Ozzy Faces Six Month Recovery Period

Rocker OZZY OSBOURNE will take six months to recover from injuries sustained after his quad bike accident last Monday (08DEC03).

The 55-year-old singer is now able to breathe unaided and is celebrating his first number one British single, a duet of the 1972 BLACK SABBATH song CHANGES with daughter KELLY OSBOURNE.

Wife SHARON has revealed it will take around half a year for her wildman husband - who slept for a week following the crash - to fully recover.

She says, "Probably about six months. But he will be back, he's not going anywhere. He'll be ordering everybody around, don't worry.

"He is doing so good. He's so much better. He's off the ventilator and breathing on his own, he just has some assistance with some oxygen but he's doing it all on his own.

"He's awake and he's causing havoc. He's busy telling jokes all the time, he's already asked two nurses to marry him.

"It's just amazing what the body does within a period of 24 hours. I saw him the night before and there was no movement, nothing. I came in the next day and he was moving around, his eyes were wandering. He can't talk properly but he's got a little raspy voice.

"He has never had a number one and for me it just goes to show how much people love him. It's a dream come true for him. The first thing I told him when he came to was about his single. He couldn't speak but tears were coming out."
