Once basic survival seems assured, the worst uncertainty for families of traumatic brain injury patients isn't the duration of any motor skill deficits, or even the cognitive skill deficits. It's that often the personality you knew and loved all those years is gone, and replaced with someone volatile, or juvenile, or tactless, or paranoid, or any number of or combination of things. And you have no idea how long that may last.

Her doctors have said though that she actually had quite little post-surgical brain swelling and that the bullet passed through very high up, possibly too high to wreak major damage on critical areas closer to the center, so, she may turn out to be a singular case in terms of recovery prospects relative to the extent of tissue damage.

But I can't help but notice that Giffords' miraculous and speedy progress seems so much like those impossible recoveries on tv medical dramas. In a good way of course. But still.
Ya, I am not afraid to say it ... it's a miracle.


Last night her husband was on 20/20 with Diane Sawyer and it was so moving. They both are such remarkable people! What a great love story.

They just announced also that she is leaving the hospital Friday for rehab! Wow!! Amazing!

I personally stay away from the concept / miracle

the only miracle is that she was born in the 1970s instead of the 1870s, at a time when medicine has advanced to a point where she is able to survive.

Where was the miracle for the other six families? Is part of the miracle equation, that the 9 year old dies, so Gabby makes it?


As for her husband, he spent the first 30 minutes in the bathroom throwing up, because like many of us, he got the report that she was dead.
Everything after that has been nothing but good news for him.

On the Diane Sawyer interview her husband said Beautiful Day is her favorite song and he wants to play it for her in her room.

They seem to have a real love and quite a marriage.

Wow. That was harsh. I don't like what you are implying.

Yes, I think it's a miracle that she is recovering so quickly. I don't pretend to understand the mystery of GOd or how he works. All I know is the doctors have been using this term for her recovery so it's sounds like this is above and beyond the norm.

NO I don't think this was some sort exchange for the lives or happiness of the other victims. Give me a freaking break.

I agree with deep; there is no God and we will all die alone.

I don't see why it's any sort of issue, if Jeannieco or anyone else here wants to post about any feelings about it being a miracle of some sort. Don't think it has to be any sort of argumentative issue.

There could be a God, or something.

I just don't see him (if he exist) with any relationship to this terrible incident.


If he was/ is intervening. Why didn't he just have the gun jam?

Aw . I love the story about the teddy bear, too .

Yeah. I can't imagine having to watch a loved one go through such things, but they both seem to be handling it with such strength and composure. I really admire their relationship, and am thrilled that Giffords is making such speedy progress. I know what you mean, Ali, it really does seem strange that her recovery is moving along so quickly, but given what yolland said about her injury, that would explain a great deal of it. That, and perhaps a particularly strong will.

Thanks for saying that.

Deep, my spirituality is my business, what does it have to do with this?

Whatever your views, it sounds like you have some anger issues..sorry if I triggered them.
And yes, I see the good at work in this horror show. What about the heroes that stopped further carnage? He could have killed even more people so I chose to shine a light on that side of it not the darkness.

If you were God, would you create human beings as programmed robots or would you create human beings with free will?

Let's drop the opportunistic point-scoring and stick to the topic here, eh guys?

I don't feel like this is an argument.
This is a discussion board, where people share their opinions and beliefs.

It does not bother me if you want give an opinion that this is some kind of a miracle. I don't know why it should bother anyone if I give my opinions.

All through this thread I have been happy for any good news for the survivors and their families. Since you brought up, I am a pretty calm person. I don't get riled up very easy.
