Heather Brown of Gladewater went into a coma while she was 34 weeks pregnant.
Her husband, Sean, was serving in Afghanistan and flew home to be with his newborn son and wife, who were both in the hospital.
Baby John is home with Sean and is doing well.
Heather is still in a coma at a hospital in Shreveport but Sean says she is responding by squeezing his hand.
He also says Heather opened her eye last week for about 20 minutes.
Sean brings their son, John, to visit Heather and says she has her own way of showing them she can hear them.
