A MUM-of-three was put into a coma after being unable to breathe in undiagnosed asthma in the middle of the night.
44-year-old Lisa Spence was taken to hospital following the closure of her airway – and coughed in pain as medical professionals inquired what was wrong.
Her condition worsened rapidly – and doctors pulled aside husband Rory (45) and asked, "This is really serious now, do we have your permission to put her into a coma?"
Rory from Guisborough felt like an "absolute terror" that her children would grow up without a mother.
He told Teeside Live, "I went to bed, she woke me up early in the morning and said she can not breathe.
"Her heart rate was absolutely crazy, and next you knew she was getting back to life.
I had gone to bed, she woke me in the early morning and said she could not breathe
"I knew things were getting pretty serious then, and then they decided to transfer them to the High Dependency Department.
"She spent the day and night there."
Lisa completely recovered after five days in a coma at the James Cook University Hospital.
The doctors concluded that the diagnosis of an asthma wind had been made worse by an infection.
It was concluded that she had diagnosed asthma, which was exacerbated by infection.
Rory added, "Without the team of counselors, doctors, nurses and other helpers, she just would not be here.

"The NHS sometimes gets a stick, blaming the government, not the employees, they are just professionals and surpassing their duty.
"I want to make more people aware of how asthma can make a healthy and healthy person into a serious illness, and I also want to draw attention to the fantastic work that the NHS staff is doing."
Rory wants to raise money for asthma UK this month through the London Marathon.
The funds are shared between the charity and the James Cook Hospital.
