Christopher Schwarzenegger Expected to Make a Full Recovery
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are reunited, in the hospital, that is. A few days after their youngest son Christopher met an accident while surfing, the divorcing couple are together in the hospital to look after their son.
A source close to the couple said, “”They’ve been in the hospital together, and they’re talking constantly. Their son is their priority right now.”
Their 13 year old boy sustained a collapsed lung and multiple broken bones in a Malibu beach outing last Sunday.
Schwarzenegger and Shriver released a joint statement saying: “A few days ago our son Christopher suffered an accident at the beach. While it has been a very scary week, Christopher is surrounded by his family and friends. He is a brave boy and is expected to make a full recovery. On behalf of our entire family, we want to sincerely thank the paramedics and lifeguards who responded so swiftly as well as the doctors, nurses, emergency room and hospital staff who have cared for our son. They have been extraordinary to him and to us.
They concluded with gratitude to everyone. “We thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and ask for respect and privacy for Christopher and our family.”
Their family members have rallied to the boy’s side and siblings posted their messages in Twitter. The teen’s brother Patrick wrote, “This kid is strongest kid I ever seen. Keep praying.” His eldest sister Katherine said, “Thank you guys for ur concern and prayers for my baby brother! He’s a tough little guy and getting better! Please keep praying for him! Xo.”
Shriver was with the teen during the accident and has been with his son in the ICU of an undisclosed hospital.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade. Just enter your e-mail below and confirm your subscription by clicking the link that will be sent to your e-mail.
