The man whispers to his unconscious wife, but she hears everything…

After being discovered unresponsive in her home, a woman went into a coma. As the plug was removed from her life support, her husband went down and spoke something into her ear. He had no idea she could hear everything he said and was ready to fight.

Steven Brown Pellettiere-Swapp, 45, discovered his mother, Lyndee Brown Pellettiere-Swapp, unconscious in her Arizona home. Lyndee was taken to Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center after dialing 911 immediately. Lyndee suffered convulsions for five days before falling into a coma, where she remained for 12 days, according to the Mirror.

Lyndee’s husband, Steve, daughter Amanda, and son Steven prayed for a miracle, but doctors said there was nothing else they could do and advised Lyndee to be removed from life support. The family made the difficult decision to cut the cord in order to respect Lyndee’s wishes. «My family knows I am an avid organ donor, so when my organs started failing, they made the decision—it was time to make that decision,» Lyndee explained later.

Lyndee’s family arrived to say their final goodbyes, unaware that Lyndee could hear everything they said. «I remember people talking to me,» Lyndee said. «I remember my niece reading to me when I had visitors.» She also recalls the doctors talking about her impending death and informing her family about what to expect when she died.

«[Doctors] warned [my family] that if they turned off my life support, I’d start making noises.» It was very upsetting. I couldn’t get up. I couldn’t speak or respond. «All I could hear were conversations about and around me,» Lyndee explained. «I recall a doctor teasing me and telling my family that I wasn’t responding.»

Lyndee felt she needed to speak up in order to save her life, but she failed. «What I was saying was obvious to me, but not to them,» she explained. Her husband’s words in her ear when he thought she was going to die were all the motivation she needed to keep going.

«They withdrew all the tubes as he requested,» she claimed, adding that a doctor was waiting to “pronounce her dead” and an organ donation team was waiting to receive her organs. But her husband, Steve, was not prepared for her to leave him. Steve begged Lyndee in hushed tones, reminding her of a fact she was going to make everyone aware of.

Lyndee awoke from a coma 12 days later, saying three words that shocked her entire family. «I’m a warrior,» she managed to say after Steve revealed the truth. According to the Daily Mail, Lyndee added, «I was finally able to get out, ‘I’m a fighter,’ which is what my husband was saying in my ear when I came up from my coma after being taken off life support.» «’I need you to fight,’ he kept saying.»

Steve, stunned, dashed to the doctor. “She’s doing everything you said she wouldn’t do,” my husband said. Lyndee related her experience. According to AZ Family, despite all odds and medical predictions, Lyndee was awake and responsive. Amanda arrived at the hospital, unsure of what was going on and believing her mother had died.

«I looked at her, and she just said, ‘Hi,’ and I just went to my knees,’ Amanda cried, recalling how she sobbed after receiving the shock of her life. Lyndee was eventually released from the hospital, but she wasn’t out of the woods. Despite her remarkable recovery, she faced a number of health issues and challenges.

Lyndee had to relearn how to walk and eat. «They sent me home with home healthcare so that I could continue to learn everything,» she explained. She also had numerous follow-up surgeries and hospital stays, and the experience left her with PTSD.

Over two years later, Lyndee Brown Pellettiere-Swapp still had “no answers” about why she went unconscious or how she recovered so quickly. But there was one thing she was certain of and wanted others to be aware of. «Because you’re unconscious, doesn’t mean you can’t hear,» she explained. «If you find yourself in this situation, talk to your loved ones.» They are aware of your presence.

Her family’s experience taught them an important lesson for others. «Everything is up for grabs.» «You could wake up one day and everything is perfect, and the next day your life is a wreck,» Lyndee’s son Steven explained. «Keep your family close and don’t let them leave,» he advised. «I don’t take coming home and kissing my mother for granted,» Steven said. «I see her and talk to her every day when I get home from work.» Go hug your loved ones and encourage others to do the same, because you never know when it will be your last chance.
