Massa's Condition Update III

Some grim news came out of Hungary this afternoon as it was announced that Felipe Massa was still suffering from swelling of the brain. That's bad enough, and explains why he'd been in a medically-induced coma for so long, but the really horrible news is that the Brazilian may have suffered damage to his left eye.

If that is the case, and he can't recover whatever vision is lost, then this incident may very well have ended his F1 career. 

The doctors are saying that it'll be at least a week before they can judge whether or not Massa has suffered any impairment from the brain damage, though they did take him off the ventilator and pulled him out of the coma.  He'll remain in intensive care for the forseeable future, however.

2 John Smith, if you want to break news, please do it on your own blog.  Unfortunately, I do have to work, so I can't sit 24/7 on the F1 news.  Rest assured, I will post about it when I get a chance.
