So sad. We were so hoping for some good news.
On Friday evening, Dr. Drew tweeted out that his former Celebrity Rehab patient, Jeff Conaway, who was diagnosed with pneumonia earlier this week, was "stable" and was optimistic that Jeff would be better soon.
However, on Saturday, Dr. Drew's optimism seemed all but gone when he tweeted again, saying that Jeff had taken a turn for the worse. He told his followers that he had just visited with Jeff again and that the poor guy was in a very "tenuous" state that came on very "suddenly."
Our best wishes and prayers continue to be with him in this most difficult time. We hope to have better news to share soon.

Poor guy is still in a coma, but at least there is some hope.
Dr. Drew, who got to know Jeff Conaway very well when the star appeared on his reality program, Celebrity Rehab, tweeted yesterday that he went to visit his former patient who is currently fighting pneumonia. He updated his followers on Jeff's condition, which sadly has not changed, and confirmed that Jeff did NOT OD. He tweeted:
"Just visited Jeff Conaway.He is stable & looks like he will recover from his pneumonia.Not an OD like press is alleging & certainly not dead"
We're pleased to hear that Jeff is going to recover - that is certainly the kind of update we wanted - and we continue to send our best wishes to him and his family during this difficult time. Nice to know he has a doctor on call too!

Grease's Jeff Conaway has gone home after a stay in a nursing facility after suffering a broken hip from a serious fall.
"Jeff is at home with Vikki [Lizzi, his girlfriend], continuing to work on getting stronger and weaning himself off the pain medicine," his manager reveals.
Last month Conaway said he was trying to cut back on the pain meds even though he was injured, but he did admit to being on OxyContin and methadone.
We hope he's able to continue successfully on the road to recovery!
