Last month, Scott Marr’s son found him unconscious at home, just a day after his 61st birthday. At the hospital, the Nebraska man’s scans showed signs of brain swelling and doctors determined he had probably suffered a stroke.
Marr was hooked up to a breathing machine in intensive care, but his condition only got worse and with no signs of improvement, Doctors said there wasn't any more they could do for him. His daughter, Preston, says none of them wanted him to suffer any longer so they made the decision to pull him off the ventilator. But then the day after the family gathered around him to say goodbye, they got a call that he was responding. Doctors had no explaniation for what was happening.
Then an MRI showed Marr didn't suffer a stroke but actually had a condition called posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome. He was nearly brain dead, made an amazing recovery and now Marr has left the hospital to continue recovering at home. And as KMTV reports, he’s got the perfect new nickname now, “miracle man.” Scott said "I don't want to make this into a huge religious thing, but I'll tell you what, no one has any other explaniation than it was pretty much a miracle."
