just another update, sorry for all the posts!

well today i was in just sitting with my gorgeous buttercup, i was talking to her just about everything then as i was about to leave i held her hand and just told her how much i love her and get better we are all thinking of her but will give her time to rest and get better, and i went to stand up i felt a little squeeze at my hand!! i was so happy, hopefully this means shes starting to come out slowly.

just thought i would share this with you, other than that theres no change, which is good news i guess, no worse!

lets just keep praying and hope she will be back with us again soon, i know she can do this shes a fighter

hugs

maddie

    First off, thank you so much Maddie for keeping us up to date on our dear little Buttercup.

     If it were not for you we would not have any info. So please post as much as you can.

        Wow, I have tears in my eye, that little squeeze she gave you must have given you goosebumps eh!!

      Keep talking to her hon cause she can hear!!! That's the first sense to come back.

        I miss her so much and want her back dearly. I loved our chats together and i miss them and her.

         I continue my daily praying for her and have asked God to give her strength to get thru all this.

            She will be back of that I am sure!!!

I love you babydoll

Thanks once again Maddie. I am thankful that she has such a wonderful friend like yourself.

I was kept in a medically drug induced coma for 2 weeks or so a few years ago and once they stopped the meds and allowed me to come around it took me 2 or 3 days to pull myself back to the point where I would consistently respond and then it was another day or 2 before I didn't feel like I was 3/4 of the way drunk.

It takes awhile before you start feeling like your brain is firing on all cylinders. Also do not be shocked if she ends up talking about things that really happened while she was in her coma as well as things that didn't but still seem real to her.

I do not recall if her coma was induced or natural and I don't know if it happens to people who are in a "natural" coma but I can tell you from experience the drug induced ones can produce some really vivid "dreams" as well as hallucinations, etc as you struggle to come out of it.

Anyway I too am glad she is back and hope that everything from here on out goes very well.

I'm so happy to hear that Buttercup is awake. Bless her heart. I guess her body just needed some rest.

Buttercup I'm still thinking about you and praying for you. You take care sweetie.

Thank you for the update Maddie.

love and hugs

That is Fantastic news Spinalproblem, thank you so much for letting us know.

Can you pass on to Sweet Buttercup that I am thinking of her and she is in my prayers. I know I can not hug her so you will have to do it for me, gentle (((((((((((hugs)))))))))))) just for Buttercup. Please let her know that we all can not wait for her to be chatting with us on here again soon xxxxxx

Spinal thank you for making my day just that little bit happier, I have been wondering how Buttercup was doing.

Its a good thing you were there for her support SP. Even if she doesn't remember it, there's a very good chance she did hear you. There was a situation in which a friend of mine hit by a truck and was in a coma, and with family and friends there, he came out of it (he wasn't expected to come out and recover) in a few days, making a full recovery. I believe our loved ones DO hear us when they are in that state.

Her life is forever changed because of you SP and its something positive that will stay with her forever cool
