I’ve always wondered who wins the day every Sunday during the NFL Season. Does God or football reign supreme with most Americans on the Lord’s Day? Only God knows. But he must have been smiling down as a medical miracle happened before our eyes during a game in Cincinnati, Ohio recently.
The sports world came to an abrupt stop on Jan. 2, when Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed after a play in a game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Heroic efforts first by the Bills training staff kept him alive. He was rushed to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. That game was halted, as team and league officials mulled over the options for a potential resumption of the game. That never happened, as the league decided to cancel the game.
On Monday, he was transferred to Buffalo General Medical Center to continue his recovery. Miracles have happened along the way. It’s a miracle that Hamlin is still alive. Doctors diagnosed him as having gone into cardiac arrest and he was resuscitated. While in Cincinnati, doctors said he experienced “a remarkable recovery.”
