Unfortunately I think what sapphire said is more likely realistic...an anoxic brain injury will have a very different outcome that a traumatic brain injury where the brain as been battered/bruised...in that case there can be healing of the tissue, in his case from lack of oxygen the tissue is dead. I think false hope is a cruel thing...

However, I am a firm believer in faith and God has performed lots of miracles, the biggest of what we celebrated two weekends ago. I do believe in the powers of prayer.

He does WAY more than they ever said (goes rock climbing, swim, talks, knows who we are and much much much more etc...). Doctors MUST give worst case scenario but millions of kids prove them wrong everyday. So please for the sake of Chase's family, who I am sure are scouring the internet right now looking for hope, can we leave out all the "grim' comments? Like I said MILLIONS of kids suffer brain injuries that are catastrophic only to have MIRACULOUS recoveries. A child's brain is plastic and can adapt, adjust and believe it or not REPAIR when injured. So please I beg you guys to stop with the negative posts. I am 12 years out but to a new parent reading these you are making a horrible terrible tragedy worse with these words.
I agree. It is early and no one knows all the facts. Here is just one story of a little girl who had a near drowning who was pulsless for about 45 minutes and is doing great after a cord blood infusion http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rL7oCPjFlK4. Who knows, maybe they banked Chases cord blood and can try that. I pray they had a safe flight home today and will certainly be following Chase's fight.
