Schumacher now communicating with family by fluttering eyelashes
After surviving a near fatal accident, Formula One star Michael Schumacher is now showing signs of revival. A report has revealed that he is now communicating with his family members by fluttering his eyelashes.
The recovery shown by Schumacher may allow him to go back home soon but he will still require round-the-clock medical care to recover completely, reported the Mirror.
Doctors who are treating the Formula One star in Switzerland have said that they hope Schumacher will be able to sit upright in an advanced electronic wheelchair, that he can control with his mouth, in a few weeks.
After he is discharged from the medical care facility, Schumacher is likely to occupy a new building in his mansion that has been constructed without stairs, keeping his medical condition in view.
The sport star woke up from a medically induced coma last month after sustaining life-threatening injuries when he smashed his head against rocks while skiing in the French Alps on December 29.
