Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb woke up from a coma last month to the shock of both his doctors and his family members. Now it seems his battle is becoming worse and the singer is no longer able to speak. Doctors had to insert a tracheotomy tube a week ago, as his body seems to be failing.
According to a report from the Toronto Sun, Gibb, who is 62, must undergo more chemotherapy treatments in his battle with colorectal cancer. He hasn't been strong enough yet, however, for those treatments to commence.
Now it seems the singer, known along with brothers Barry and Maurice Gibb for songs like How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, Stayin' Alive and How Deep is Your Love, must communicate with doctors and with wife Dwina via blinking.
"His mind is sharp as a tack but his body seems to be failing. But Robin will not give up. And Dwina is determined he continue treatment," a source close to the family reports.
Fans no doubt were thrilled to learn that Robin Gibb had awoken from his coma, but it sounds like more disappointment may be in store. His battle is an increasingly difficult one, and it sounds like it may not be one that he can win.
