When they say miracles are real, it’s true and a couple from North Carolina were able to experience that firsthand. Ryan Marlow, a 37-year-old pastor from North Carolina, was admitted to the hospital after suffering a rare bacterial infection called listeria. Due to his condition, he spent a fortnight in the hospital, getting the medical care he needs for his recovery, reported Ladbible. But things took a violent turn when the doctors told his wife, Megan Marlow, that her husband’s condition had worsened, and that the swelling in the brain had led to a ‘neurological death.’ Megan mentioned in one of her Facebook live streams that her husband was declared brain dead by the doctors.
The devastated spouse was dealing with the grief of losing her loved one, along with their family members. Since Marlow was a registered organ donor, the medical authorities at the hospital stated that they would keep him on life support while they arranged for recipients of his organs. Marlow’s family was disheartened over the news and decided to gather at the hospital on 30th August to bid their final goodbyes to Marlow.
