George Michael "on the mend"

George will reportedly have to spend Christmas in hospital but is on the road to recovery.

His boyfriend Fadi Fawaz announced the news and says he's remained at Michael's side 24-7.

"He is on the mend but it looks like he'll be celebrating Christmas in the hospital. I spend every day at his bedside"

The Former Wham! star is being treated for pneumonia at a hospital in Vienna and there were early fears that the 48-year-old's vocal chords could be permanently damaged due to being on a ventilator.

Dr Gerrit Wohlt told The Sun: 'It depends how long he spends on the ventilator, but in the worst case his illness could seriously affect his singing capacity. 

The pressure is very close to his vocal cords and it could affect them." 

George was forced to cancel his entire 2011 tour due to the illness but his condition seems to be improving with each passing day.
