"Miracle Mom" on Today Show Friday

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - An Ohio woman is being called a "miracle mom" after she walked out of the hospital this week. That's because, in January, she was considered dead. 

Lori Smith's little girl, Delilah Grace, was born early New Year's morning and all went well.  For some reason though, Loris body shut down after the birth.  She fell into a coma that lasted almost two weeks and the family decided to take her off the ventilator.

Lori's husband Michael, said, "I went home to get our children and I thought it was for the last time to see their mom." Lori added, "For some reason our life was spared and we're here and whatever that is, I'm not sure yet but I know there's work to be done." 

Doctors say Lori responded to the voice of her children and began to improve. Now, Lori is scheduled to be on the Today Show Friday morning in the 7 a.m. hour.
