Real Life "Sleeping Beauty" Awakens from Coma after Husband's Kiss

"Emma, if you can hear me, please just give me a kiss…"

About 10 days after giving birth via C-section to her son, Emma Ray was shopping with her husband Andrew, when she collapsed with a heart attack. Doctors were able to restart her heart; however, Emma had lapsed into a deep coma from which her physicians warned she might not emerge.

For two weeks, Andrew kept vigil at his wife's hospital bed, talking to her, holding her hand and playing recordings of songs from their wedding. He even played Emma recordings of their new baby "crying and gurgling," and their daughter singing and shouting "Wake up Mummy!"

Finally in desperation, Andrew leaned over his wife and pleaded, "Emma, if you can hear me, please just give me a kiss."

"What happened next was beyond my wildest dreams," Andrew recounts. "She turned her head towards mine, puckered up her lips and gave me a little kiss. I couldn't believe it. My heart felt like it was going to leap from my chest—it suddenly felt like a huge weight had been lifted."

Emma's sudden response was just the beginning of a long process of recovery and ongoing rehabilitation. But, two years later, Emma is home with her family and her husband is grateful.

"She can walk quite well holding hands now," says Andrew in the Daily Mail report. "At least our kids still have a mother and I still have a wife."
