Comatose Woman Unexpectedly Awakens, Asks for Water

Shiela Lewis

(LifeSiteNews) – Sheila Lewis was in a coma and hadn’t had anything to eat or drink for 12 days. Her family expected her to die, but instead she woke up and asked for a glass of water. Now she’ll be able to celebrate Christmas with her family. On Labor Day, Sheila, a grandmother, began to rapidly lose her memory.

“She could not grasp what day it was,” daughter Brandy Arends told Forum News Service. She says they “instantly” know something was very wrong.

Indeed, something was very wrong. “She kept saying my brain is in a fog,” Chasity Brandt, another of Sheila’s daughters, shared with WDAY-TV’s Kevin Wallevand. She forgot her grandchildren’s names, then her daughters’ names, then her own name.

In short order, Sheila was taken to a Fargo hospital, but her condition only worsened. She lost the ability to speak. Breathing and feeding tubes were put in. She was placed in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. CONTINUE
