Sharon appeared this Thursday on The Talk and revealed that Ozzy is still not okay. She said:
“His hand hasn’t healed, and it’s one of these things where they go, ‘No, tomorrow you’re going to be fine.’ But it hasn’t been fine, and in fact , he’s going into the hospital today and he’s going to have another procedure done on his hand.”
Sharon also felt sad about the canceled tour dates and she said on behalf of Ozzy:
“He feels he’s let down his audience, but I hope that everyone understands. He’s gonna be back.”
Ozzy’s Instagram page had a post which read:
“Ozzy will likely require another surgery in the coming days to treat multiple infections in his right hand.”
Last week Sharon had spoken at length about Ozzy’s first emergency surgery. She had revealed:
“He had to have this operation where they cut the side of his thumb and this [middle] finger, and they had to get rid of the infection.”
After this surgery, Ozzy had thought that he would be okay and had updated his fans on his Instagram. He wrote:
“I cant wait to get out of here tomorrow, thank you to all of the wonderful Doctors and Nurses taking care of me. #NoMoreTours2 Shows now: Oct 13 – Las Vegas @MGMGrand Oct 15 – @HollywoodBowl Oct 18 – San Diego @MattressFirmAmp Oct 20 – Mountain View @ShorelineAmphitheatre.”
