Influential evangelical leader Chuck Colson remains in the neurological intensive care unit despite having shown some signs of recovery.

"His condition remains the same," said Kelsey Hulgan, a spokesperson for Colson, to The Christian Post on Tuesday.

Colson underwent surgery on March 31 to remove a pool of clotted blood on the surface of his brain. His condition turned critical a few days later but last week, doctors at a northern Virginia hospital reported that the founder of Prison Fellowship can hear, process information and execute commands given to him.

While the 80-year-old Christian leader remains hospitalized, new details have emerged regarding the day Colson fell ill.

Eric Metaxas, author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery, said he introduced Colson at the Breaking the Spiral of Silence conference on March 30. Colson began to address attendees and spoke about the book Bonhoeffer when he suddenly "looked unsteady," Metaxas recalled.

"We quickly got him into a chair, and within half an hour he was on the way to the hospital, then airlifted to another hospital," the author described.
