Since being hospitalized in Vienna for pneumonia two weeks ago, George Michael‘s health is “improving steadily,” doctors at the AKH hospital said last week. But it sounds like the 48-year-old’s illness was so severe (and pneumonia can be fatal) that doctors want to keep him there longer for testing.
“I spend every day at his side,” boyfriend Fadi Fawaz told reporters. “He’s on the mend but it looks like he’s here for Christmas.”
Michael fell ill while on his European Symphonica tour and has since had to cancel the 14 remaining dates.
