F1 Legend, Michael Schumacher was in a coma since half a year or so. He had been in a terrible skiing accident and everyone was praying for his convalescence. The doctors were trying to heal his condition via a range of medical aids and methods.
The tragic accident had left him in an immobile state and he was comatose to boot. The Schumacher family had asked every fan of the race car driver to pray for his quick recovery from the vegetative state he was in.
And somehow besides the efforts of the medicos, the prayers did seem to have an affect since he miraculously came out of his coma. Yet, while he is not in a state of suspended animation, Schumacher is still in a rehabilitative phase.
In a statement, Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm said, “Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore.
“His family would like to explicitly thank all his treating doctors, nurses and therapists in Grenoble as well as the first aiders at the place of the accident, who did an excellent job in those first months.
“The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes to Michael. We are sure it helped him.
“For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye.”
It will take some time before he is a fully functional healthy specimen. Schumacher’s family members have personally thanked the doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel for their tireless efforts to bring him out of his coma.
The family has further requested the public and his fans to allow him his privacy so that the healing process can take place without any delay. Before coming out of the coma, Schumacher was in Grenoble.
But now he is in Lausanne. Schumacher is able to open and close his eyes and he often talks to his spouse and his kids. The skiing accident that befell Schumacher was brutal in its intensity.
His cranium hit a rock and he became unconscious. The man was immediately hospitalized and he had two operations performed on his head in order to remove the blood clots that had congealed in his skull. The coma he entered remained extant for a period of six months.
Finally, his drugs were tapered off to revive him back to consciousness. Today he has shown signs of life by coming out of the static phase. His fans and well-wishers are in ecstasy. They couldn’t be happier since their hero and champion is alive and well and clearly out of danger.
