Schumacher seen skiing in Italy in January 2004
It has been reported that Scumacher is making a 'long, slow recovery' at his home in Switzerland. And he has started to respond to voices he recognize and tears start to roll down when he listens to his son, daughter and wife.
The rather good news comes one year after the tragic accident and as his family prepare to mark his 46th birthday at their home in Gland, Switzerland, where he has been recovering since June. According to an Italian journalist who reported the progress, the fact Schumacher is reacting with tears is 'valuable news', after a year of seeming 'really far away'.
