Things are looking positive for Molly Meldrum. According to his brother, Brian, the music industry legend opened his eyes, which has made their family optimistic about his recovery. But Brian says they’re also being realistic: “In terms of him being brought to a point of him being able to talk to us, and communicate with us, I can’t imagine that will happen any time soon, and when I say soon, certainly not in the next couple of days.”
Still, any sign from Molly at this stage is better than none at all. He has been at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne since last Thursday night; when he was brought in he was in a critical condition after falling from the roof of his house while putting up Christmas decorations. An outpour of thoughts and prayers came from Australian fans and celebrities, including Kylie Minogue, Russell Crowe and The Veronicas.
