I have a friend who was in a coma for 3 weeks, then became "generally conscious" they said.
he responds to move you thumb wiggle your toes etc.. but seems to have no form of consciousness..he opens his eyes and When i talk to him his face is full of expression, you can tell he's trying so hard to do what you ask and to move his hand to show you something. he has a trach but he also makes vocal sounds like he's trying to talk,
but the doctors say now it has been 3 months and his odds of waking are slim.. Does all this stuff not mean he is aware?
also a couple weeks ago his eyes were open and i showed him a picture and his eyes filled with tears..please help me understand what is going on..?
