Man wakes up from 12-year coma after his elderly mom took care of him for more than a decade
Wang Shubao, a Chinese man, was involved in a life-threatening accident that left him in a coma for more than a decade. His mother took care of him the entire time.
In 2006, the man was in a crash in Shouguang in the Shandong province in China. Unfortunately, the impact was so severe that he was left in a coma. Apart from that, he has quadriplegia.
Thankfully, his 75-year-old mother named Wei Mingying never gave up on him and sacrificed everything she had, including all her savings, to take care of him.
WHAT IS A COMA?
As WebMD reported a coma could be defined as a prolonged state of unconsciousness caused by a brain injury, which can be temporary or reversible. Even though the person in coma looks like they are asleep, they cannot be awakened by any stimulation.
In October, Wei reported the first breakthrough in Wang’s coma as he smiled. Earlier this month, Wang woke up and the first person he saw was his mother, who was crying out of happiness at his bedside.
IN SERIOUS DEBT
After taking care of him for more than 10 years, she is in debt of about $17,000. At some point, Wei was so poor that she couldn’t even buy food for herself for an entire month. She revealed that all she did was drinking water to alleviate the hunger, admitting that her mouth and tongue were extremely dry. Everything is worth it now that her beloved son is awake.
As Daily Mail reported, Wei has a routine. She normally wakes up at five in the morning to wash his face, bathe and massage him before repositioning him now and then to avoid bedsores to develop. Now that Wang is awake, Wei dreams that he gets better and starts calling her “mother” again.
ANOTHER INSPIRING STORY
While Wei and Wang’s story is uplifting, it is not the first “miracle” that has happened in the history of medicine. Twin girls were born 12 weeks premature and were placed in the NICU. At some point, one of them started having a hard time to breath, her heart rate was unstable, and everybody was expecting the worst outcome.
One of the nurses, however, placed the healthy sister in the same incubator where the frail one was. Soon later, the strong one hugged her sister, and her breathing and vital signs instantly normalized. Nowadays, both girls are safe and sound.
