    Trying not to get too excited, but even if just the fact that he's breathing on his own is true, that alone is great news!

    Conflicting media stories, it seems, as yesterday I read that it will now require a miracle for him to recover. No wonder the family try to steer clear of these media people after these 'news' stories. My thoughts are with them.

    Don't think it's so much a case of conflicting stories, more a case of differing expectations in the press and a degree confusion, some stories more sensationalist and some more realistic, in truth i'm not sure what it is now that I am hoping for, it's very clear now that it's not a case of whether Michael will have brain damage or not but the question is the extent of the brain damage, I think the miracle will be if Michael can ever function in a way that he himself would find bearable, if that constitutes 'recovery' then i'm not sure it is something I would wish for him...

    As I have said before, I completely understand and respect the wishes of the family to be left alone, but I still think the entire situation has been handled in a very poor fashion by his management, Sabine has not done a very good job and continues to be evasive, she says to only listen to official reports from Michaels management and assures us (fans) that when there is news she will make it available, but was forced to announce that they had decided to reduce the sedation only after it was reported by the press, then said it had been decided not to announce it after discussions with the family, so quite the contrary to the earlier assurance that when there was any news it would be announced, the refusal to keep fans informed of the situation has only served to create more confusion and now I tend to believe more that I read in the press than what Sabine says as they have repeatedly been pretty close with their 'stories' and she only says anything when she's forced to do so, I appreciate that in a perfect world everyone would just patiently wait for news, but the reality is that all the fans have shared a lot of very happy memories with Michael, he is a hero to many people, and we all have an appetite for information regarding his health...

    Well said. And I agree that Sabine hasn't done her job particularly well. The lack of information from her has allowed the press to write all these sensationalist stories, some of which might be true but most probably aren't. If only Sabine would share more information and keep people properly updated on the situation then that wouldn't let the media write their stories. No matter how good or bad the situation really is, we the fans and lots of people around the world would surely like to know what's the real state of Michael is. These bits and pieces of information coming once or twice in a month simply isn't enough.

    Very true, but who decides what info is being shared? I think that would not be Sabine, but Michaels family now. If they want to keep everything as private as much as possible (which I can very well understand) , Sabine cannot give more information than is allowed by the family.

    Like everyone else, all we can hope and pray for is that he does recover with some quality of life, for him and his family. Maybe Sabine has been governed by what the family want as far as updates are concerned, and of course I share everyone's frustration that we keep getting rather mixed messages.

    I respect the privacy the family want and understand if they give too much detail the trolls of the world will use that to mock the people who care for his successful recovery. Its been a long road for him and i can only guess how exhausted his family are who are by his bedside. My thoughts are with them and obviously with Michael. Please wake up, please recover soon.

    Come on everyone lets remain optimistic - Michael never gave up on a race until the checkered flag had fallen and I am taking a leaf out of his book and doing the same. Not so many weeks ago we would have been jumping with joy at the news so lets remind ourselves that this is a sensitive recovery but a recovery it may still be.

    Yes, as long as there is any hope...even the slightest of hope that he will recover...then we must keep on believing and hoping. For a great Champ like Schumi, nothing is impossible.

    Anyone can read whatever they want into just about any statement where few details (if any) are given.
    The truth is all hangs in the balance for Michael. If "sometimes are small, encouraging signs" are all they can tell me, well I'll hang my hat on that and patiently wait for the next good news.

    Recent tweet by Felipe, I assume he meant "me" not "ne" (link is to pic of his helmut)

    Fantastic gesture by Massa

    Well I think due to the nature of Schumi's long and difficult recovery, they are just taking it one step at the time, and now the focus is just on waking him up. Perhaps that's as far as the doctors can predict for the moment. Lets hope for the best.

    Somewhat old pictures, but here's Felipe's helmet tribute to Michael during his karting event.





    That was a really nice and lovely gesture by Felipe.

    So he is like 54 kilograms only at the moment, but I still have faith Michael has the strength to overcome all this! Forza Schumi

    Very sad indeed. This weight loss is expected but the longer it goes on the more weight he'll lose. I hope it doesn't get to a critical level but the body's requirements are different and much less demanding during a coma. Even if he does wake up he'll have to go through a lot of physiotherapy to regain mobility and rediscover how to use his musculoskeletal system again.
