Please help, girlfriend was in drug induced coma.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Two weeks ago my girlfriend "Donna" was in a serious car crash. Broken leg, arm, shattered pelvis, jaw, spleen, split liver but more seriously a TBI ( traumatic brain injury).
She was in a drug induced coma for two weeks, they brought her off the drugs on saturday and within a few hours she was awake.
I spent all day with her talking, laughing and playing her her favourite music (also did this throughout the induced coma).
It was simply amazing seeing her awake, but am concerned as her eyes looked almost lifeless. She couldnt focus on anything and is just looking down. The nurses say this is typical and could last a week...?
Can anyone else please please help/reassure me with this experience?
This is simply the worst time of my life, I feel so helpless and afraid for her.
The nurses say she is coming on leaps and bounds but I just dont know.
Its monday today and she is still the same.
Thanks for any replies in advance.
