Many have made miraculous comebacks, same could happen with Schumacher still. You never know which destiny is written for him. There is no point in speculating.

Obviously the family is keeping many of the updates for themselves. In a situation like this things can change very fast.
This is not the first time - "we" had Phillipe Zanol last year ( or the end of 2012) after his accident testing for Dakar 2013 , from memory he was in a coma for 6 weeks or so; he is still recovering after more than 12 months, so it could be a long road back for Schui, but hopefully one he can drive

Same here but 12 years ago the first of this month....

My Dad could fix anything. I saw him as a person that could do anything but couldn't pull out of the brain damage that he recieved from the heart attack.

Good Luck to Schumacher! I feel for him and his family.

You might want to re-word that . . .

A glimmer of hope. But only a glimmer.

Nobody's denying a report from L'Equipe (re-reported by The Telegraph) that Schumacher is responding to efforts to slooowly bring him out of the induced coma.

It's a process which could take as long as two months. But it sounds as if he's overcoming the very first obstacles.

Quote:
Professor Jean-Luc Truelle, the former head of the neurology department of the Foch hospital in Suresnes, told L'Equipe that a month is "the maximum period before entering into this phase" of coming out of an artificial coma.

He said the process would begin with a sedation phase, then the patient opens his eyes followed by the "re-establishment of some kind of communication, which we verify through simple commands," such as "open your eyes, shut your eyes, squeeze your hand".

"Schumacher appears to show this type of re-awakening," wrote L'Equipe. According to Prof Truelle, the two months following this phase are a period of confusion in which the patient is in a state of "lethargy" and that recovery stage can take "several years in the case of serious head trauma".

And here's glass of cold water thrown on the hope that the old Michael will be back.

Here are two British experts talking to the BBC.

Quote:
"It is extremely unlikely, and I'd honestly say virtually impossible, that the Michael we knew prior to this fall will ever be back," Hartstein said.

"I think that it will have to be considered a triumph of human physical resiliency, and of modern neurointensive care, if Michael is able to walk, feed himself, dress himself, and if he retains significant elements of his previous personality."

Shieff agreed that outcome was "extremely unlikely".

"It is generally accepted that the longer a patient is in a reduced state of consciousness, the less likely they are to make a good recovery," he said.

"It is still possible to regain consciousness, but this is far from certain.

"At best, there will be handicaps in respect of communication, memory, mobility and independence.

"At worst, the patient may remain in 'low arousal state' with little awareness of surroundings, some response to comfort/discomfort, cycles of being alert, occasionally appearing to recognise or make attempt to communicate."

Fuck thats awful.

Surely if you live that life you would have discussed with your family what you would want if this happened to you?.
I'v discussed this type of thing with my wife and she knows what I would want.

Double Edit: In this case I would say pull the plug.
