Waking From a Coma
One summer, Jennifer Beaver fell from a golf cart, suffering a severe brain bleed. Doctors had to remove half her skull to relieve pressure. Colin Looney, MD, an orthopedic surgeon and friend of Jennifer and her husband, Bill, operated on her. Her prognosis was grim. Bill recalls the rapid shift from joy to uncertainty. Jennifer emerged from a coma, astonishing everyone with her recovery. Dr. Looney was moved by her progress. Jennifer returned to work without major issues and recognizes herself as a “walking miracle.” She remains grateful to her doctors, especially neurosurgeon Lola Chambless, MD.
