Found this to be an amazing story. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/...n-by-mimicking-baby-daughter/?test=latestnews A young father who was trapped in his own body after a stroke learned to walk and talk again – by copying his baby daughter. Mark Ellis was just 22 when he suffered a stroke and developed locked-in syndrome – a condition that leaves the sufferer's brain alert but their body paralyzed. The sudden stroke in August 2010 left him completely helpless, forcing him to communicate by rolling his eyes. A previously fit and healthy young man, doctors induced him into a coma and told his shocked family it was unlikely he would survive. Just two weeks earlier, his wife Amy, 32, had given birth to their daughter Lola-Rose. Mark amazed his doctors when eight months later he left the hospital and began learning how to talk and walk again – by mimicking his baby daughter.
