Schumi wake up 'can take a long time'

Schumi wake up 'can take a long time'

It could be some time still before Michael Schumacher wakes up from his coma after Sabine Kehm confirmed that it takes "a long time."

The seven-time World Champion has been in a coma since late December when he suffered massive head trauma in a skiing accident.

A month after the accident, Schumacher's doctors began the process of waking him up.

However, two weeks later that has yet to happen while several publications have claimed Schumacher has developed pneumonia.

This was quickly denied by his manager Kehm who has subsequently released a new statement thanking fans for their support.

"Michael's family would like to again express their sincere thanks for the continuous sympathy coming from all over the world," it read.

"The good wishes they receive help the family and, we are convinced they also help Michael, who still is in a waking up process.

"As often in such situation no day is like the next. The family is thankful for one's understanding that they would not wish to disclose medical details in order to protect Michael's privacy.

"As assured from the beginning we will continue to communicate any decisive new information on Michael's health state. We are aware that the wake up phase can take a long time.

"The family continues to strongly believe in Michael's recovery and place all their trust in the doctors', nurses' and nursing auxiliaries' team.

"The important thing is not the speed of the recovery but that Michael's heal process progresses in a continuous and controlled way."
