Michael Schumacher is fighting hard to recover from his medically induced coma and fans of the F1 legend are praying day and night for the quick recovery of the 47-year-old. The latest health update of the German racing icon will concern his faithful’s and has already induced his family to keep fighting for his recovery.
The seven-time Formula One champion is currently unable to speak, walk and perform any of the regular day-to-day activities. Although Schumacher’s former Ferrari chief, Luca Di Montezomolo stated that the driver is reacting; there has been no such confirmation from the family, as reported by Christian Today.
Sabine Kehm, manager of Michael Schumacher and the only reliable source until now recently revealed that the driver is far away from recovery. On a recent Lifetime Achievement award ceremony, she accepted the award on Schumacher’s behalf and stated that the entire family is happy to see the German legend improving, but considering the severeness of the injury, everyone is expecting it to take a very long time.
“We are happy to say still he does improvement and I say that always considering the severeness of the injury he had. But of course it will take a very long time for everybody involved to fight, and we are happy to take this fight.” Kehm said, according to TVNZ.
Kehm’s words were previously confirmed by Dr. Peter Hamlyn, a consultant and a neurological and spinal surgeon, who stated that not all victims of head injuries go on to make a recovery. Even if some of them does, then it may not be a complete recovery and will be a matter of years which will cause immense mental torture to the family.
“Gradually as the weeks and months go by, those questions of survival turn into questions of the quality of survival.” Hamlyn said, as reported by Express.
Michael Schumacher suffered a skiing accident, almost three years ago on the French Alps. He is currently recovering in his family’s Swiss mansion facing Lake Geneva.
