Burt Reynolds -- I'm Leaving the ICU!

Breaking News
Burt 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.
