WARSAW, Poland — A Polish railway worker who woke up after 19 years in a coma is learning to live again and to understand a politically altered Poland, his wife said Sunday.
"For 19 years he did not move or say anything," Gertruda Grzebska told The Associated Press by phone. "He tried to say things but it couldn't be understood. Sometimes we pretended we understood."
Grzebska, 63, said that for years she fed her husband, Jan, carefully with a spoon and moved his body to prevent bed sores.
"Now he spends his days sitting in a wheelchair and last weekend we took him out for a walk in his wheelchair," she said.
"He was so amazed to see the colorful streets, the goods," she said. "He says the world is prettier now" than it was 19 years ago, when Poland was still under communist rule.
"I could not talk or do anything, now it's much better," Jan Grzebski, 65, said in a weak but clear voice on TVN24 Television, lying in bed at his home in the northern city of Dzialdowo.
