    Good man Georgey, delighted to see you’re making a recovery.

  2. Bet it is not as bad as living with HIV and the treatment side effect associated with it, getting close to pneumonia stage myself with the illness, will be able to expereince for myself and the rest that which is to come!

      Nobody knows if George might be in the same situation…

      1. I quote from within the story

        ““There are no other health issues with regards to the patient other than the underlying pneumonic disorder, and no further measures had to be taken.”

        Its none of our business unless anyway, the question of GM private life is his and his alone. (Human Right Act)

        1. Well said, Anon

    Merry Christmas George!

  4. Glad to see George is getting better. Hope he continues to improve and rests properly – it takes a long time to get over pneumonia

  5. Good to see him up and about :-)

  6. You’re on the road to recovery, George, and I’m so glad to hear it.

  7. A true star! Lets hope he gets back on the road to touring!

  8. “….adding that he was lucky to have picked up the bug…”

    Aye, right.

    1. You missed out the part about the “Austrian Hospital” which essentially made the comment whole…

  9. Godspeed to ur recovery George! We love u & we always will!

    He looks like an old man. His lungs must be in a terrible state. Possibly the biggest advertisement against cannabis EVER!

    1. Not really since you don’t have to smoke cannabis.

      What do you think you would look like after pneumonia?

      1. Sister Goodlove 24 Dec 2011, 8:05pm

        Gorgeous, babe.

        1. I doubt it sometime – I looked vile after I had pneumonia at the beginning of this year – the only time I can say I definitely looked as appalling

    Good luck for a speedy recovery George.

    Merry Christmas and an even better New Year to both you and your partner. XXX

  12. “Spiritual” eh? Pap and nonsense. What you should be, Mr. Michael, is imbued with a profound sense of respect and admiration for medical science.

    “Spirituality” did not one whit for your life-threatening condition. Hard science did. I appreciate the gratitude you have for the doctors who saved your life, but it would be rather more meaningful if you acknowledged and praised the methods by which they did so, rather than retreating into irrational bunk.

    1. You took the words right out of my mouth.

    2. Let’s not underestimate the power of thought.
      All the best George and happy Holidays to you dear readers,journalists and commentators. Even the nasty ones.

  13. Wish him well on his recovery. And it will take time to build up his strength again.

    So he must take it easy and hope his xmas is a pleasant and relaxing one.

  14. Glad to see hes better. My mother died of this as her immune system wasnt strong enough to fight it off.

    So its good hes recovering and i hope he does honour the tickets of his fans they will appreciate that dearly im sure.

  15. I hope you have a very fast recovery ,and plenty of rest George .

    Right place and the right time, guess some would say he was being looked after!! eh Skinner?!!
    -
    Glad he’s on the mend. Get well George!
