Good news about the state of the footballer Sergio Rico, admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the Virgen del Rocío hospital in Seville since Sunday May 28, when he was kicked in the head by some runaway oxen in El Rocío after falling off his horse.
Although he is still serious, after 9 days sedated and intubated due to the head injury he suffered in the fatal accident, the last hour invites us to think about optimism.
And it is that, as his wife, Alba Silva, confirmed this Tuesday, the doctors who are treating the Paris Saint Germain goalkeeper began to withdraw his sedation yesterday to see how his body reacts to the stimuli: “Taking little steps forward and we are happy. The doctors are seeing how he reacts and they have to be aware” he explained, acknowledging that at this time “we are a bit expectant to see how it evolves.
For this reason, and despite Sergio continues to be intubated because for the moment -and out of prudence- mechanical respiration will not be withdrawn, his wife assures that “every time there is less” and, although “little by little”, his recovery, although slow, is on the right track.
