As most of the regulars are here now, you'll probabally remember a couple of postings I put up about a freinds daughter who was in a coma?

Well.... the last few weeks have been quite amazing. Ray told me about the night when see was given last rites and the ventilator was disconnected due to no meaningfull activity, worst 17 hours of his life, just holding her waiting for the end ..... Reason it was 17 hours is that she miraculously started to breath on her own, and has been ever since. Three weeks ago I went with Ray to see her (been tranferred from Guys to Redhill), and we both noticed some movement of her fingers, trying to squeeze his hand. Also her eyes were occassionally opening.

Fast forward to this week: Becky has been tranferred to a specialist unit to undergo intensive therapy to re-learn all or most she has lost. She is saying a few words, took her weight on her own legs, eating a small amount of processed food and starting to recognise some close family members.

Ray is genuinely of the belief that some form of miracle has taken place, be it from traditional religious praying from hundreds who knew of her plight, or the thoughts and wishes of the dozens of kind people from here who had offered to pray/think/wish her well again.

Bottom line is, although she will undoubtably have some levels of imparement, she is on the mend...... and that may be in part due to the kind thoughts from here? Who knows, but Ray has asked me to pass on his sincere thanks.

Thanks you.

Richard

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC NEWS.

My heart goes out to the family and if my 2 yr old daughter Gabby knew what was what, she'd add hers too. Who says miracles don't happen.

Totally up to the family, but any chance of a pic of little Becky? :)

Al. She's a lovely looking girl, but is painfully thin having been on fluids only for so long, I'll see what Ray says. However I agree it would be nice to put a face to a name.

Ray was here tonight for roast beef and Top Gear, and was updating us on Becky's progress over the last week. Although she is recognising some people, some time, there are still gaps in here memory...... he relayed his visit yesterday when he went into her room and said "hello Becky", she turned and said "you look like my daddy", to which he replied "I am your daddy".... she then threw open her arms and shouted "daddy!!!!" Said it was one of the best days of his life. I think most can relate to that.

Thanks for all the replies here. I've relayed them to Ray, who as I said is very grateful. As alot have mentioned, this may well be a miracle and certainly the best present the family could have wished for. As also noted, it puts a perspective on the trials and tribulations we think we suffer every day. Hopefully Becky will be able to spend one or two days over Christmas at home, then returning to the hospital where she is likely to be for five months.
