Michael Schumacher remains in coma, latest update: FIA president and former Ferrari boss Jean Todt has returned to the Grenoble, France hospital bedside of his friend, seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher, who was critically injured in a skiing accident in the French Alps on Dec. 29. Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma for almost a full month, raising doubts he will ever recover from the accident. However, the Blick newspaper in Germany reports that journalists, particularly those in Germany, have been warned about making any speculation of Schumacher's prognosis from his head injury with a letter from lawyers representing the great German's family. In the meantime, Bild am Sonntag newspaper quoted Schumacher spokesperson Sabine Kehm as saying Schumacher's wife Corinna only wants the 45-year-old former Formula One driver's closest friends to be around him. One of the closest of all is 67-year-old Frenchman Todt, who heads F1's governing body.(AutoWeek)(1-29-2014)

It's becoming painfully clear that we will never see Michael again. He not only had bleeding on the outside of the brain, but in the center. Even if he survives, it's very possible that normal functions will not return.

Wishing him all the best, and strength for his family and friends in the days ahead.

I'm not being funny, but maybe a high dosage of fish oil will help his brain recovery.

Michael Schumacher leaving coma: Michael Schumacher's doctors have started trying to wake up the former Formula Champion from the medically induced coma he's been in since a skiing accident last month, his manager said Thursday. The 45-year-old Schumacher suffered serious head injuries when he fell and hit the right side of his head on a rock in the French resort of Meribel on Dec. 29. The seven-time F1 champion has been in an induced coma in Grenoble University Hospital since then, although his condition stabilized following surgery after initially being described as critical. "Michael's sedation is being reduced in order to allow the start of the waking up process which may take a long time," Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a statement. Schumacher was being kept artificially sedated and his body temperature was lowered to between 34 and 35 degrees Celsius (93.2 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit), to reduce swelling in the brain, reduce its energy consumption and allow it to rest. Kehm said she was only providing an update now on Schumacher's condition to clarify media leaks, and that no further details would be provided.(ESPN)(1-31-2014)

Also dated the 7th....

Quote:
Doctors treating Formula 1 ace Michael Schumacher have been forced to deny the seven-times world champion has died.

It comes after wild rumours started spreading on social networking sites, including Twitter, that the 45-year-old had passed away.

A spokesperson for the Grenoble hospital where the racing driver is being treated immediately put out a statement saying: "The hospital denies that Michael Schumacher has died."

Now there is an article saying Michael is fighting a lung infection.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2557510/Michael-Schumacher-battling-pneumonia-doctors-slowly-bring-coma-following-ski-crash.html

Quote:
Stricken Formula One champion Michael Schumacher has developed pneumonia as doctors try to bring him out of the artificial coma that he has been in since December 29, German media reported today.

Germany's biggest newspaper, Bild, said that Schumacher, 45, developed the lung infection last week at the University Hospital in Grenoble. His spokeswoman Sabine Kehm refused to comment on the report, saying only it was 'speculation, and I do not comment on speculation.'

But Bild, which is known to have close contacts to the inner circle of the seven-time world Formula One champion, said he is being treated with strong antibiotics as his doctors try to ascertain just how dangerous the infection is.

One of the many head injury experts weighing in on this said that pneumonia is a common complication when someone is in a state like this. The fact that they can't swallow allows saliva into the lungs which can trigger the infection.
