George Michael Hospitalized, Improving

George Michael has been hospitalized for pneumonia in Vienna but doctors say  he’s improving. The 48-year-old British singer was diagnosed with the sickness this week and forced to cancel the rest of his European tour. Doctors treating Michael said his case put him in intensive care due to “severity and extension” but he is improving steadily with “an impressive regression of pneumonic symptoms and follows a steady rate of improvement as hoped.”

We hope that’s doctor speak for – he’s feeling better and wil lbe back on his feet soon!

The doctors did go on to say that “complete rest … and quiet are mandatory” so we assume that means no more touring. Fortunately, there seem to be no other health issues other than pneumonia as some had originally speculated: “Michael is receiving precisely the same treatment as any ordinary patient in Austria would receive at the hospital for this disease.”
