AceShowbiz - Another conflicting report on Jamie Foxx's condition has surfaced as he remains hospitalized. According to a source, the actor's family is "hoping for the best" but "preparing for the worst" despite recent reports that he showed improvement.
While friends have been giving positive updates on Jamie's condition, the source notes that he wouldn't remain in the hospital for almost a month if he is okay. "Jamie's people are saying he's doing OK and improving, while doctors try to get to the bottom of his problems - but he wouldn't be in a hospital this long if he was anything close to OK," the source tells Radar Online.
On May 3, Jamie posted on Instagram for the first time since his hospitalization. "Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed," he wrote, adding emojis of praying hands, a red heart and a fox. But there was no photo attached, prompting a speculation that he didn't post it himself.
This was after his friend Charlie Mack shared an alarming post about the Oscar winner's health. "Pray for Foxx!!!!!!!!!!" the film producer penned as he said that the 55-year-old needs a "miracle." He wrote in a lengthy caption, "Good morning IG, I need you all to constantly keep our beloved brotha @iamjamiefoxx up whom we all [love] & care for dearly in our Hearts, Minds & Prayers!!!! We need you back Bro @iamjamiefoxx you're fighter, strong & resilient so I know your fortitude. Your not going out like that."
Previously, Radar Online reported that Jamie's health issue was so serious that he almost died. "Jamie suffered a serious medical episode and needed immediate attention," the site cited a source as saying in late April. The "Django Unchained" star reportedly had to be revived by doctors, but their immediate actions luckily saved his life.
"It was touch and go for days with him, and he had to be revived - he is very lucky to be alive!" the so-called insider added of his condition at the time. "He's very lucky he got the treatment he did."
However, a most recent update shared earlier this month claimed that Jamie "is stable and not in a life-threatening situation." A source told PEOPLE on May 6, "[Doctors] are doing more tests and want to be completely sure that he will be okay before allowing him to [be discharged]."
