Sharista Giles was five months pregnant when a car accident left her in a coma in December. Doctors originally told her family that the she would never wake up, but on Wednesday, the 20-year-old opened her eyes, her aunt told ABC News. "The doctors were telling us there was nothing else they could do," said Beverly Giles, 49, of Madisonville, Tennessee. "They already gave up hope. We never gave up. She's fought this hard." abcnews.go.com...
Doctors were forced to deliver the baby prematurely in January, but Sharista's family hasn't named him yet. For now, they call him "Baby L," Giles said, adding that he was less than two pounds when he was born, but now weighs 6 pounds and 4 ounces.
Sharista blinked, gave her family members' hands a squeeze when they tickled her and followed her father around with her eyes, Giles said. "He showed her a picture of her baby, and she followed the picture," she said.
"When he turned around to put it back on the bulletin board, she turned her neck, her whole head trying to follow and find the picture again."

What a heart wrenching situation. Oh I am so sending my deepest thoughts for her to awaken. They need to put that baby in with her where she can feel him for real then she'll be yanked right out of her coma, we dare to hope. Please keep us informed of her progress?
