Tori Spelling's husband Dean McDermott is preparing for a long and painful recovery following his recent dirt bike accident as he prepares to undergo rehab.
The Canadian actor and speed enthusiast was admitted to hospital with a punctured and collapsed lung after the incident last week (29Jun10). He was released from the intensive care unit and moved to a regular ward on Friday (01Jul10) after making good progress in his recovery.
But MCDermott admits he still has a long way to go before he will be back to full health.
Updating fans on his condition via his blog, he writes, "I'm healing, slowly. I'll be doing rehab for a while. I messed a few things up when I crashed."
MCDermott gave up professional racing earlier this year (10) after fracturing his shoulder in a motorcycle accident, and he has now vowed to quit his passion for good after the latest health scare.
