For the better part of six months, legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been dealing with health issues. Now we learn that he has suffered yet another serious setback to his already-prolonged recovery from a bacterial infection and pneumonia.
Osbourne reportedly fell at his Los Angeles home and some sources are reporting that the heavy metal musician had to undergo surgery.
In the fall, Osbourne reportedly aggravated a near-fatal injury he suffered during a 2003 ATV accident in which he broke his collarbone, several ribs, and a vertebra in his neck.
This disappointing injury comes on the heels of what some would consider a very bad year.
This injury is “the latest setback for the 70-year-old singer, who already postponed his entire U.K. and European tour while recovering in the hospital from pneumonia and a hand infection that pulled him off the road last year.”
Multiple sources report that his U.S. concerts have already been rescheduled, but won’t begin until more than a year from now, on May 27th. Ozzy’s reps say the U.K. and European shows will be rescheduled shortly.
Ozzy’s son, Jack, spoke out recently when asked about his father’s recovery. He shared that his dad was improving every day.
“Just a couple weeks ago, Osbourne's son Jack said his dad was getting better because he was once again complaining about things. He was hospitalized in February for complications from a flu infection.
“In October he had emergency surgery for the hand infection that could have been fatal.”
According to Loudwire, Ozzy issued the following statement:
"I can't believe I have to reschedule more tour dates,” says Ozzy. “Words cannot express how frustrated, angry and depressed I am not to be able to tour right now.
“I’m grateful for the love and support I'm getting from my family, my band, friends and fans, it's really what's keeping me going.
“Just know that I am getting better every day...I will fully recover...I will finish my tour...I will be back!"
Ozzy remains under doctor’s care in Los Angeles as he recovers.
Will you join us in praying that this is the last of Ozzy's horrible health problems and that he will be his old self very soon?
