There has been an update on the condition of Pogues singer Shane MacGowan, who was hospitalized on Monday (December 5).
The “Fairytale of New York” musician has been hospitalized on and off for the past few years.
Earlier this week, MacGowan’s wife, journalist Victoria Mary Clarke, urged fans to “send prayers” to the Pogues frontman.
Now Clarke has tweeted to update concerned fans on the musician’s well-being, stating that “doctors are confident he will be fine”.
“Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent well wishes to Shane MacGowan,” she wrote in a tweet late Tuesday night (December 6).
“He is being treated for an infection and doctors are confident he will be fine. I’m just incredibly grateful to them and all of you,” she added.
For the 64-year-old, who is dependent on a wheelchair after breaking a pelvis in 2015 and a broken knee in 2021, many wishes for recovery are pouring in.
Clarke has since tweeted an old photo of a young MacGowan, thanking fans for their messages.
“So many positive vibes and prayers for @ShaneMacGowan,” she wrote.
“It’s really amazing how kind people are and how kind and thoughtful I love this picture by Andy Calvert.”
