“He’s no longer sedated…a bit awake now,” Zulcerva-Grim said in a video shared to his more than 8,000 followers on the platform after his health issues became public last week.

Although he does not have a strong enough voice to communicate, his wife said “his voice is slowly coming back” and he is being weaned off the medications prescribed to him by doctors.
