     My father was in a coma for 3 weeks due to strokes. I spent each day in ICU.I sang and prayed over him, combed his hair, and held his hand. One day, his hand kept floating a few inches in the air. When I gently placed it down, he grabbed my hand tightly, and he was immediately able to communicate using hand squeezes. He lived for 8 more months and always found it funny that he shocked me that day. :)
