Hospitalised rapper Guru has been diagnosed with suffering from low levels of oxygen, three weeks after he had a heart attack in New York.
The 43 year old, one half of pioneering hip-hop duo Gang Starr, collapsed on 28 February (10) and was admitted to a New York hospital, where he fell into a coma.
He underwent surgery earlier this month (Mar10) and doctors have been keeping a close eye on the star since awaking from his coma.
Guru, real name Keith Elam, has since been diagnosed with Anoxia, a condition where the body lacks an adequate supply of oxygen.
But the rapper's condition is stable and he is making progress in his recovery, thanks to the warm wishes of support from fans.
Guru's close friend and spokesman, MC Solar, tells, "The outpouring of love from around the world has been tremendous. I'm reading some of the best e-mails, texts and Twitters that come in and Guru enjoys them. I think that's what has been helping his recovery and what's got him in there fighting."
