Wow. Kevin Everett almost died. Just24 hours ago, his prognosis from a severe spinal injury was worst than bleak. He wasn’t breathign on his own and doctors wonderedif he would live.
Today, not long after a visit by several teammates, the Buffalo Bills backup tight end voluntarily moved a limb. Suddenly, doctors were talking of the miraculous.
“Based on our experience, the fact that he’s moving so well, so early after such a catastrophic injury means he will walk again,” said Dr. Barth Green, chairman of the department of neurological surgery at the University of Miami school of medicine.
“It’s totally spectacular, totally unexpected,” Green told The Associated Press by telephone from Miami.
Some of us know that miracles happen every day. Others have to be knocked across the head with one. Hope this one didn’t hurt too much.
