'Voice' Finalist Jamar Rogers

THUMBS UP

From Hospital Bed

9/13/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0912-Jamar-Rogers-hospital-tmzFormer "The Voice" finalist Jamar Rogers is staying positive following his stint in an intensive care unit at an L.A. hospital -- sending TMZ a pic in which he's smiling and giving a big thumbs up. 

It's a great sign considering Rogers -- who is HIV positive -- was in a bad place earlier this month after suffering a nasty lung infection. 

At one point during his hospital stay, doctors determined Rogers was in critical condition -- but he's doing better now ... and was recently moved out of the ICU. 

Jamar tells us, “They still have me on oxygen but they have lowered it. My body is still super weak but my mind is really strong.”

We're told Jamar has lost a bunch of weight over the past few days -- mainly because he's living on a Jello diet -- but everyone's optimistic that he'll be healthy and singing again in no time. 

Get well soon.

Has anyone noticed how common it is for talent show contestants to suddenly develop some sympathy inducing situation? If you are watching these shows, you are being duped.

I don't know whether "staying positive" is the right term to use for an article about him...

I hope he gets better soon...in fact I hope he has a miracle cure...cause I'm tired of paying for this crap to help fools with HIV, smokers with cancer, gangbangers with bullet holes, EBT "baby mamas" with 8 kids, 90 year old people sucking us dry on doctors bills just so they can stay alive longer and eat cat food and wander around Walmarts looking at a trash cans for 4 hours and bothering everyone with their life stories. I mean, if you are wasting your life just taking up space and dragging others down...then why extend it? Go out in a blaze of glory and get out of the way.

I got a a chance to meet him at a HIV/AIDS event in Chicago. He was super nice and not very "celebrity." I felt like I was talking to an old friend from college. I hope he gets well soon.
