Dr. Dre is finally back home after suffering from a brain aneurysm earlier this month. TMZ reports that the hip-hop mogul was released from the hospital on Friday, but doctors will continue to monitor his health. To ensure Dre receives immediate medical attention should something go wrong, Dre will be monitored at home by health professionals for at least the next few weeks. He may not be completely out of the woods yet, but it is certainly a good sign to go back home to sleep in your own bed.
Hip-hop legend Ice T also took to Twitter to announce that Dre was home and apparently much better after reaching out to him personally. “Update: Just FaceTimed with @drdre He just made it home. Safe and looks good,” writes T.
Dre’s health anxiety began when he suffered from a brain aneurysm and was admitted to the intensive care unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on January 4th. He stayed in the intensive care unit until he was moved to a private room last Wednesday. Doctors ran a series of tests during Dre’s hospitalization to see what was causing the hemorrhage in the brain. However, according to reports, they still don’t know, which is why medics will continue to monitor the rapper at home.
With Dr. Dre In the ICU, fans around the world used social media to express their concerns and offer prayers and congratulations. Some of his colleagues also urged everyone to support Dre as well, such as Dre’s NWA rapper Ice Cube. Cube posted a photo of the two rappers on Twitter and wrote, “Send your love and prayers to homie Dr. Dre.”
While he was in the hospital, Dre also posted a message on Instagram thanking everyone for their support. “Many thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and their best wishes,” said Dre the day after his admission. “I’m doing great and I’m being looked after by my medical team. I’ll be out of the hospital and home soon. Greetings to all the great medics at Cedars. One Love !!”
Dre appears to have had the best possible outcome after a brain aneurysm when doctors reportedly told his family that a “bad outcome” was not in sight. Typically, brain aneurysms result in death in about half of all cases, and about 2 in 3 survivors survive permanent neurological damage. In other words, Dre is one of the lucky few.
It was a particularly difficult time for Dre these days. He is currently in the midst of a bitter divorce from his 24-year-old wife. While he was in the hospital, a group of suspected burglars were arrested after allegedly attempting to break into the mogul’s home. This year hasn’t started very well for Dre at all, but hopefully things will get better for him soon. Good luck to Dr. Dre with his further recovery. This message comes to us from TMZ.
