David Cassidy conscious, out of coma
The Partridge Family star was rushed to a Florida, US, hospital on Wednesday and placed in a medically-induced coma.
Although he is now "conscious and surrounded by family” the 67-year-old is reportedly suffering from organ failure and is in need of a transplant.
A source told People magazine: "There had been many family issues because of his alcoholism, but they are all reuniting in support of him. He was delighted to see them."
This is the latest scare following a dementia announcement he made earlier this year, a condition which runs in his family.
Speaking to People magazine in February, he spoke of watching his mother “disappear” as she was taken over by the condition.
In March, he wrote: "To the many thousands of people who have supported me over the last 5 decades I send my love.
"I thank you all sincerely for the support and care you have shown me recently and in the past.
"I am enjoying some time at home, appreciating the warmth and contemplating what I will be doing next. I wanted to let you all know that I am not retired, I do want to play again.
“I just won't tour. I also want to go back into the studio to record Songs My Father Taught Me. I will keep in contact with you and let you know what I am doing.
"Thank you for the many letters and messages of concern and care. I have my good days and very occasionally a bad day.
"I am doing everything my doctors advise in terms of diet and pills. "Happy Trails, DC (sic)"
