David Russell was induced into a coma after he fell 12-feet from a barn roof and had to undergo a five-hour operation. He was unable to come out of the coma after the surgery. Doctors informed Helen Russell that if her husband did wake up, he would probably have serious brain damage. But when he heard the words, “Come on granddad, you have got to wake up now,” Russell stirred in his hospital bed and opened his eyes at his wife.
Against all odds, Russell is making a full recovery – after hearing about the new addition to the family. “He’s incredibly proud and thrilled to be a grandfather,” Helen Russell said.
