Jackson to spend at least one more day in hospital: family source

SANTA MARIA, California : Ailing pop star Michael Jackson is recovering from his flu, but is expected to spend at least one more day in hospital, a source close to the family said.

"He's still in hopsital," Michael Jackson fan club president and family spokeswoman Angel Howansky told AFP a day after Jackson was rushed to a hospital emergency room near the court where he is on trial for child molestation.

"I understand he will stay (in hospital) today and for a couple of days. He's doing better he's being rehydrated. It's definitely a flu, he's been sick for like a week, but he's better now," she said.

Jackson's parents, Joe and Katherine Jackson, are on their way to the Marian Medical Center in the California town of Santa Maria to see their famous son, she said.

Doctors at the hospital said Monday that Jackson, 46, was being trated for a "flu-like illness with some vomiting."

"His release from hospital will be when he is stable and well enough to go home," said Chuck Merrill, an emergency physician at the hospital.

Jackson is on trial in Santa Maria for allegedly molesting a 13-year-old boy at his nearby Neverland Ranch in early 2003. He has denied the charges.

Jury selection was suspended in his trial after Jackson was rushed to hospital Monday after becoming violently ill on his way to court. - AFP

I am sooooo relieved now that Michael is doing well, you know, ever since I heard the news that he went to the hospital, I've been really worried, and not being able to concentrate on some of my school work. I had TERRIBLE headaches just thinking about it. Plus, it was hard for me to have a good time with my friends just thinking that Michael wasn't feeling well. Now, that I've been updated with good news I can sleep at night... geez, just to think what is going to happen to me once Michael has passed away... I DON'T EVEN WANT TO THINK ABOUT THAT because I know that it is FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR from now.... Gosh... I wuv him! He's my baby! :D (If you hang out w/ me and my friends, I'm known for calling him 'my baby', it's a habit that my friend got me into once she called her boyfriend pookie all the time :lol: )
TTYL! KEEP UPDATING!!! :thumbsup I really appreciate all the good news!!! :D :thumbsup And if you can, recent pictures would REALLY be nice, I just love to see him, he is so georgous! :tooexcite
