Today we offer a 30-second "Cone of Silence" for Don Adams, 86'd at 82
Article from: "Don Adams: I Believe Prayer Alone Saved My Life in 1943,"The National Enquirer.
"When you're only 16 and waiting to die --- you're scared," TV star Don Adams told The ENQUIRER.
It was 1943. Adams, who had enlisted in the Marines, had caught blackwater fever on Guadalcanal in the South Pacific.
"After being flown to a hospital in Wellington, New Zealand, I was told nothing much could be done for me," he recalled. "I was just left to die.
"That's when I started praying. I prayed night and day that my life might be spared.
"Five days later I woke to find the fever and all its symptoms completely disappeared.
"Before that my body was so badly bloated that it was more than twice its normal size. The doctors had not scientific explanation for what seemed a miraculous recovery. Logic told them I should have died.
"Today there are no physical indications that I ever suffered from such an ordeal.
"It is as though I never had blackwater fever.
"I believe that it was prayer and prayer alone that saved my life.
"At a time like that I knew the only help I could expect would be from God.
"He was my only hope for survival."
"Since that time I've been convinced someone up there is watching over every one of us.
"Miracles have only one origin."
