AceShowbiz - Al B. Sure! has given an update on his condition after his son revealed that he was in a coma for two months. In a Twitter post, the R&B legend assured that he's "on the mend" following his hospitalization.
"A very humble thank you for the prayers my @WBLS1075NYC family. I'm alive, awake, on the mend," he wrote along with a picture of him seemingly learning to walk again with the help of some medical staff in the hospital.
Remaining positive, the 54-year-old singer/songwriter added, "Submissively grateful #AllPraiseisDuetoAllah. I'll share more of my health experience soon in hopes to encourage us all to stay on top of our #HealthandWellness #GoSeetheDoctor ABS!"
Prior to his tweet, his son Albert Joseph Brown IV gave the spotlight to his father while celebrating his birthday. "Thank your every 1 for the bday wishes!! been kinda out of it and in my own world!!" he posted on Instagram on Monday, October 31. "@officialalbsure POPS BEEN IN A COMA FOR 2 months and he just made it out!! So I'm much better and ready to get back on my s**t! It's time to get the f**k up pop!! We got S**t to do!!!!

Al B. Sure!'s son, however, has since edited the caption, claiming that his father in fact has been "hospitalized FOR 2 months."
Al B. Sure! has indeed been sharing with his followers about his health setback. Back in the summer, he posted photos of himself before he underwent a surgery, but has not detailed the health problems he's going through.
"Waking up daily to monitors, wires and machines keeping you stable is a new experience," he wrote in an August post. "I have a very humbling, newfound respect for the #Nurses #RN's & #Doctors that are are on the #frontline and there around the clock making certain that all is well."
