Man awakes from 19 year coma

One of the first signs of a patient coming out of a coma is masturbation.

yeah, but the thought of all that freely accesible porn when he hears about the internet will keep him with us. A reason to live!

19 years of your life going by in a flash, bet that sucks. Still, wouldn't it be neat to flashforward 100 years into the future to see all the sexy new technology?

that makes me wonder, do you still grow when in a coma? Did someone have to cut his hair and nails every now and then? Will this have any effect on his overall life span? And just for fun, can you die of old age while still in a coma?

Agreed. Just a few highlights of what he missed.

Fall of USSR
Clinton Scandal
September 11
2 Iraq Wars
OJ

That last one is reason enough to go back in a coma though

Does he have full use of his arms/legs? Lying in bed for 19 years would lead to your muscles wasting away, right?

Here's the story for those that don't like links.


“HE STARTED out with ‘Mom’ and surprised her and then it was ‘Pepsi’ and then it was ‘milk.’ And now it’s anything he wants to say,” Stone County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center social director Alesha Badgley said Tuesday.

His mother, Angilee Wallis, called her son’s return to consciousness a miracle: “I couldn’t tell you my first thought, I just fell over on the floor,” she said.

Terry Wallis, now 39, was riding with a friend in July 1984 when their car left the road and plunged into a creek. Wallis and his friend were found the next day underneath a bridge. The friend was dead, and Wallis was comatose.

Wallis’ daughter, Amber, was born shortly before the accident, and the coma dragged on for almost two decades. She is now 19 and her dad has said he wants to walk again, for her. He is a quadriplegic as a result of the crash.

“It’s been hard dealing with it. It’s been hard realizing the man I married can’t be there,” said Wallis’ wife, Sandi. “We all, the whole family, missed out on his company.”

The silence ended June 12 when Wallis uttered his first word. He was able to talk a little more a day later and has improved ever since.

NON-STOP TALKING

Terry’s father, Jerry Wallis, said his son talks almost nonstop now, but it seems as though time stopped for him after the wreck. Terry still believes Ronald Reagan is the president.

Terry has asked to speak to his grandmother, who died several years ago, and even recited her phone number — something everyone else in the family had forgotten.

"You see, he’s still back in 1984,” said Jerry Wallis.
For the Wallis family, Terry’s return to consciousness has been a blessing.
Perry Wallis, Terry’ brother, said “just to put it bluntly, it was pure hell to see your brother laying there, not knowing if you’ll ever talk to him again.”

The timing of the recovery also has raised eyebrows.
“It’s kind of peculiar. He wrecked on Friday the 13th and 19 years later he started talking on Friday the 13th,” Jerry Wallis said.
