Andrew said they made burial arrangements and purchased a headstone when they received a doctor's call with unexpected news.

“The doctor told me I needed to go to the hospital right away. So I inquired whether something was wrong, and he said to me that my mother had just woken up.
I literally dropped the phone. We were supposed to be terminating life support that day,” he said.

Andrew and his wife rushed to the hospital, and his mother informed him she was aware of the people who visited her during the coma.


However, he pointed out that she was not out of the woods and set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for her.

“Please donate and or share our mom’s story, we want her to be able to rebuild her life when she is able. Thank you,” a message on the fundraiser reads.
