From the Headlines ...

Man Trapped In 23-Year 'Coma' Was Conscious

This is just a fascinating story. A guy from Europe was thought to be in a coma for 23 years. However, he was misdiagnosed, and was actually conscious.

Check out the story here.

It does make you wonder, in a small number of cases, if life support has been terminated prematurely, when a patient has been fully aware of what was happening. Almost sounds like something out of a Stephen King novel.

Maybe it will be his next book.
