|Woman wakes after 16 years|
A woman regained full consciousness on Christmas Eve December 1999 after 16 years in a coma.
Patricia White Bull, 42, slipped into a comma while giving birth to her fourth child at a hospital in New Mexico, US.
Since then she has been unable to speak, swallow or move much.
But on Christmas Eve she suddenly snapped back into consciousness, telling staff who were trying to fix her nursing home bed: "Don't do that."
May this Christmas bring more joy and happiness and many beautiful surprises to everyone and specially to those who have suffered pain.... Love!
