Doctors: Too early to give prognosis on Michael Schumacher

Dec 30, 2013, 5:53 AM EST

During a morning press conference, doctors in Grenoble, France confirmed that seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher has undergone one operation since being admitted to hospital yesterday after sustaining severe head trauma in a skiing accident.

Schumacher remains in a critical condition as well as in an induced coma while doctors attempt to relieve intra-cranial pressure, and they said it was too early to give a prognosis for him, stressing that his situation is one that can change “hour by hour.” They do not currently foresee having to operate a second time on the Formula One legend.

The doctors also noted that had Schumacher not been wearing a helmet during his accident in the French town of Meribel, he would not have survived.

That got bad, quick. Initial reports said he was talking to paramedics and everything.

Just goes to show, even when accidents don't seem that bad, immediate medical attention is always the best insurance. :wink:

That's what "they" say, anyway. No way of telling what kind of condition he's in. I suspect it's not good at all and may never be. They are holding all their cards very close to their chest and are not releasing any info at all...

Let's be specific: he left the original hospital but was transferred to the CHUV, the best hospital near his (and my original) home that will help him with a long neurological recovery.

To say that he left hospital is misleading... :wink:
