This Week's Miracle

PHOENIX — Eighteen days after his wife instructed doctors to disconnect food and water tubes," Chandler, Arizona resident Jesse Ramirez Jr. "is able to respond to verbal commands. He is aware of who he is and who his family members are." No further information about Ramirez's condition was available. [...] his awakening, which friends called "a miracle," occurred after his sister, parents and other relatives went to court and obtained an emergency order for feeding and hydration tubes to be reinserted, reversing a directive given by his wife, Rebecca Ramirez.

[...] sister, Marlene Ramirez, filed the legal action. She and others involved in the court fight declined comment due to a gag order. [...] friends were jubilant. "He is absolutely and completely a miracle," said Stephanie Simpson, 34.
