Schumi had a bad skiing accident is no win a medicaly induced coma in Grenoble hospital "fighting for his life". Not good hope he pulls through without any side affects.

Miserable son of a bitch in an F1 car he may have been apparently away from racing one of the nicest guys you could hope to meet. Get well soon Michael.

Yeah, not good news.

The information coming out has too many parallels with the infomation flow after Possum Bourne's crash... :/ 
The good thing about telling the truth is that you don't have to remember what you said.

Schumi went up and down then up again in my books. Drove nearly a full GP with his Benetton stuck in 5th including 2 pit stops is well above average with F1 drivers, then the running Hill and Villeneuve of the track to win titles was his nadir then retired and took up superbike racing at the deep end just for the fun of it elevated him to legend status. Funny in 2002 when I was in Germany they had an interview with him speaking German. That was the first time I had saw that.
Still no change or more news

just heard he has been put into cold store apparently gives a better chance for the brain to heal, if he wasn't wearing a helmet he would not have made it to hospital.
A great man, all the best and a speedy recovery Schumi

Not good news for a motoring legend  :-[



http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/article-2540228/Michael-Schumacher-coma-rest-life.html

Fears are growing in Germany that stricken F1 legend Michael Schumacher may be in a coma for the rest of his life.

German weekly news magazine Focus reported that 'Schumacher could be in a coma forever' after speaking with experts on his condition. 


Bild newspaper also reported that his condition is so grave that there are currently no plans to wake him.


He has been in an artificially induced state of unconsciousness for 18 days now and the silence from his management and the medical teams treating him in Grenoble, France, lead many to fear the worst.

The coma means that oxygen to his brain is reduced, therefore it works less and is better placed to recover from the injuries sustained during a low-speed ski accident on December 29. 


But Schumacher, 44, has not recovered anywhere near sufficiently to be awoken from his coma, leading to the speculation that he might be committed to it for the rest of his days.

Patients placed in such comas are usually brought out of them after one to two weeks.

'There may have been complications', said neurosurgeon Andreas Zieger of the University Clinic for neurosurgery in Oldenburg to Focus magazine.   

'We should not speculate here. Ultimately, we are talking about life and death. A coma can in theory be maintained for a lifetime. It won’t hurt the human brain.'

But side effects include anaesthetic increasingly stressing the liver, muscle breakdown and rises in intracranial pressure as a result of cerebrospinal fluid not circulating efficiently.

Professor Zieger added: 'Brain injuries are among the most complicated injuries that can happen to the human body. 


'Predictions about how long a person might be in a coma or potential complications are seldom reliable.'

Cologne neurological expert Professor Gereon Fink fears that his long coma indicates serious damage in the brain and that his condition remains critical.

'He assumes that Michael Schumacher’s health condition is apparently worse than hoped for,' reported a news website.


'If the injuries are so severe that it would harm the patient, he is kept longer in the medically induced coma,' said professor Fink.


'Depending on where bleeding has taken place can lead to unilateral paralysis, speech disorders or personality changes.'

Schumacher, whose wife Corinna and two children are maintaining a constant bedside vigil in France, has undergone two operations since the accident at the resort of Meribel and has undergone fresh scans this week.

German media said that the risk of brain haemorrhage remain high and why he is still classified as critically ill.


His catastrophic accident has already had a knock-on effect for some current racing drivers who, according to Bild newspaper, have now been issued with a list of off-track activities they are now banned from undertaking.

Bild says skiing, motocross and motorbike riding are out.


Red Bull, it reports, has banned driver Daniel Ricciardo from surfing in the sea off his hometown of Perth in Australia because of the danger of shark attacks.

Ferrari says it has issued no such directives to its drivers saying: 'We trust our drivers to be able to decide what is dangerous and what is not.'

If theres any justice in the world then Michael will make a full recovery. I dont do religion but i believe in the power of positive thought , so if you wish Michael to get well soon just believe it will happen and you will get your wish .

I work with Michael Schumacher in 1999&2000, a lovely man who greeted you with good morning and thanked you at the end of the day when testing ( a bit more pressure at the races). Such a shame after all the death defying drives and races he competed in and then a simple slip and he's now where he is.Hopfully he heading in the right direction and on the road to recovery. Fingers crossed
