Jackson Family Patriarch Joe Jackson Is Making A Good Recovery Two Months After His Terrifying Health Scare.
Michael Jackson's father was admitted to a hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil in July (15) after suffering a stroke.
He subsequently underwent heart surgery to fit a pacemaker, and is now recovering at home.
Jackson's grandson Taj Jackson has now given an update on his progress, telling Billboard.com he is "doing a lot better".
He adds, "(The) prognosis is good. He's strong and at the same time he's got Jackson hard-headedness of like when you're supposed to take it easy, not taking it easy. So that's the only thing I worry about."
Following the 87 year old's release from hospital, the Jackson family thanked staff at the Brazilian medical centre for taking such good care of him.
The statement reads, "On behalf of our father, Joe Jackson, we wish to thank the entire staff at Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein for the fantastic care he has received. In particular, thanks go to Dr. Marco Knobel, Dr. Alexandre Pierei and Dr. Jose Luis Guioto for their world class expertise and professionalism...
"We also send our love and appreciation to all the wonderful people of Sao Paulo and throughout Brazil for your amazing hospitality, support and prayers. We have been deeply touched by everyone in your beautiful nation and it made a huge difference in our father's quick recovery. Obrigado (thank you)! The Jackson Family."
