David Cassidy is reportedly out of his coma, but remains in intensive care.
The 67-year-old actor was rushed to hospital last week after suffering from liver and kidney failure, and whilst he was placed into a medically induced coma upon admission to the hospital, it has now been claimed that over the weekend he regained consciousness.
It was previously reported that David's family, including son Beau Cassidy, ex-wife Sue Shifrin - whom he was married to from 1991 to 2016, and with whom he has Beau - and brother Patrick Cassidy had rushed to the Florida hospital to be by his side, and sources say the star was ''delighted'' to see his loved ones.
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.''
The 'Partridge Family' star - who also has daughter Katie Cassidy with Sherry William - is said to be in need of a liver transplant, but insiders believe the search for a healthy organ is ''futile''.
One source said previously: ''There's really no issue anymore for a transplant. It's futile.''
Whilst another added: ''It's looking grim.''
This comes as the latest health scare for David, who revealed earlier this year he was battling with dementia, which is a persistent disorder of the mental processes caused by brain disease and marked by memory disorders and personality changes.
The 'Daydreamer' singer took to his website to share a touching message where he thanked his fans for supporting him throughout his career, and for sending ''messages of concern and care'' during his struggle with the illness.
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)''
