Michael Schumacher will undergo a “waking up” process after being in a medically-induced coma since December 29th. Doctors at the Grenoble hospital stated that the process could take a long time and the family have issued a statement through long-time manager Sabine Khem:

“Michael’s sedation is being reduced in order to allow the start of the waking up process which may take a long time,”.

“For the protection of the family, it was originally agreed by the interested parties to communicate this information only once this process was consolidated.”

These are very sensitive moments in which the family, doctors and fans are all sending best wishes, crossed-fingers, prayers, thoughts and hopes that the 7-time champion will wake from his coma into a lucid state and the recovery can begin without long-term impact both mentally and physically.

    Sounds like exactly the news we wanted to hear and like they started that not today but at some point in the past and are now seeing the first signs of progress, because I guess they wouldn’t have put this out if they was no change after reducing sedation. “For the protection of the family, it was originally agreed […] to communicate this information only once this process was consolidated.” Sounds almost like an apology why they weren’t able to inform the public earlier on the true development, but I don’t think there’s any need for an apology.

      I now read somewhere else that “someone close to the case (presumably) has told the press about the reduction in sedation, leading to an official announcement having to be made sooner than the family would [have] liked” – which would of course completely change any guess-work about what may be developing. That way, the above-quoted statement would also make a lot of sense, only in a completely different way.
