We’re cautiously optimistic today after the latest update on William Fox-Pitt’s condition was announced via British Eventing. The hospital said last week that it would not provide further updates until this week, and British Eventing has just released this statement:
William has made progress over the weekend; today he is conscious, breathing on his own and communicating with his family and doctors, however he is still very ill.
He and his family are very grateful for all the support and messages, it is hugely appreciated.
Further progress is going to take time, so please continue to respect the family’s privacy.
William sustained a head injury following a fall from Reinstated at Le Lion d’Angers last weekend during cross country. He remains in our thoughts as we continue to pull for his recovery.
