Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb emerged from his coma a few days ago to the astonishment of doctors. His family kept a bedside vigil and were there when the singer opened his eyes. What were the first words Robin spoke once his breathing tube was removed?
According to a report from India Glitz, the words were directed to Gibb's son Robin John Gibb.
It seems Gibb opened his eyes, looked at Robin John, and said, "Hello, RJ."
Can you imagine the emotions this 28-year-old was flooded with upon hearing his father speak those words? After wondering if he'd every hear his father's voice again, he heard him speak his very own name. What a treasure that moment must have been for him, as well as for the entire Gibb family.
Robin Gibb fell into a coma when he developed pneumonia following treatments for colorectal cancer. Doctors feared the worst for several days, and were thrilled when the Bee Gees singer woke up.
Robin, along with brothers Barry Gibb and the late Maurice Gibb, formed the Bee Gees back in the 1960s, and were known for hits like How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, Got to Get A Message to You and Stayin' Alive. Their songs spanned decades.
Robin Gibb's health status is tenuous at best right now. He is still battling colorectal cancer. But this gift he and his family have been given--one of a bit more time together--is what they'll no doubt cherish. His son will certainly never forget that his father's first words after coming out of his coma were to him.
