Niko Ramirez, of Victoria, is rolled on his side after waking up. His mother, Doriann, and nurses at TIRR Memorial Hermann rehabilitation hospital in Houston work with him. Ramirez was in a motorcycle wreck in May. He flipped several times and landed headfirst in a ditch. He was not wearing a a helmet. Doctors told his family he wasn't going to make it, but since then, he has learned to move his arms and legs again and is communicating through eye movement. He is also learning how to swallow again.
