After more than a week in a coma, Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has woken up and is showing signs of recovery.
"Robin is fully conscious, lucid and able to speak to his loved ones," his doctors said Sunday in a statement.
"He is breathing on his own, with an oxygen mask," the statement continues. "He is on intravenous feeding and antibiotics. He is of course, exhausted, extremely weak and malnourished."
Family members, including his wife Dwina and his children, have been "at his bedside every day, talking to him and playing his favorite music to him," according to his doctors.

Bee Gees co-founder Robin Gibb is undergoing tests in a U.K. hospital for abdominal pain and inflammation of the colon. He was rushed there by ambulance on Thursday after complaining of pain.
Gibb's wife of 25 years, Dwina, is by his side at Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, England, and is "desperately worried" about his health, the singer's rep tells PEOPLE.
There is also a Gibb family history of gastrointestinal problems. In 2003, Robin's twin brother Maurice died after suffering intestinal complications.
