The Dead Raised again! Woman Suddenly Comes Back to Life, Doctors Call it a "Medical Miracle"

Aimee Herd : May 23, 2008  AP Staff – AP, Yahoo News

By the time she was found, her body had become stiff with rigor mortus.

Paramedics were able to revive her, but only after an estimated 15 minutes without oxygen or a pulse—she was rushed to an area hospital. During procedures to lower her body temperature, Val's heart stopped two more times.

The Thomas family was told by doctors that Val had only a 10 percent chance of survival. She went 17 ½ hours with no brain waves, while waiting for word on an organ donor recipient. The family made the decision to take her off life support.

Daniel Pence, Val's nephew said, "[I prayed] to God, ‘Just show me something, I know there's something here,' but I didn't see it."

Some time after the life support tubes were removed from Val, she suddenly awoke. Doctors say, although her heart stopped three times, Val does not have any heart blockages. She was taken to Cleveland Hospital for further evaluation, but they could find nothing wrong with her—they are calling it a "medical miracle."

"I feel very blessed, I know God has something in store for me," says Val.

One fact that has not been mentioned before in other media reports is that a relative [niece-in-law] of Val, named Darla, had been prayed for by an attendee of the Lakeland Healing meetings in Florida. As this person prayed over Val's relative, she told her that there would be "healing, revival . . . and restoration in her family." At the time, the relative of Val Thomas did not know what she meant by that, however, now she is praising God for her Aunt Val's resurrection.

Says Darla, "Jesus stepped in when man stepped away—when doctors could do no more—Jesus did the rest."
