Ozzy Osbourne is “doing great” and “breathing on his own” after a hospitalization following complications from the flu last week.
“He’s doing great,” Sharon Osbourne said of her husband, 70, on her daytime show “The Talk” Tuesday, interrupted by cheerful applause from both the audience and her co-hosts. “He’s out of ICU.”
“He’s doing good,” she added. “He’s breathing on his own.”
The host also went on to thank everyone and did the same on Twitter.
“Thank you to everyone for all your get well messages and support for Ozzy. We are overwhelmed and truly touched by everyone’s thoughtfulness.”
“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,” she added on the show.
Ozzy Osbourne’s official Facebook page had previously announced that a doctor advised he postpone the U.K. and European dates of his “No More Tours 2″ tour.
“After seeing his physician again, (Osbourne) has been diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection which the doctor feels could develop into pneumonia given the physicality of the live performances and an extensive travel schedule throughout Europe in harsh winter conditions,” the post from Jan. 29 read.
The co-host of “The Talk” shared news of his hospitalization on Twitter last week with her more than two million followers.
“As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu,” Sharon tweeted Feb. 6. “His doctors feel this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery.”
“Thanks to everyone for their concern and love,” she added.
