Robin Gibb In Recovery After Falling Into A Coma

Bee Gee's star Robin Gibb has made a miraculous recovery after falling into a coma last week. Gibb was hit hard with intestinal problems in 2011 and was hospitalized after contracting pneumonia.

Now reps for the singer say he is awake and conscious after more than a week in a coma.

"Robin is fully conscious, lucid and able to speak to his loved ones. He is breathing on his own, with an oxygen mask," his medical team says in a statement. "He is on intravenous feeding and antibiotics. He is of course, exhausted, extremely weak and malnourished."

The doctors also note that his family has been "at his bedside every day, talking to him and playing his favorite music to him."

"They have been tireless in their determination never to give up on him," the statement says. "The road ahead for Robin remains uncertain but it is a privilege to look after such an extraordinary human being."
