Australia's former Test captain, Steve Waugh, says his wife Lynette is making good progress in her recovery from surgery to remove a blood clot from her brain.

"Lynette's recovery is very pleasing," Steve Waugh said in a joint statement with Charles Teo, the surgeon who carried out the operation. "So far all investigations into the cause of the haemorrhage have been negative. There are still a few investigations to be carried out."

Lynette Waugh, 38, had the surgery on Friday after being rushed to a Sydney hospital. "Dr Teo suspects the most likely scenario was a spontaneous haemorrhage and one that, hopefully, won't reoccur in the future.

"The Waugh family would again like to acknowledge the incredible support, goodwill and positive encouragement from the public and the media," Waugh added. "It is greatly appreciated."
