The staff seemed pleasant and attentive to her needs, and over the course of the next several weeks, I realized we had made the right decision, and she was being well taken care of. Ron and I met with the speech pathologist at the rehabilitation center, and he suggested a coma stimulation program for Sharon.

A few hours later Michelle called back and told us she had contacted Sharon’s spirit and her spirit did not want to come back.
