Flatley Suffered Mystery Illness Relapse

Dance star MICHAEL FLATLEY has enlisted a team of doctors find a cure for the mystery immune virus that left him fighting for his life last December (06). Flatley was taken ill while rehearsing for Celtic Tiger, his latest show. The mystery virus left him hospitalised for weeks, amid reports it might rob him of the ability to dance. The 48-year-old - whose new wife Niamh gave birth to the couple's first child in April (07) - has recovered, but still is still suffering and recently experienced a relapse. He says, "I have a wonderful team of doctors who are doing every test possible. I feel that if anyone can cure this illness, they can. I'm back on medication. Some days I feel like I'm getting better and other days I suffer setbacks. When we go for walks I find myself short of breath. Sometimes it seems very surreal. I'm so used to being in control of my body. I so much wish I had my full health. I want to be a dad who is full of life. My son is my biggest motivation to get better."
