The seven time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher is out of danger. The German had been in a state of induced coma since December when he met with an accident while skiing in France.
Fans all over the world have been rejoicing since the news first came up. Lukas Podolski, the Arsenal and German forward even hailed Germany’s 4-0 win over Portugal as a tribute to Schumacher.
Michael has been transferred from the hospital at Grenoble to a rehabilitation clinic in Lausanne, Switzerland. The very fact that Michael has been moved means that he can now breathe on his own. The exact location has been kept a secret to protect the privacy of the family.
While the whole world is rejoicing, there are a few doctors who are skeptical about this move to be seen as a positive change. It was reported way back in April that Michael is showing signs of consciousness. We have no information regarding how bad or how good the situation is. Brain damage has been one of the most dangerous and arduous recoveries, and only a quarter of the patients manage a real recovery. Only about 10 to 30 per cent of the people have disabilities which are recoverable.
In fact the very mention of a long rehabilitation process raises eyebrows as it means that long term side effects are definitely present. The good thing is that Michael has age on his side and was physically fit before the accident, putting him at a slightly advantageous position than most.
We hope Michael recovers fully as fast as possible. #KeepFightingMichael #GetWellSoon.
