The boy’s first drink

He was a young boy who was in a coma. Had been out with his friends drinking and leaned out of the car to throw up. Leaned out on the wrong side while the car was moving, and was hit by an oncoming car. For two weeks he hovered and no one expected him to make it. One morning he woke up, and just like that, he was able to say some simple words. The next day, I was feeding the boy ice cream. One of my patients in the ICU. The brain is pretty amazing.
