Well, if you believe in that kind of thing, which I do, it sure seems like a miracle.

There’s a new story on MSNBC about a man who woke from a 19 year coma last month. He was in a car accident 19 years ago this month which killed the other occupant of the car and put him into a coma. He was 20 at the time. Now, he’s 39 and a quadriplegic, but he’s out of the coma. Interestingly enough, the car accident occured on Friday the Thirteenth and he came out of the coma on a Friday the Thirteenth as well.
Now, I find myself trying to imagine what it must be like for him. He’s got a 19 year-old daughter that he’s never met. He has to learn how to function again and, hopefully, regain at least partial use of his arms and legs. Then, he’ll have to find a way to get by financially for what looks like a fairly long life. It’s hard to imagine the struggles he’s about to face.

And, I have to admit, it strikes me that this is a great idea for a very, very compelling story. Not really fantasy or science-fiction fare, but, still, it’s a great premise for a potentially touching and inspiring story.
