18 year old in coma after an asthma attack. Will she come back to normal life?

I am visiting an 18 year old who went into a coma after suffering an asthma attack. She s been like that for 4 weeks. She moves her eyes - but the doctors say that she has no brain function. Her brain stem is working, but apparently not the rest of her brain... what are her chances of waking up? how long might it be? Thank you.

brain functions are very imprtant for the body functions
if brain is not working then it is very difficult to say anything
prognosis is not good
but if god helps in fewer cases
but the time we cant say may be 6 months or long
all will depend on the response given to medicines by body in future
but at present the chances are not good
