  1. I have deep pain in my heart but my mother is now in heaven. I don't know how anyone gets through without their mom. I hope that as time goes by some of the pain, anger, guilt and resentment will ease. Thank you all for your advice and comments. I feel this was a battle we couldn't win and am deeply saddened by her death.
  2. Hello, I am new here and in need of some information as my family and I are in complete sadness and really scared.

    My mother was in a car accident. Her heart stopped twice. They opened her chest to restart heart again & repair an organ. She had nonstop seizures 12+ hours. She has a dislocated C1 and C2 because the ligaments snapped and there is also spinal injury. She sometimes reacts to blinking & tears sometimes roll down when she hears us. We feel she still understands. The doctors tell us that they are pretty sure she has no brain activity or awareness. She is not sedated anymore & only is being given pain medicine and seizure medicine.

    My questions are:
    Has anybody experienced someone not being aware for several days and then regained consciousness?
    Does reactions like tears mean she can still hear us?
    She can't move or tries to move any part of her body, is there any chance that she will not be paralyzed completely?

    Thank you,
    Gabriela
