Burt Reynolds

I'm Leaving the ICU!

breaking news

0126-burt-reynolds-tmzBurt Reynolds is on the road to recovery after battling a scary case of the flu this week -- which left him hospitalized in the ICU​ -- as he's officially being moved to the regular wing of the Florida hospital.

A rep for Burt tells TMZ the actor's fever broke this morning -- which is what the doctors had been waiting for -- and he will make the move out of the ICU today.

We're told his family and friends are extremely happy to see him recovering ... considering earlier in the week it was very "touch and go."

The condition of his mustache remains the same.

I hope someone in his family and or friends will see the 'good' messages out here, and let him know that we are thinking of him and wish him the very best. Get well soon : ), so that you can get out of there, as there is 'no place like home'..... and of course, a hospital has to be the absolute worse place in the world to get any rest at all.
