Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has awakened from a coma and is showing signs of recovery.
“Robin is fully conscious, lucid and able to speak to his loved ones,” his doctors said Sunday in a press statement.
“He is breathing on his own, with an oxygen mask,” the statement continues. “He is on intravenous feeding and antibiotics. He is of course, exhausted, extremely weak and malnourished.”
People magazine reported that Gibb’s family members, including his wife Dwina and his children, have been by his side non-stop.
“They have been tireless in their determination never to give up on him,” the doctors’ press statement read. “The road ahead for Robin remains uncertain but it is a privilege to look after such an extraordinary human being.”
In October 2011, Gibb fell ill and was diagnosed with liver and colon cancer, but had made a recovery.
