Michael Schumacher’s press secretary reported that the former Formula 1 driver is getting better. He is being brought out of his artificial coma he had been put into after an urgent operation which was conducted as a result of a serious head injury received in a skiing accident which happened in France on December 29, 2013. And finally, Sabine Kehm, the representative of the famous racing pilot, reported to the Independent magazine that doctors started slowly reducing the level of sedation which has been keeping him in the induced coma. However, as it was stated by Sabine, this process might take a lot of time. Apart from that, she mentioned that Schumacher started showing encouraging signs of improvement.
Right after the operation, when Michael Schumacher had just been taken to the Grenoble University Hospital, the doctors were afraid of making any forecasts: “We are talking about extremely serious brain injuries. We are working hour-by-hour trying to win some time. We cannot tell what the outcome will be yet”. Michael Schumacher was not giving up and right now there are some positive changes showing his health is getting better and he began breathing himself.
Let us remind that the doctors have been bringing the seven-time world champion out of coma for 2 months already and it’s not a fast process. Formula 1 pilots give all support they can to their colleague. It was reported that Williams driver Felipe Massa will be participating in the Australian Gran Prix wearing a special helmet with Michael Schumacher’s initials. Ferrari team publishes on its site messages from Michael’s fans, colleagues and friends with words of encouragement. No one was left indifferent and the major thing is that everyone believes that Michael Schumacher is going to win in this most important race of his life and will get back to all his friends.
Meanwhile, the pilot’s family expresses their gratitude to everyone for their support on the official site of Michael Schumacher: “We are deeply touched by all the messages to get well soon for Michael which are still being sent from all over the world. This incredible support gives us and him strength. Thank you all so much! We all know Michael is a fighter, and will not give up!”
