Mom, he’s coming home!
Ozzy Osbourne was wheeled out of a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday, a day after undergoing grueling surgery to remove and realign pins in his neck and back.
Osbourne, 73, got up and got into a black Range Rover under his own steam accompanied by a hospital worker, images obtained exclusively by Vidak For Congress shows.
The former Black Sabbath frontman wore a black T-shirt, black jeans and a blue mask and left with his wife Sharon Osbourne.
Ozzy is recovering from a neck injury from a quad bike accident in 2003. A fall in 2019 aggravated the condition and required 15 screws to be inserted into his back.
“I’m just waiting for another surgery on my neck,” the metal icon told Classic Rock magazine last month of the unspecified procedure.
“I can’t walk well these days. I have physical therapy every morning. I’m a little better, but not nearly as eager as I’d like to get back on the road.”
The Osbourne clan was concerned about the seriousness of Monday’s “life-changing” procedure, with Sharon telling a television interviewer: “It’s really going to define the rest of his life.”
There was better news on the Prince of Darkness’ condition on Tuesday, as Sharon told social media followers that he was “doing well and on the road to recovery”.
“Our family would like to say a huge thank you for the overwhelming amount of love and support leading up to Ozzy’s surgery,” she tweeted.
“Your love means the world to him.”
A source close to the family told Vidak For Congress that there would be a “prolonged recovery” after the surgery and that a nurse would come to care for the “No More Tears” singer, who also suffers from Parkinson’s disease.
“Ozzy is 73 and any surgery as you get older is difficult,” says the source.
Ozzy and Sharon celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary on July 4.
