each before Paderborn somewhat settled down from miao1234's blog

BERLIN -- Nearly six months after sustaining serious head injuries in a skiing accident, seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher left a French hospital on Monday and was transferred to neighbouring Switzerland to continue his recovery. Cheap Detroit Pistons Jerseys . Schumacher "is not in a coma anymore," his manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a brief statement announcing that the German driver had left the Grenoble University Hospital, where he had been treated since his accident Dec. 29. Kehm gave no further details of his condition or medical outlook, saying only that he would "continue his long phase of rehabilitation." Schumacher left the Grenoble hospital Monday morning, said hospital spokeswoman Brigitte Polikar, who declined to give any details on his condition. He was transferred to the Lausanne University Hospital, near the Schumacher familys Swiss home. Hospital spokesman Darcy Christen confirmed the 45-year-old German was admitted but stressed that the facility wants "to ensure that he and his family fully enjoy privacy and medical confidentiality." Schumachers accident happened on a family vacation as Schumacher was skiing with his 14-year-old son at the Meribel ski resort in the French Alps. He hit the right side of his head on a rock, cracking his helmet. Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain, but some were left because they were too deeply embedded. Schumachers condition stabilized after he was placed in a drug-induced coma. In late January, doctors began the process of withdrawing sedatives to try to wake him up. Over recent months, little information has been released on Schumachers condition. Mondays announcement was the first substantial update since Kehm said in early April that Schumacher "shows moments of consciousness and awakening." The family "would like to explicitly thank all his treating doctors, nurses and therapists in Grenoble as well as the first aiders at the place of the accident, who did an excellent job in those first months," Kehms latest statement said. "The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes. ... We are sure it helped him," it added. "For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye," it added. Much remains unclear about Schumachers future as well as the length and extent of his recovery. "If hes been released from the hospital he was in, it means hes able to support his own breathing and bodily functions," said Dr. Tipu Aziz, a professor of neurosurgery at Oxford Universitys John Radcliffe Hospital. The fact that Schumacher is going into rehabilitation "suggests theres been long-term side effects of his injury," he added. "With rehabilitation, theyll try to train him to cope with the disabilities that hes got to achieve as much life function as possible," Aziz said. "If hes had a brain injury, he may have weakness in his limbs secondary to loss of brain function. He may have problems with speech and swallowing." He said that "rehabilitation would probably take a good few months" but noted that Schumacher was an athlete before his accident "so was in good shape." Schumacher earned universal acclaim for his uncommon and sometimes ruthless driving talent, which led to a record 91 race wins. He retired from F1 racing in 2012 after an unmatched seven world titles. The Mercedes team, for which Schumacher raced in the last three years of his career, posted on Twitter: "Encouraging news on Michaels condition this morning. We couldnt ask for a better start to the week." That was echoed by former world champion and Schumacher rival Fernando Alonso, who tweeted: "Good start of the week with the news of Michael! So happy this is going in the good direction!" Germany midfielder Lukas Podolski also took to Twitter hours before his teams opening World Cup match, writing: "What a great news!!! Get well soon Schumi!!! Im so glad and happy when I just heard it!!" Cheap Soccer Jerseys .

"I have no complaints about the refereeing in this series," he said ahead of Game 5.FRANKFURT, Germany -- Mario Goetze scored two goals as Bayern Munich eased to a 4-0 victory over promoted Paderborn and moved to the top of the Bundesliga on Tuesday. Paderborns hopes of achieving a huge upset were dashed quickly, as Goetze and Robert Lewandowski scored inside the first quarter of an hour. Goetze and Thomas Mueller then netted late in the match as Bayern brought down to earth the team that had come into the match as the surprise league leader. "Bayern is in a different league from us," Paderborns captain Uwe Huenemeir said. "We started well and we had some chances but Bayern is a world-class team," Paderborns coach Andre Breitenreiter added. "After the first two goals we strengthened our defence. We tried to score late in the game and Bayern used the space to score." Paderborn did not embarrass itself despite the big defeat and wasted several chances. The small club is making its debut in the top tier and has a budget 25 times smaller than that of Bayern and is dwarfed in all aspects by the German powerhouse and defending champion. Bayern opened a two-point lead over Mainz, which blew a two-goal advantage and had to settle for a 2-2 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt. In other matches, Schalke won 3-0 at Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim and Freiburg drew 3-3. Paderborns only claim to prominence before this season was a dubious one. The club, then in the third division, was involved in one of the one of the matches manipulated by referee Robert Hoyzer in 2004 in Germanys biggest match-fixing scandal. This season, however, Paderborn is gaining attention for all the right reasons. By playing an aggressive pressing game, the club with a home ground that can house only 15,000 was undefeated after four matches and leading the league on goal difference. It had the first chance off the match when Elias Kachungas spectacular volley sailed high. Wholesale Jerseys. Bayern quickly seized control, though, to end Paderborns promising start. Goetze, who scored Germanys World Cup winning goal against Argentina, picked up a backheel pass from Mueller to slot home in the eighth. Lewandowski doubled the lead in the 14th with a volley from the edge of the penalty box, but he appeared to be slightly offside. Paderborn then found it hard to come out of its half, but when it did it nearly scored. Idir Ouali broke free but his weak shot was smothered by goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Lewandowski and Goetze wasted a couple of chances each before Paderborn somewhat settled down after the break. Xabi Alonso, having an outstanding game, cleared a dangerous cross from Moritz Stoppelkamp, before Neuer was forced into a diving save from substitute Suleyman Koc, who had served prison time for armed robbery before getting a chance at Paderborn. But Bayern struck again late in the game, with Goetze scoring in the 78th and Mueller in the 85th, both from close range. "It was very important to make a statement. Paderborn was having problems from the start," said Arjen Robben, who helped set up Bayerns first goal and assisted on its fourth. Schalke secured its first win of the season to ease the pressure on coach Jens Keller. Schalke was missing several regulars due to injuries and suspensions, while Bremen had five players out because of a virus infection. Shinji Okazaki scored his league-high fifth goal of the season as Mainz went 2-0 up in Frankfurt but Haris Seferovics goal in the 85th salvaged the draw for the home team. Yannik Vestergaard scored in the third minute of stoppage time to earn the draw for Hoffenheim, which trailed 2-0 and 3-2. The late equalizer left Freiburg still without a win. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale JerseysCheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
