Sharon Osbourne: Jack is Doing Well in MS Battle

Sharon and Jack Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne says her son Jack Osbourne is doing "really, really well" in his battle against multiple sclerosis.

The TV presenter insists the 26-year-old star - who learned of his illness in April, just two weeks after his fiancee Lisa Stelly gave birth to their first child, Pearl Clementine - will survive the disease because of his "positive state of mind," and she has thanked everyone who has supported her son through the traumatic time.

Jack Osbourne: I Had MS Symptoms For Some Time

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Child Stars,

Jack OsbourneJack Osbourne has had symptoms of multiple sclerosis for "three or four years."

The 26-year-old star was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease - which affects the central nervous system - five weeks ago after suffering vision loss in his right eye but has now realized he was showing signs of the condition for some time prior to his doctor's assessment.

"I guess I've been having symptoms for the last three or four years, but I didn't realize it. I had problems with my bladder, problems with my stomach and then, about two years ago, my legs went numb for two months and I just thought I had pinched a nerve," he said.

Despite suffering from vision loss, Jack - who was diagnosed just two weeks after his fiancee Lisa Stelly gave birth to their daughter Pearl - says he has now regained "about 80 per cent" of his sight back, though he doesn't know whether it will completely return: "They don't know if it will ever improve beyond that, but everyone's different. [My vision] will return to some capacity but like I said, everyone is different, some people are left with a blind spot, some people return a 100 per cent, some people never even get anything back, so it's hit or miss."

Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne broke down in tears on The Talk yesterday morning. The showbiz matriarch couldn't keep her emotions in check when she spoke to thank fans for their messages of support following the news that her 26-year-old son Jack has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

"He's great - he's doing really, really good and I want to thank everyone for all their texts and goodwill and love they send to us. Thank you to everyone for all their good wishes. It's been amazing - but for Jack because I really believe that vibes of prayer help. And what I'm doing right now is not helping because I'm just feeling sorry for myself, and that is no good. So we just have to think positively and get on with this show that we love," she said in between sobs.

Jack Osbourne Diagnosed With MS

Jack OsbourneJack Osbourne has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

The 26-year-old TV star - the son of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne - and his fiancee Lisa Stelly welcomed their first child, Pearl, in April and Jack revealed getting the diagnosis two weeks after her birth left him devastated.

"While I was waiting for the final results, I got really, really angry. The timing was so bad. I'd just had a baby, work was going great - I kept thinking, 'Why now?' Then I got really sad for about two days, and after that I realized, being angry and upset is not going to do anything at this point - if anything it's only going to make it worse. 'Adapt and overcome' is my new motto," he said.

Jack discovered his condition when he lost 60 per cent of the sight in his right eye. MS is an autoimmune disease which affects the central nervous system through the brain and spinal cord and people with the illness show symptoms with a change in their balance, vision and thought processes.

MS Santa Gets Fired

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Microsoft, PC / Laptop,

Santa on ComputerIt seems that one Santa had a little too much ho-ho-ho at the expense of Microsoft. Last year, the company instigated AIs at northpole@live.com for kids to add to their Windows Live Messenger contact list. When a reader in the UK noticed that his young nieces had been talking to it this year, he also noted that their conversation turned from talking about eating pizza to another subject we will refer to as “more mature.”

Spokesperson Adam Sohn says, “If they’re meant to be cheeky and have fun with you, they may repeat certain things back,” he said, or respond to certain words with “that’s naughty.”

Although they tried to clean up its act, they finally shut down the service, undoubtedly fearing now that the word was out, others might be tempted to push it to its limit.
