    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 :1drink

    Not from this end, you see a few facebook and twitter posts, but nothing much otherwise, but I for one hope he is doing well :1drink

    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.:cry

    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.

    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.

    Fuck thats awful. :cry

    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.

    Reports are that MS is blinking in response to stimulus and responding to simple commands.

    Hope the news just gets better.
