I work in the medical field. I used to work on an inpatient surgery ward at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi. I cared for a coma patient once. My co-workers told me that coma patients could hear what you say. The poor guy didn't have any family or friends come in to visit. I would try and go in as often as I could during my shifts to turn the television to something entertaining, talk about what was going on outside. I imagined if that was me...I would appreciate it. They ended up sending him to hospice care and I never heard anything else about him.
I do remember that periodically his eyes would open, but they would almost be lifeless. That kinda creeped me out at first, but I got used to it.
