Medical Miracles?

We often hear the expression: “medical miracles.” Don’t be fooled! They are miracles. Miracles aren’t coincidences…they aren’t accidents. They happen on purpose. But, doctors call them “medical miracles.” That just means, the problem got fixed but we didn’t do it nor did we expect it to be done. You’re “rarely” going to hear a doctor say God heals. Which is funny in itself, but we want to point out some miracle cases that occurred. When you review these articles, keep the fact that the media and the medical establishment views this from a different perspective.




“A second chance
For Tim Kaczmarek, a 48-year-old father from Natrona Heights, Pa., hearing his own heartbeat is living proof of his second chance at life.

The history teacher and basketball coach collapsed inside a Wal-Mart store this summer after a massive heart attack that nearly killed him. After emergency quadruple bypass surgery at a local hospital, he was transferred to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where doctors reopened his chest and implanted a mechanical pump.

The device immediately took over his heart’s job of pumping blood through the body, letting his own organ rest. Doctors fully expected Kaczmarek to stay on the pump long enough to get a heart transplant.

There have been cases of heart patients who were weaned off the pump, but usually those had only a brief recent history of heart failure. Kaczmarek was an unlikely candidate for such a recovery because he had suffered his first heart attack almost 10 years earlier.

But after a month and a half on the pump, doctors saw such improvement in his heart function that they unhooked Kaczmarek from the machine.

“It’s relatively unusual to see a patient like him recover from a major heart attack,” said Dr. Robert Kormos, who runs the artificial heart program at Pittsburgh. “It was a pleasant surprise to find that he had enough cardiac reserve to be able to heal and have a good, functioning heart.”

Pump-free since July, Kaczmarek is recuperating at home in hopes of returning to teaching next year and ultimately, coaching again. He feels lucky to have a second chance at spending the holidays with his wife and two daughters, ages 20 and 22.

“It’s a miracle,” he said. “You can’t believe something like this happens to a person and you’re still here to talk about it.”
