Dawn Lyn Awake After Being in Coma for Months Following Brain Operation

In a new interview, the former child star's co-star Tina Cole recalls getting a phone call from her after she's awake following what she describes as a 'miracle recovery.'

AceShowbiz - Dawn Lyn is in recovery from a brain operation after being in a coma for months. Known for her role as Ke Douglas on the 1960s sitcom "My Three Sons", the former child actress underwent surgery for the removal of a brain tumour late last year but fell into a coma. She is now awake, in what has been described as a "miracle recovery" by her co-star Tina Cole.

Tina told Fox News Digital on Tuesday, February 28, "I saw a call coming in from her number and I expected it to be her husband John calling – he usually does I was in an indoor soccer game for my grandson and I could hardly hear. I stepped outside and was stunned. I heard her voice. It was raspy, but it was her. I just said, 'Dawn, is that really you?' She said, 'Yes, it's really me.' The tears just came. I was in shock. And it was just so wonderful. I couldn't believe it."

Tina went on to add that the 60-year-old, who is the sister of 1970s teen idol Leif Garrett - "wasn't responding" to her last time she visited her in hospital, but is now hoping to visit her on-screen sibling this coming Easter when she is slated to come home.

She added, "The last time I saw her, she was in a neurological rehab unit, and she still wasn't responding a whole lot to me. So to hear her voice was just thrilling… We had a Christmas miracle when she came out of the coma… And they’re very hopeful that she’ll be home by Easter. Isn't that great? Miracles do happen. Her husband has said the positive feedback made her very happy, and it helped her heal. And I’m just thrilled that there were so many people out there praying and caring about her. I'm a big believer in the strength of prayer. I’m so looking forward to [seeing her] . I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled we all are that she's recovering!"
