Thankfully and unexpectedly, there was a positive turn in Marguerite’s story. A nurse happened to be in the room observing her when she noticed a movement that signalled that there was brain activity.
Marguerite was in a coma for several weeks before she woke up. She spent a year in hospitals recovering.
She had to relearn how to walk as well how to manage all her bodily functions and how to cope with the cognitive deficits her brain injury had caused.
Marguerite was now visually impaired too. The bleed on her brain was so extensive that it affected her optic nerve. She now has no peripheral vision and can only see straight on.
