A woman suffers three heart attacks, has no brain waves for 17-1/2 hours, and is considered for organ donation -- and then, while being removed from life support, revives -- and is alive, well, and talking today.

There are two possibilities here. Either:
(1) a human being with no brain waves can indeed be restored to 100% normal function, as this woman was (whether due to natural circumstances or divine intervention), or
(2) measurement of brain waves, or absence thereof, by this hospital was innacurate.
Either way, a reported lack of brain waves is not necessarily a trustworthy indicator that all hope for survival and full recovery is lost.
This woman received hyothermia treatment and was kept on life support well past the point at which brain waves ceased, because she was being considered as an organ donor. Those circumstances suggest a possible pathway to recovery for other patients.
In the meantime, we need to consider the implications.
Is it possible, just possible, that other men, women and children have been removed from life support or turned into organ donors -- when their lives still could have been saved?
It's not just possible. It's a certainty.
