From coma to piano, one woman's remarkable recovery

A woman is recovering from a coma doctors didn't think she would wake up from.
Woman beats coma and gets back behind piano
An Aberdeenshire woman who recovered from a diabetic coma has shocked the medical world with her recovery – she is now back playing her piano.

When she lapsed into a coma, doctors had thought that Angela Whyte would never wake up, reported the Scottish Sun.

However, after a few days, there was the faint glimmer of hope as she opened her eyes to the world again.

Doctors then thought the 27-year-old would be paralysed for life, unable to do basic tasks like feed and dress herself because of brain damage.

But, proving to be a resilient soul, six months on she is able to perform small tasks and is enjoying being at the piano again.

"I'm getting through it. I'm a fighter and I always have been," she told the newspaper.

"I just love music and playing the piano. It helps me to relax and to concentrate."

The NHS states that diabetes is a condition that affects the body's natural ability to process glucose or sugar.
