Christopher suffered multiple broken bones and a collapsed lung as a result of the accident in Malibu.  We're told Christopher's condition has now been upgraded and he will be OK .

We're told Maria has constantly been at Chris' side.  And Arnold has been a regular visitor as well.  We're told in spite of the divorce, the entire family has come together as a unit in dealing with Christopher's accident.

Maria has had an incredibly tough year ... and an extremely rough week.

UPDATE: Arnold just stopped by the hospital to check up on Christopher ... with his daughter Christina in tow. Maria arrived on her own soon after.

I see someone slamming Arnold for not signing onto spousal support. Good God, Maria is walking away with over $200 million, what more does she want. As far as Maria giving up her "career" for Arnold to be a stay at home mom, how much you want to bet they have cooks, maids, gardners, nannys, and a whole slew of other staff, how hard is "stay at home mom" in the Schwarzenegger home? I don't condone what Arnold did, but don't you think Maria kinda knew what kind of person he was? I mean once a horn dog always a horn dog.

Bubbles The Chimp ~ That was a stupid comment. Doesn't even make sense. Don't quit your day job...that is, if you have one!

For all you sad losers that feel its "fun" to mock and ridicule the son of a famous parent..think about it. This kid could easily read all your posts, and at 13 with his family in turmoil he could be very vulnerable now. No doubt some of you sick f*cks will get off on this knowledge, but every action has a consequence...eventually. Think this is harmless "fun"? Think again...

First off, I cannot believe the comments here. No sympathy at ALL! Do any of you have morales? Do you have a caring bone in your body? Any faith at all? Obviously NOT! Whether you people are kidding around or mean what you say (I'm sure it's a combination of both from people like you)it's plain PATHETIC! You are all in my prayers! You need it!

Surfing is a great sport but very dangerous. I also have a son who was injured while surfing but years later still surfs on a daily basis if the waves allow. Glad to hear the young man is going to be okay. Glad to see the family standing as one and supporting the young man with love. Prayers for you all.

My prayers go out to The Schwarzenegger's and their son...for a complete and full recovery of their son, as well as their marriage. It sounds like a difficult time for everyone.

Why should we give a crap about a celeb and his family? Too much celeb worship is taking this country down. We should be concerned about and our freinds children.

Wow, how sick some of you are. Why would you be picking on a young man in the ICU for being "fat" or pudgy?? He's only 13 and just because he doesn't look like Maria (stick thin) doesn't mean that he's fat. Those of you picking on this kid should be ashamed but I doubt you will be because you're toxic people. Do the compassionate thing and say a quick prayer for this family, they are clearly going through a lot right now and they don't have less feelings because they're rich.
