A husband in China has regained his cognizant from a five-year coma after his wife nursed him devotedly over 20 hours per day for almost 2,000 days.
Li Zhihua, from Xiangyang in Hubei Province, sustained serious brain injuries in a traffic accident in 2013. His wife turned into his sole carer afterward and she dozed just a few hours every day so as to clean, feed and talk with him. The first thing Mr. Li said to his wife after waking up was: ‘Wife, I love you!’
As indicated by reports, Mr. Li was knocked down by a motorbike in August 2013, while riding a bike to work. Describing his condition, Dr. Wan Qing’ an told reporters: ‘When he was taken to the hospital, he was in a vegetative state. He could not respond to anything.’
His better half, 57-year-old Zhang Guihuan, said: ‘The doctor told me it was possible that he would be in a persistent vegetative state. I was not willing to accept the diagnosis and wanted to prove the doctors wrong.
Day in day out, the decided wife remained alongside Mr. Li’s bed to visit with him and play his fav songs, trusting his condition would improve. The strong-willed lady slept just a few hours per day and took care of Mr. Li in all possible ways. As a result, she lost 10 kilograms (22 pounds) during the course.
Ms. Zhang said in order to feed her significant other, she needed to carefully place nourishment put food into his mouth and then gently pressed his tongue to let him know that he could eat. Mr. Li miraculously regained his conscious last year. The man continued remaining in the hospital in order to undergo recovery treatment.
