When Brianne Haltom woke from a medically induced coma, she saw her husband's face and had a thousand questions buzzing in her head.

"I was like, 'Did we have a party?' He was like, 'No, you were in a wreck,' and it all came down on me," said Haltom. "I don't even remember being in a wreck. I don't remember being in a hospital."

Last November, an undiagnosed medical problem called arteriovenous malformation, or AVM, caused Haltom to have a seizure and veer off a Liberty County road into a tree. Her head slammed into the steering wheel when her air bag did not go off. Haltom suffered a brain injury and facial fractures.
