We are still SO glad to hear that Robin Gibb has come out of his coma over the weekend.
Apparently it was much worse than we thought, so our elation at this news is multiplied! As it turns out, they gave Robin an under 10% survival chance.
Here's what his wife, Dwina, had to say:
"He is fantastic at the moment. He is laughing, he is joking, he is really happy. He just wants to get out. He has been very naughty because he pulled his feeding tube out so the nurses will have to put it back in again but he wants ice cream…he wants all kinds of things. It's good anyway. We played music to him for about ten days so we asked him if he wanted to listen to any more music and he said no - we've bombarded him with music for about 10 days. It was very interesting…”
Incredible! Here's what Robin-John, his son, had to say:
"He woke up while we were playing the track which is a movement from the [Titanic] Requiem we have just written. He is completely compos mentis now and the first thing he said to me was ‘Hi R-J, can you tell them my back hurts?' so we got a nurse to turn him. We said we loved each other. Two days before that they said they'd thrown the kitchen sink at him, that it was time to make plans because he was in God's hands and such but he beats the odds again and they gave him an under 10% survival chance and he has beaten the odds…he really is something else."
This is seriously amazing, and we can't explain how happy we are for Robin and his family!
We can only hope for a continued and speedy recovery now!
