    Boy, 2, Survives 30 Minutes Underwater - Yahoo!

    Doctors said there was no way the child escaped disabilities although being brought back to life. Mother said he IS a little different from before his experience. He talks better!

    How many times have we neglected to see the miracles that happen each day?

    Just think of the gifts that came your way. Thank you, God.

    lets hope cammpbell doesnt see this thread

    i hate to be a naysayer but most likely he fell into cold water....which causes the body to shut down blood flow to the limbs and non vitals...maintaining a flow to the brain and it happens more often than people think....if you dive into cold cold water...head first you will pass out.....feet first you are good to go

    move on jackson...nothing to see here but advancements in medical science

    Okay strollingbones, I am no doctor. But if it was my child, I'd be thanking Someone other than a doctor first.

    I'm glad the little boy is okay after being resuscitated. 30 minutes underwater is not good, generally speaking.

    When I became disabled and unable to teach any longer, I became really depressed and my son wanted me to move four states away to live near him.

    In the shape I was in, I couldn't keep the house up to sell it let alone be able to pack the house due to subsequent operations. I prayed for help and a path to follow.

    I happened to be at Kinkos one day and a young man and woman wanted to bind some booklets he made for his class at the U. It would cost $100.00 the Kinkos employee said. But the young man didn't have the money.

    I was standing behind him and told him I didn't live far and had a binder and equipment at home. They came over, I bound the books and they loved my house. They agreed to wait for my recovery and bought my home. They paid my asking price.

    Yes, there are other stories as well, but this tells me Someone was listening. I am so very grateful. Coincidence? I don't think so.

    remember all questions may be ask...but not all questions will be answered

    I had an opetration that removed a good part of my stomach and remade an opening to my intestines due to exacerbated bleeding ulcers and scare tissue. Then I was injured, four cervical vertebrae are fused together and I am unable to move my head to the sides.

    I taught from 1st to eighth gtade and loved all of the grades. I spent the last 10 years teaching at risk 1st graders and then became a Consultant hiring and recommending firing for new teachers.

    Loved the teaching part, but recommending firing was so very difficult. Worked with the teachers for a full year and some couldn't understand how to control a classroom. Sad indeed.

    Thank you for the interest.

    Yeah....he's right there with Tim Tebow and the boys working miracles in the NFL and at the same time allowing nearly a billion people, mostly children to starve to death or suffer from mal nutrition. That poor son-of-a-bitch needs a management school so he can get his priorities straightened out
