OZZY OSBOURNE Hospitalized From Flu Complications
Ozzy Osbourne checked into Keck Hospital of USC on Monday, according to a report from The Blast, reporting after suffering from flu complications.
Sharon tweeted "As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu. 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."
The Blast reported that Sharon and Jack Osbourne rushed to the hospital, with Sharon leaving for a bit and returning with a suitcase and blanket.
Just last week, Ozzy Osbourne postponed the entirety of his European "No More Tours 2" tour, which was set to also include Judas Priest. Ozzy said he coughed so hard earlier this week, he burst a blood vessel in his eye.
Doctors have said it's best if he does not tour and just rests. Ozzy was diagnosed diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection and doctors feared if Ozzy toured it could develop into pneumonia based on the winter weather conditions and the intense physicality of touring.
Ozzy offered this statement at the time:
"I'm completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg of my tour. It just seems that since October, everything I touch has turned to shit. First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis.
"I want to apologize to all of my fans who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down. However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It's being rescheduled right now to start in September. Again, I apologize to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy."
Our thoughts are with Ozzy for a speedy recovery.
