Three-Year-Old Makes Miraculous Recovery
Three-year-old Dylan Askin’s lungs collapsed last Christmas Day. His health started to go downhill. The boy was then diagnosed with a rare type of lung cancer. It caused cysts to grow on the lungs. The formal name is pulmonary langerhans cell histiocytosis. After showing some signs of improvement it was determined that the cysts had burst resulting in causing his lungs to be starved from oxygen.
The boy had his treatment at Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, England. During his time there his parents, Kerry and Mike Askin were given more bad news. Dylan had developed an infection causing his temperature to reach very scary levels. This was followed by the Askins being told that Dylan’s organs were failing and that nothing more could be done. His parents then faced the decision of when to turn their son’s life support off.
The mother told The Telegraph, “He’s so close to his brothers it was such a hard decision, but the doctors said his organs were failing and there was nothing they could do. We baptized him and said our final goodbyes and at 8am on the Saturday they turned his muscle sedatives off in preparation for the ventilator to be switched off. But when they did that suddenly he started struggling in his bed. We thought he was brain dead from oxygen starvation, so he shouldn’t have been moving.”
Blood tests were then ordered and they resulted in showing that Dylan’s organs weren’t failing at all. The young boy spent three more weeks in intensive care. He was then sent home.
The parents had previously told his brother that Dylan wasn’t coming home. Kerry said, “When we explained that he had gotten better the brother said: ‘Oh, so he’s like Jesus then.'” She told the brother, “you’re not wrong. He had just risen from the dead.”
