Miracle Happens When Woman Is Taken Off Life Support And Whispers To Her Husband

No family wants to be left with the difficult decision to pull the plug on a cherished loved one.

When a person falls into a coma and remains unresponsive for days, or even weeks, there’s often not much more doctors can do. In most cases, the life support machine is the only thing keeping the person alive, and even still the quality of life isn’t where it should be. It is in this moment that every family’s nightmare becomes a reality. Do you keep them hooked up to the machines and keep the faith, or do you pull the plug and prepare for the worst?

The Pellettiere-Swapp family was tasked with this difficult decision when their loved one made a miraculous recovery.

Steven Pellettiere-Swapp came home one day to find his 45-year-old mother, Lyndee, unconscious and unresponsive. The woman had slipped into a coma, but was not pronounced brain dead.

After 12 heartbreaking days, doctors stressed to the family that it would be in their best interest to consider taking their mother off life support. Honoring the woman’s wishes of being an organ donor, the family made the decision to pull the plug in hopes that her organs would one day save someone else.

3-Year-Old Girl Joins Man She Thinks Is Santa So He Doesn’t Eat Alone (Video)

Undoubtedly the best characteristic children have is their naivety: They’re too young to be jaded by life, and they appreciate everything with an honest, wide-eyed innocence.

One little girl proved this all too well when she joined a Santa Claus look-alike during his solo breakfast.

Three-year-old Gracie Lynn Wilson from Evansville, IN, was at a Bob Evans diner with her mother when she spotted a round, jolly-looking man enter the restaurant.

With a great white beard, red pants, suspenders and a holiday-themed shirt, the man — later identified as the Eastland Mall’s Santa impersonator — looked exactly like Saint Nick.

When Gracie noticed the man was eating his meal alone, she joined him at his table for some conversation.

The little girl apparently didn’t even ask him for anything; she just sought to keep him company.

“Santa” later told reporters from WFIE News that he thinks Gracie is “quite a special young lady.”

The photos of the encounter have been shared all over the Internet, melting hearts everywhere.

Even though he’s not the real Santa, we have a feeling this little girl will be having a very special Christmas.

The Moment This Father Realizes What His Son Did Is Priceless. Get Out The Tissues And Watch.

When a child makes a promise to their parents, usually they are full of good intentions, even if they know they can’t fulfill said promise. This man was only 8 years-old when he promised to do something for his father. Now, years later, he ensured that he made good on what he said when he was a little boy. Years ago, he said he was going to give his father a ’57 Chevy Bel-Air on his 57th birthday. Decades passed and most people forgot about that adorable promise the little boy made to his daddy. The son, however, remembered.

There was a surprise waiting for this dad on his birthday…

You have to watch this father’s reaction for yourself. It’s so sweet and genuine, the months of hard work that this son had to put in to surprise his dad with this gift would have been so worth it.

It wasn’t an easy task, but he found a way to make sure his father received that car on his birthday. It meant so much to his father to receive it, but it was also very important for this son to give it to him.  “I was pulling 60 hour work weeks over 6 days a week for a few months so I could buy this for him.”

Someone give this man a Son Of The Year award.

As a thank you for years of love, support and guidance, he gave his father this car.

His reaction makes it all worth it.

Source: Reddit We only are lucky enough to get one family in this life. They come in all shapes and sizes, but we should love them all the same. What this son did for his dad is absolutely unbelievable. The love that they share is so touching; click below and share it with your own loved ones.

While Looking For Survivors After A Mudslide, They Saw Something Heartbreaking

Disaster struck in Brazil last Thursday when two mining dams collapsed, unleashing gallons of mud into the small town of Bento Rodrigues. Several townspeople are dead and even more are missing, but as rescuers quickly learned, humans weren’t the only ones devastated by the disaster.

While looking for survivors, firefighters came across a dog that somehow managed to live after being washed away by the mudslide, only to get stuck up to her chest in thick sludge. Fortunately for the brave pup, help was on its way.

As you can see, the damage is horrific.

The entire town is covered in layers of thick mud, and at this point, the prospect of finding survivors looks grim.

But one day, just as they were about to give up hope, rescuers came across a strong little survivor who was in need of saving.

Getty Images

The stranded dog had clearly been swept away by the unforgiving mudslide, but somehow, she pulled through. All she needed was a helping hand.

Getty Images

She was weak, so her new buddy carried her away from the scene so that she could be cleaned up.

And this pup isn’t the only survivor. Hundreds of animals have been rescued from this nightmare, and they’re being cared for by generous volunteers from the Animal Rights Defense Institute.

Even in the face of so much heartbreak, these rescuers provide survivors with something invaluable: the opportunity to reunite with their faithful friends.

Reunions like this wouldn’t be possible without their tireless efforts. “One thing is certain,” one volunteer writes. “We at ARDI, along with the help of dedicated veterinarians, will continue to stand by these animals.”

(via The Dodo)

Anyone who shares their life with a pet knows that they quickly become family. In times of crisis, it’s critical that volunteers and rescue workers keep their eyes peeled for four-legged friends who are in dire need of help. Not only does it make a difference in the animals’ lives, but it also leaves a lasting impact on the humans who love them.

3. Athena’s last message spans the length of the whole back of the mirror, here are excerpts from it:

“Happiness depends upon ourselves.

“Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story.

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. Happiness is a direction not a destination.

“Thank you for existing. Be happy, be free, believe, forever young.

“You know my name, not my story.

“You have heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through.

“Love is like glass, looks so lovely, but it’s easy to shatter.

“Love is rare, life is strange, nothing lasts and people change.

“Every day is special, so make the most of it. You could get a life-ending illness tomorrow so make the most of every day.

“Life is only bad if you make it bad.

“If someone loves you then they wouldn’t let you slip away no matter how hard the situation is.

“Remember that life is full of ups and downs, without the downs the ups don’t mean anything.

“I’m waiting to fall in love with someone I can open my heart to.

“Love is not about who you can see spending your future with it’s about who you can’t see spending your life without.

“Life is a game for everyone but love is the only prize.”

4. The 12-year-old’s illness came on suddenly when she discovered a lump on her head last year. She collapsed and blacked out at Christmas. Over the last few months she went through intense chemotherapy.

Ducklings Stuck Down A Storm Drain Get Rescued As Their Concerned Mom Looks On

A team of firefighters in Auckland, New Zealand, banded together to help a distraught mother duck after her ducklings fell down a storm drain. The team of heroes formed an assembly line to pull the tiny babies out while the notably anxious mom duck watched.

The moment the chirping cuties are reunited with their mother is one that will put a huge smile on your face.

I’m so glad someone took the time to get a closer look at that drain once they heard the quacks coming from it. It’s people like these fine firefighters that make the world a better place. I’m sure this momma duck will be forever grateful for their kindness.
