Doctors reckon it could take up to two months for Ozzy Osbourne to recover
from his quad bike accident. As Sharon Osbourne flew into the UK last night to be with Ozzy, doctors said recovering from this kind of accident can be a slow process.
BUPA's Dr Annabel Bentley told reporters: "How long treatment will take depends on the severity of the injuries and what happens in the first few days. It sounds like he is having all the right treatment done. He is in intensive care on a ventilator. The reason for this is because when someone breaks that many ribs and his collar bone it makes it difficult to breathe. They tend to take only shallow breaths because of the pain caused by their injuries."
On the up side, bookmakers reckon the accident should boost sales of Ozzy's
new single - a cover of the Black Sabbath track 'Changes' with Kelly Osbourne - so much so that the track is now fourth favourite to be Christmas number one.
A spokesman for bookmakers William Hill told reporters: "We were offering
50-1 about Ozzy and Kelly topping the charts, but that was snapped up with
punters placing bets of up to £50 a time. The pair have been backed down to
16-1 fourth favourites and if they have as much support with people buying the record it is a real contender."
