George Michael's condition worsened overnight say doctors
viennatimes.at ^ | November 25, 2011 | Vienna Times

Posted on 11/25/2011 11:54:45 AM PST by Berlin_Freeper

The hospital refused to say why the star was moved but it is believed it was decided that the singer's condition was so acute that it would be better if he was moved to the AKH - the biggest in Europe and where many of the continent's top medical experts are based because of the advanced facilities it offers for research as well as treatment.

The hospital has two skyscrapers, identified for navigating around the huge complex as the red tower and the green tower. He is currently in intensive care on the 13th floor of the red tower as a result of heart problems believed to be caused by the shortage of oxygen caused by his pneumonia.

On Thursday afternoon he was fitted into a special full-body bed designed to keep all the pressure off his lungs and to help them to function - so far without any sign of improvement.

Doesn’t sound good. I’m sure his ‘lifestyle’ and drug use has done him no favors. Sad.

The immune system of most gay guys are under a WAY higher degree of compromise than straights —the typical LISTED cause of death of men with AIDS at least in San Francisco is pneumonia or tuberculosis.

Their immune system is constantly having to fight off bad stuff, so they finally fall prey to something opportunistic —that’s true even if they don’t have AIDS, actually.

I don’t want to speculate, but this sounds a lot like what they do with someone who has full-blown AIDS.

Any chance he could just succumb to his voluntary contracted illness and be done with it? Get him out of our misery. Sorry folks. Just not feeling anyone’s pain today.

"I’m sure his ‘lifestyle’ and drug use has done him no favors. Sad."

It is sad; while many in the American pro-life movement picked up on the "Choose Life" t-shirts he wore in an early video, I believe the slogan actually originated from a British anti-drug campaign.

True. It’s a good idea not to do certain things with one’s body. Being chaste and abstaining from homosexual sex has never killed anybody.

It's a horrible disease and a miserable death , but George Michael has been a poster child for a certain "lifestyle" for decades so I suppose it was only a matter of time. I feel bad for him. the same way I'd pity a 2 pack a day smoker who's dying of lung cancer. It's a bad way to go but no surprise.

UGh remember when George Michael was caught in the bushes cruising for sex with that random, hideous, fat 58 year old jobless van driver. The guy had a nasty stained mattress in the back of his van.

Flashback to Freddie Mercury:

He died of bronchopneumonia brought on by AIDS on 24 November 1991, only one day after publicly acknowledging he had the disease.

Indeed. I believe all moral codes have a basis in physical reality - restrictions on diets and sexual conduct in ancient times were not only good for society, but also meant to protect one from disease and death. Ancients may not have our science, but they saw cause and effect very clearly.

Had a gay co-worker who died from pneumonia related complications. He was smart and skilled at his work. Sad to see him go but his lifestyle and AIDS got him.
He was very unabashed and outspoken about his gayness.
He was a likeable guy nonetheless. Oh well.

It’s a shame. Wham! and their stadium concerts always epitomized those halcyon days (for me, at least) of the early ‘80s.

I believe Liberace did, too.

It’s such a shame these very talented people choose to destroy themselves.

I was a music major at uni and the department was full of them. Friends and I would talk a ‘cute guy’ and if they turned out to be gay....we’d always say...”What a waste!”.

If he does go, I just hope that England doesn't lose it's mind and make his passing out to be the most lamentable mourning since Princess Di.

This is sad, to lose such a talented artist. He certainly is gay, but whats really bad, was his advocacy, of sorts, of dangerous, indiscreet, random, casual sex. “F*ck you man, you don’t know my culture”... or something like that, he said when he was arrested. A real shame in some way, his choices in life may lead to his premature passing.

How true.

It is too bad that our public schools and most of the rest of our society today laugh at that as something ignorant and backwards.
