A man in China has regained consciousness from a five-year coma after his partner dedicated him for more than 20 hours a day for almost 2000 days a day.
Li Zhihua, from Xiangyang in Hubei Province, suffered a serious brain injury in 2013 in a traffic accident. His wife then became his sole caretaker, and she slept only two to three hours a day to clean, feed, and talk to him.
The first thing Mr. Li said to his wife after waking up was: & # 39; Woman, I love you! & # 39;

The man woke up last year from a five-year coma after his wife looked after him day and night
His wife, 57-year-old Zhang Guihuan, said she was unwilling to accept the fact that her husband was in a persistent vegetative state and wanted to prove that doctors were wrong
According to reports, Mr. Li was knocked down by a motorcycle in August 2013 while driving to work.
Dr. Wan Qing & # 39; an described his condition and told reporters: & # 39; When he was taken to the hospital, he was in a vegetative state. He couldn't respond to anything. & # 39;
His wife, 57-year-old Zhang Guihuan, remembered: & The doctor told me that it was possible that he would be in a persistent vegetative state. & # 39;
She said she was not prepared to accept the diagnosis and wanted to prove that the doctors were wrong.
After Mr. Li regained consciousness, he remained in the hospital to follow recovery programs
Day after day, the determined husband stayed next to Mr. Li's bed to talk to him and play his favorite songs, hoping that his condition would improve.
& # 39; These things were very useful to stimulate his nervous system & # 39 ;, said Dr. Wan.
The wayward woman slept only two to three hours a day and took care of Mr. Li in every way. As a result, she lost 10 kilograms (22 pounds) during the course.
Mrs. Zhang said that in order to feed her husband, she had to carefully put food into his month and then gently press his tongue to let him know that he could eat.
Li miraculously regained consciousness last year.
The man stayed in the hospital to receive recovery treatment.
