Michael Schumacher's condition has been in the news this week with reports that his doctors have stopped the "waking up process." On Feb. 27, The Independent reported that Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, has dismissed those claims, confirming that doctors are still working to wake Schumacher from the medically induced coma that he's been in for the past two months.
"Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm, who has acted as a spokesperson for Schumacher and his family throughout the ordeal, has confirmed that the situation remains 'unchanged' and has stressed the importance for patience with what can be a very lengthy process," reports The Independent.
Schumacher's condition has been stable for the past few weeks. He has undergone "two operations to reduce swelling on his brain and remove haematomas" but he is still alive. It's unknown how much longer he will remain in a coma or if he will need more surgeries, but his family, friends, and fans remain hopeful.
As previously reported, Schumacher's wife has spent a lot of time by her husband's side since the accident. It is certainly a very trying time and without much "good" news coming from the hospital, it's hard to keep the faith. Knowing, however, that his condition has not worsened is definitely a good sign.
And so Schumacher remains in stable condition.
