TRK's blog imagines what it must be like being an observer in the heavenly court.
I imagine the following scenario.
As promised by Hadassah hospital neurosurgeons, Monday morning, Sharon is slowly awakened from his medically induced coma. Then the miracle occurs. His blood pressure starts returning to normal, neurological electrical impulses start flashing around in his brain, the CAT scan shows no signs of damage whatsoever...
And then, with his sons Omri and Gilad at his side, and to the amazement of the senior medical staff at Hadassah, Arik smiles and slowly says, "Why is everyone staring at me?"
The rejoicing in Israel is unparalleled as the doctors hail his recovery as nothing short of a medical miracle.
His usual Arik Sharon self, he asks to speak to the press on Thursday, ignoring the pleas from his surgeons not to overdo it. 3 TV stations are invited to hear the Prime Minister, as he slowly starts his unrehearsed speech.
Citizens of Israel!
I wish to thank the people of Israel who have cared and prayed so much for my successful recuperation. I'm told that the doctors weren't sure I'd make it, but we (laughing) we showed them, didn't we?
I would like to express my appreciation to Ehud Olmert for standing in as my replacement this past week, and I hope we'll continue to work together for many years to come...after all, we have an election to win in 78 days.
As I lay here in my hospital bed, surrounded by Hadassah's best and brightest doctors, and before the citizens of Israel on TV, I would like to say 2 more things.
Baruch Atta Hashem...HaGomel Lachayavim Tovot...Baruch Atta
Hashem...Shehechiyanu vKiyimanu vHigiyanu Lazman Hazeh!
A thunderous, resounding chorus of "Amen" is heard throughout the land, as Israelis barely keep tears from flowing out of their eyes.
And one more thing...starting tomorrow, Israel is going to liberate Gaza and restart a magnificent enterprise of Jewish settlement!
...at this point, the TV crews quickly shut of their cameras.
Arik Sharon has returned.
Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael
