George Michael, award winning singer and songwriter, is being released from AKH hospital in Vienna so that he can spend Christmas at home.
UK’s TheSun reports that doctors treating the 48-year old, British vocalist have approved a plan for Michael to travel from Austria back to the United Kingom – a mere 1 month after he was diagnosed with “severe” community-acquired pneumonia and put on a ventilator.
Boyfriend Fadi Fawaz tweeted followers to spread the good news, saying "Christmas at home. I cannot stop smiling today, the best day ever. He is getting better and better. Nothing to worry about, happy days."
Fawraz’s news comes as a great surprise to fans of the “Faith” singer – who have been anxiously waiting for some significant sign of improvement in the singer's condition.
In addion to battling the sometimes fatal infection, breathing equipment applied pressure very close to his vocal cords, putting the “One More Try” hitmaker at risk of losing his ability to sing.
As a result of his illness, the ex-Wham singer was forced to cancel more than 18 concert dates remaining in his Symphonica/ The Orchestral Tour.
Did you know? George Michael's 1987 debut album, "Faith," sold over 1 million copies -- making it the biggest seller of any album ever sold by a British pop artist in 1 week. Since then, the album has gone on to sell more than 19 million copies
