• Michael Schumacher may never wake again - Doctors fear permanent vegetative state

      The news regarding Michael Schumacher's recovery from his tragic skiing accident is grim. The seven time world champion may never again regain consciousness after a medically induced coma to repair a brain hemorrhage after his head struck a rock. There is no date for when doctors might try to wake him and after being in an induced coma and on life support for such a prolonged time period doctors believe there is not much of a chance for a limited recovery let alone a full recovery.

      Schumacher's vitals are stable but he remains in a critical condition. There is fear that if doctor's wake him he may lose his memory or sustain further damage. His family continues to pray for a miracle.

      It may be time for us to face the likely possibility that the Michael Schumacher we all knew is gone and only his physical self remains.

        He's isn't responding the deliberate stimuli to wake him... this is sad.

        As this is not 'official', lets hope it is wrong.

        Exactly. I just hope if he does wake up he is still himself.

        Local newssite reports Schumacher has left the hospital awake and will continue his long recovery elsewhere.
        His family thanks all the doctors and nurses.
        That alone indicates he is not really capable of speaking at all...
        Maybe he would have been better of if he had died in the accident...
        This will be a faint shadow of the man he once was, if even that.
        Really sad.

        News from last week was still he was in the hospital
