Monica McGeachie, resident of Johnstone, plunged from a first-floor window in Ibiza, where she had been celebrating her 30th birthday with friends and family is now alert and responding to conversation according to Scottish media.
Monica had been in an induced coma since Saturday, July 28, after falling through a window which didn’t have a glass pane in it.
Monica’s sister JoAnne has confirmed that her sister is now out of a coma and that the doctors are said to be astonished by Monica’s progress. “Monica is responding so well to treatment and she knows exactly who she is, where she is and what happened. “ JoAnne stated, adding “She isn’t able to talk yet but she is able to mouth to us and respond to questions. It has blown us all away. Just days ago, it was a completely different situation. The doctors are amazed by how well she is doing and how she is able to recognise us.”
A friend set up a JustGiving page to help the family meet the costs of travelling to Spain and paying for accommodation, which quickly surpassed its original target of £5,000. “The support we’ve been given is amazing.” JoAnne declared.
