Inexplicable recovery could lead to new saint
By Gerry Bellett, Canwest News Service, July 12, 2009
R ev. John Horgan knew a dying man when he saw one. Years of working as a hospital chaplain had seen to that.
So when he saw Peter Andersen in Vancouver General's intensive care unit on the afternoon of July 3, 2008, he didn't need anyone to tell him that Andersen's situation was grave.
His bloodstream was teeming with the bacteria from two flesh-eating diseases. His kidneys and other organs had failed. He appeared to be within hours of dying.
etc.x blah blah blah, don't want to waste much space here.
