Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb is likely to be discharged from the hospital some time this coming week. The singer with the brilliant vibrato is suffering from colorectal cancer. He fell into a coma after developing pneumonia, but came out of it a few days ago.
According to a report from Digital Spy, his doctors are astounded at the advances he has made toward recovery. They say his 'iron will' and 'physical endurance' have amazed them.
"Robin is still weak but getting better by the day. His recovery is nothing short of a miracle. Weeks ago Dwina and the family were prepared for the worst, now they are hoping he will be home very soon," a source close to the Gibb family says.
And it sounds as though 'soon' could very well be some time this coming week.
"They will not rush him but there is a very good possibility of him being discharged at the end of the week and arrangements are being made for him to have medical help at home," the source adds.
Robin Gibb, along with brothers Barry and Maurice Gibb formed the group the Bee Gees back in the 1960s. Known for songs like I Started A Joke, Massachusetts and Stayin' Alive--their harmonious songs spanned decades. It would indeed be a gift to hear Robin sing again. His health comes first, however, and those closest to him are doing everything they can to see that happen.
"The doctors will not take the decision lightly. Dwina will make sure his every medical need is catered for. Robin is aware how close to death he was. But he is determined to go home," the family source says.
Are you excited to learn that Robin Gibb may be well enough to go home this coming week? Even with continued at-home medical care, this progress defied what everyone believed were terrible odds just a few short days ago.
