If you’ve ever had a family member in a coma you know what an emotional rollercoaster ride it can be, looking for the smallest movements or changes. Megan Lawrence is going through that with her Husband right now. 38 year-old Zach Lawrence was involved in a car accident while traveling for work overseas. The accident left him in a coma, and when he was stable, he was was transferred to Ohio State University Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Megan was hoping being close to his beloved Buckeyes football team would help – but doctors didn’t give Megan and her two children much hope.
So that’s when Megan and her family decided they need to try something, anything to show that he was still with them. Doctors cautioned that these types of trials can be tricky – a small natural movement might be mistaken for a response. The docs suggested trying something he was passionate about….so they placed a button in each of his hands. One button for yes and one for no. And then Megan said something to him that she knew would bring a response.
She simply asked “Do You Like Michigan?” and to the amazement of the doctors her husband pressed the NO button – not once but twice.
Ohio State and the University of Michigan have one of the fiercest and most storied rivalries in college football – It’s like the Long Horns and Sooners. He’s begun making sounds, keeping his eyes open and smiling at his children. And since then therapists have been helping him stand on a treadmill and have been using electric stimulation to move messages from his brain to other parts of his body.
Megan said he’s got a long way to go but, “he’s already come such a long way.”
