When Angie Dortch was brought in to the ER at the University of Louisville Level I Trauma Center, her only identification was from a visitor’s sticker on her shirt which included the elementary school’s name where she had been volunteering moments before the wreck. Her purse along with its contents, which included identification, whipped to the rear of my car upon impact and so she was admitted as “Jane Doe”. Assessed as a 3 out of a possible 15 on the Glasgow coma scale, Angie would remain in a comatose state for ten days through 12 surgeries and 2 battles with pneumonia. The years that accompanied her recovery and rehabilitation were filled with grief and gratitude. Grief for the life that she lost one cold, rainy October morning when she was in a head- on collision with a semi-truck, and gratitude for the re-birth she found one warm, sunny, spring day in the frolicking leaves of a yellow, bearded iris. Emerging: From Coma to Presence is her story of perseverance and faith.
