    I hope she has come round by now.

    My friend's mother is in comma. The doctors are saying they don't know when she will come out of comma or whether she will make it or not (she will live further or not).

    I hope she has come round by now.

    I hope she has resuscitated by now.

    This morning I was hoping that she had come round by that time.

    Please check my sentences. Can we use "hope" the way I used it?

    If the doctors are saying she is still in a coma, then your sentences don't make much sense. If you want to use "hope", try:

    I hope she pulls through.

    Re: I hope she has come round by now.

    If you're on the way to visit her in hospital and you don't know her medical status, you could say "I hope she's come out of the coma by now".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I hope she has come out of the coma.

    This morning I was hoping that she had come round by that time. (How about this sentence?)

    I thought that "Hope" is followed by simple present tense only. I was confused about using present perfect with it.

    Re: I hope she has come round by now.

    I really don't think we say that people "come round" after being in a coma. We come round from a brief period of unconsciousness or having fainted. The term, as far as I know, for non-medical staff is "to come out of a coma".

    Re: I hope she has come round by now.

    This is sufficient: This morning I was hoping that she had come out of her coma.
