Robin Gibb apparently showed signs that he might pull through his coma Thursday night.
Robin Gibb, 62, who fell into unconsciousness last week reportedly responded to his elder brother Barry’s voice.
Barry Gibb, 65, sang to Robin by his bedside and a source close to the family said this prompted “flickers of life”.
Speaking to The Sun, the source said: “There were flickers of life from Robin. His eyes moved and there was an attempt at speech.
“It was a good sign he is fighting hard for his life but he is certainly not out of the woods yet.”
“The family have to remain very cautious,” the source added.
Barry Gibb jetted into the UK from Tennessee to join other members of the family, following Robin’s re-admission to hospital.
Robin Gibb is now battling pneumonia, following months of health troubles, after being diagnosed with colon cancer after surgery for a blocked bowel in 2010.
In a recent interview, Robin Gibb’s wife Dwina said: “Barry was singing to him. Thousands of people are saying prayers every day.”
Last week, Dwina Gibb was spotted leaving the private hospital in Chelsea where her husband is fighting for his life.
Dwin Gibb’s been saying prayers at his bedside since he was admitted to hospital but she was pictured showing the strain of the past few days.
As she took a break from her vigil, the pained expression on her face spoke volumes.
