A California man’s unexpected recovery has left doctor’s baffled. A day before his scheduled surgery to have a presumed brain tumor removed, a final head CT exam showed that the mass in his brain had miraculously disappeared.
Paul Wood, a resident of Lodi, in California, started complaining of excruciating headaches and dizziness several months ago, and received several serious diagnoses from doctors. A neurosurgeon at UC San Francisco told him that he had a brain bleeding, while a radiologist told him that his CAT scans showed a brain tumor. Both required risky brain surgery, but a day before the scheduled intervention to have the suspected tumor removed, a fresh CT scan revealed no sign of anything unusual in his brain. Doctors couldn’t, and still cannot explain what happened, but Wood is convinced that it’s nothing short of a miracle from God.
A member of Gravity Church, Paul says that he shared the devastating new of his suspected tumor soon after receiving the doctor’s diagnosis and got an overwhelming response in the form of prayers and well wished from all over California. He believes that it was his and his congregation’s trust in God that made this “miracle” possible.
“My phone is blowing up, my Facebook is prayer after prayer, all over California,” Wood told CBS Sacramento. “It’s a miracle and that is the way God planned it.”
