The Bee Gees hit "Stayin' Alive" has a lot more meaning now that singer Robin Gibb has come out of his weeklong coma.

And along with the doctors, Gibb's family is amazed at his recovery.

Gibb's doctors released a statement yesterday saying they are "confounded" by his "indomitable fighting spirit and remarkable physical endurance."

"Robin is fully conscious, lucid and able to speak to his loved ones," Dr. Andrew Thillainayagam said. "He is breathing on his own, with an oxygen mask. He is on intravenous feeding and antibiotics."
