Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has emerged from his coma. He is fully conscious and speaking with his family members. This is nothing short of a miracle for the singer who fell into a coma last week after contracting pneumonia.
According to a report from People.com, Gibb started showing signs of coming out of the coma earlier this weekend. He cried when brother Barry Gibb sang to him and he nodded his head when his family asked him questions. Now doctors have deemed him fully conscious once again. His breathing tube has been removed and family members are rejoicing in the sound of his voice.
"Robin is fully conscious, lucid and able to speak to his loved ones," his doctors said on Sunday as part of a media statement.
"He is breathing on his own, with an oxygen mask," the statement reads. "He is on intravenous feeding and antibiotics. He is of course, exhausted, extremely weak and malnourished."
Robin, along with brothers Barry and Robin Gibb formed the band the Bee Gees back in the late 1960s. Their music spanned decades. Known for hit songs like "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart," "Massachusetts," "Got to Get A Message to You" and "Stayin' Alive," it was always Robin's vibrato that stood out above his brothers' harmonious voices.
Robin was diagnosed with colon and liver cancer back in the fall of 2011. He had reportedly recovered from both forms of cancer.
"The road ahead for Robin remains uncertain but it is a privilege to look after such an extraordinary human being," his doctors say.
What an incredible blessing for his family members and friends--as well as for those who love his extraordinary music--that Robin Gibb has come out of his coma and is now speaking with his family members and doctors. May he be blessed with strength and courage as he continues to persevere in his recovery.
