LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – An Elizabethtown second grader slept for 11 days straight inside Norton Children’s hospital.
Doctors still don’t know what caused it, but now that their child is awake, his family is ready to move forward.
Wyatt Shaw was the life of the party.
"He was awesome, he stole the show. He stole the last dance- he took the bride away from the groom,” Amy Thompson, Shaw’s mother, said.
Seven-year-old Wyatt made his mark as the ring bearer at a wedding two weeks ago. But 48 hours later he found himself in the hospital, unable to stay awake.
"I tried to wake him up and he kept falling back asleep. I kept "Wyatt" "Wyatt" "Wyatt" and then he fell back asleep again,” Thompson said.
Wyatt was rushed to Norton Children's where he went under observation. While mires monitoring his brain activity, the second-grader slept and slept for 11 days.
Thompson said, "When he would open his eyes it didn't look like he was there and it was terrifying."
