Woman regains consciousness after six years in coma

Categories: eDrugSearch.com | Posted On:

This happened last week but in case you didn’t see the story: A Colorado Springs woman woke up from a six-year coma for three days before slipping back into unconsciousness. Before the woman fell back into the coma, she spoke with her family — and a local television station.

According to ABC News:

“I’m fine,” Christa Lilly told her mother on Sunday — her first words in eight months. She has awakened four other times for briefer periods since suffering a heart attack and stroke in November of 2000.

“I think it’s wonderful. It makes me so happy,” Lilly told television station KKTV-TV. She also got to see youngest daughter, Chelcey, now 12 years old, and three grandchildren.
