I rarely recommend a television show since I rarely get involved in a series. I tend to watch historical and scientific documentaries.
But Monday night, ABC showed a new program called "Miracle Workers". The show's premise is to take hopeless medical cases and turn them over to doctors who use cutting-edge techniques. The first show featured a Houston lady who pretty much had no disks in a portion of her spine. The bone-on-bone that was left pressed on nerves, causing her immense pain.
Also featured was a guy who lost his sight at age 12. He had been given penicillin even though he was fiercely allergic to the drug. The ensuing complications seared his corneas. He was married with three kids, but had never seen his family members.
To make a long story short, both got the desired results. The lady is now pain free. The guy can now see.
I can't wait to see the next show. This is much better than the usual garbage the networks feed us.
