I was inspired by one of you clever people to have a male character in my story that comes into the pub that it is set in. His wife is in a coma and he comes into the pub as an escape from what is going on in his life. I have no knowledge whatsoever on comas' and have tried to use Google to get an understanding of it and try and develop this idea but I'm more confused now than I was before! She has been in a coma for a couple of months and will be for a few more yet but why and how? Has anyone had an experience, know somebody that has or even just have a little knowledge on the subject and be able to enlighten me a little?
