BOCA RATON, Fla. —  A Florida mother says she’s savoring every day of her busy life after doctors believed she had died less than a month ago.

The Boca Raton mother of two told The Associated Press on Monday she has a deep appreciation for each new day, no matter how routine.

The woman went without a pulse for 45 minutes following complications from a routine cesarean section after she gave birth to healthy baby girl.

Doctors told her family she had not survived and to say their final farewells before they officially pronounced her dead. Moments later, her heart began beating again.

Medical officials called her survival a double miracle because she has no brain damage despite going for so long without a pulse.
