I don't even think a doctor could give you a definitive answer on this one man...I mean, even if she doesn't hear you - is it any less worth saying?
My take is that on some level...if as the previous poster mentioned there was no brain injury (The fact that she's on a ventilator might be a thing)...she would hear you in a manner of speaking.

I'm not just saying that to make you feel any better, but think of it like this;
She's unconscious right?
You ever been asleep and been woken by an alarm?
That thing where sometimes the sound is incorporated into your dream?
If that can happen, then I would say that she might be able to hear you.

But hey, I think you should go in and say whatever you feel like you want to say anyways. That way if she can, she will, you've said everything you've wanted to, and you won't be left with the question of whether or not you "should have".

People in comas have been known to be able to hear those around them. There have been several cases where folks woke up and remembered what their loved ones had said while they were in the coma. I would definitely talk to her.

gl friend, if you feel you have something you would like them to know, or say to them, don't let this opp. pass you by.

Even if they can't hear you, it doesn't make it any less meaningful.

She might not, but you certainly still know her, and are able to talk.

haha I can see why you'd think that and I agree with you. But it's very true. You may not realize it, but you can say so much through your eyes and facial expressions, it's incredible
