The man named Li Zhihua met an accident in 2013 and suffered serious brain injuries. To quote his doctor, “When he was taken to the hospital, he was in a vegetative state. He could not respond to anything.” The wife named Zhang Guihan was told that her husband might not come out of the coma ever. The doctors feared a persistent vegetative state.
The 57-year-old wife never left his side and continued to care for him even after receiving the disheartening news. She took care of him 20 hours a day for 2000 days. There was a time when she just slept for 2-3 hours. The wife played his favorite songs and maintained daily communications. No wonder his first words after getting well were “I love you”.
