    Coma

    Accordint to Macmillan dictionary, coma is a countable noun.
    That means that for the first time we use it with an indefinite article, and then with a definite one.

    When I visited him last time, he was in a coma. But now he seems to show signs of coming out of the coma.

    Am I right?

    Re: Coma

    Yes, but to be honest we would generally use a pronoun in the second sentence.
