So glad he's on the mend!!
Elton John found himself in a UK hospital, following a recent tour of South America, where he contracted a "potentially deadly" infection.
While on a flight back from Santiago, Chile, the legendary singer became very ill, and was taken to hospital. A statement from his rep read:
"After spending two nights in intensive care followed by an extended stay in the hospital, Elton was released from hospital on Saturday, April 22 and is now comfortably resting at home per doctor’s advice,”
“Infections of this nature are rare and potentially deadly. Thankfully, Elton’s medical team identified this quickly and treated it successfully.”
Elton himself then released his own statement:
“I am so fortunate to have the most incredible and loyal fans and apologize for disappointing them,”
“I am extremely grateful to the medical team for their excellence in looking after me so well.”
