Yesterday the club and the London NHS released another joint statement on Fabrice Muamba's progress. Muamba remains in intensive care in the London Chest Hospital, but continues to show signs of improvement. Over the weekend he was able to sit up, eat food, and even watch some of the match his teammates won for hi. He's still not out of the woods yet, but he seems to doing amazingly well in the circumstances.
Owen Coyle also released a statement on the club's official site about Muamba. "Fabrice had a decent weekend and has continued to improve. He remains in intensive care so that shows he is still in a serious situation.
"Fabrice was able to watch Match of the Day on Sunday morning and he was deeply moved by the mosaic and the support he received from both the Bolton and Blackburn fans on the day. He was pleased that his team-mates won the match, although he fell back asleep when the score was 2-0. The fact he was able to watch a large part of the game, given where we were a week ago, is great news. In the last 48 hours he is beginning to become aware of the global response, and he is overwhelmed by all the support. His family continue to spend time with Fabrice and a couple of players will visit him over these next few days to represent the squad. He is still in intensive care and it's important that he doesn't have too many visitors as he continues his recovery, step by step."
Tonight the Wanderers will once again face Tottenham, the match that this all started at. It is sure to be a weird match for the players, but hopefully they are buoyed by the news of Fab's progress.
