  1. Poor thing… She looks like she’s been through complete hell. Hope she gets to start living a full life again as soon as possible.

  2. I was fully intubated in November for a throat procedure with everything but the pump (standby), just posi-pressure air.

    That’s not even 1/3 of the required equipment.

    It took almost 30 minutes to get that fucking alien out of my lugs and off my face without drowning in my own spittle.

    You get a better scene out of The Matrix.

    Nice story on the lady though.

  3. It’s a blessing that woman can breathe again. It seems a little invasive of her privacy to film her in her hospital bed though.

  4. Wow. Praise God for giving people the inspiration to figure these things out and for being able to help people like this!

  5. Sweet! She looked so stunned. I’m so happy for her! Her success makes it easier to treat the next person. 🙂 And God bless the person who gave her the gift.

    Thank G-d for Obamacare

    Under Obummercare she wouldn’t have received a new lung, instead she would be given a chill pill while waiting to go before the death panel which Trump disbanded. Go Trump! He opened up the way for experimental drugs for those hurting like this poor woman. Thankful we have doctors that are miracle workers!

  7. @Beachmom – Consider the pro-social motivations within Christianity versus those within the secular community. British author Malcolm Muggeridge said, “I’ve spent a number of years in India and Africa where I found much righteous endeavour undertaken by Christians of all denominations; but I never, as it happens, came across a hospital or orphanage run by the Fabian Society [a British socialist organization], or a humanist leper colony.” 106 of the first 108 colleges were started on the Christian faith. By the close of 1860 there were 246 colleges in America. Seventeen of these were state institutions; almost every other one was founded by Christian denominations or by individuals who avowed a religious purpose.
