Veneisha Buckley, the mother of Kaylan Dowdie, is celebrating the progress of her daughter after she has been in a coma for weeks as a result of the attack that was launched on her by a group of women.
Even though she is still on the ventilator, she has opened her eyes, and according to her mother, she even smiled.
Buckley had stated that Kaylan’s eyes are much more focused than before, as when she just woke up her eyes were all over the place.
The mother of the 17-year-old has expressed her gratitude, for what she considers as “small mercies”, as Kaylan was once non-responsive as she had suffered badly from the beating, and even got a stab in her neck.
Veneisha has also thanked those persons who went into prayer for her daughter, and she even mentioned that the situation, has made her more God-fearing.
The five women, of the Barbican address, who have been charged with wounding the teen with intent, have been scheduled to return to court on December 9.
