All hope was gone. Professionals say that eight minutes of flat lining means death. My friend flat lined for ten.
This morning, a month later, I stopped by to see her. Little by little, she is remembering what she saw, when dead and when alive.
“Sherrie!” she said. “Do you know what the first word was that I said when I came back to life?”
I wasn’t with her then so I asked what.
She said her family and friend asked her to say something.
“The first word I said was ‘Miracles. Can you believe that, Sherrie?”
More of the story tomorrow.
