Ozzy Osbourne gave his fans quite a scare when he was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit following complications of a flu. He had to postpone some shows for the UK and European leg of his “No More Tours 2″ tour as per his doctor’s advise. He was diagnosed with severe upper-respiratory infection which could progress to pneumonia given the harsh weather conditions in Europe.
When wife Sharon returned to her daytime show The Talk on February 12, she gave some updates on Ozzy’s health. She also said he is “doing great” and that he’s “out of ICU.” She also added,
“He’s breathing on his own. He’s overcome by the response he’s had.
“And I just want to say a huge thank you to everybody that has reached out with good wishes. He’s overcome by the response that he’s had … it’s kind of bittersweet because he’s so overwhelmed with it but he’s sad too.”
Sharon even took to Twitter to thank everyone for their support.
“Thank you to everyone for all your get well messages and support for Ozzy. We are overwhelmed and truly touched by everyone’s thoughtfulness.”
Five days earlier, son Jack also shared an update via Instagram that his dad was “doing much better.” Ozzy is set to reschedule all the tour dates.
