Loved ones have been holding a vigil at Robin's bedside and it looks now as if they have been rewarded with an improvement in his condition.
62-year-old Robin is a patient at a hospital in Chelsea, London. The Telegraph reported that Mr Gibb's relatives, including wife Dwina, daughter Melissa, 37, and sons Spencer, 39, and Robin-John, 29, have been singing to him, with Mrs Gibb revealing he had cried when she played him the song Cry Robin Gibb, cancer, loved ones, out of coma, Bee Geesing by Roy Orbison. Mr Gibb had surgery on his bowel 18 months ago for an unrelated condition but a tumour was discovered and he was diagnosed with cancer of the colon and, subsequently, of the liver.
Best wishes are sent to Mr Gibb and his family.
