four sons and other family and friends during a 14-hour stretch, Herbert’s uncle, Simon Manka said.

“How long have I been away?” Herbert asked.

“We told him almost 10 years,” the uncle said. “He thought it was only three months.”

Good thing the leftists so keen to kill off Terry Shaivo, didn’t know about THIS chap, eh?

But…. they stammer… there was no hope… this can’t happen….

“It’s almost unheard of after 10 years,” she said, “but sometimes things do happen and people suddenly improve and we don’t understand why.”

In short, we’ve just had a reminder that they’re not God.

H/T to a pal over at Buffalo’s WYRK for the tip….
