The renowned car racing champion, Michael Schumacher is being slowly brought out of the coma he has been in for the past one month or so. After a severe skiing accident left him in the hospital, this is the first time the F-1 speeding champ is having his sedatives tapered off.
Schumacher was in a coma that had been brought on by the drugs he was given for healing purposes. After his catastrophic mishap while skiing in the Alps, the champion of champions was shifted to a hospital where he is convalescing under a medically-induced comatose state.
Michael Schumacher is an otherwise super-fit individual who has bagged the Formula One trophy seven times in a row. On December 29th, 2013 he fell and incurred major concussive injuries to the skull. Currently, in a French hospital, a hematoma has been removed from his fractured cranium.
There has been a global wave of sympathy for the winner. Many get-well-soon cards and heartfelt gifts have arrived at the hospital as well as for his family. His family members have thanked the world for the loving-kindness.
However, they have sincerely requested for some privacy regarding the treatment Schumacher is undergoing right now. That is because his life depends on it. They did say this much that his long sleep is being brought to a slow end by curtailing the sedative medicine that was being administered for the past one month.
There is some good news though. Schumacher is now out of his critical state and in stable condition. All our prayers are with him. May he recover from his injuries and regain health and happiness.
