Winner of “America’s Got Talent,” Michael Grimm, is ‘sedated’ and on a ventilator because of an unidentified illness.

Lucie Zolcerva-Grimm, the singer’s wife, told fans that they were still unsure of what was wrong after spending more than a week in the hospital.

With an undetermined illness, Michael Grimm has been in the hospital for more than a week.
According to the America’s Got Talent winner’s wife Lucie Zolcerva-Grimm, who posted about it on his Instagram on Tuesday, the singer-guitarist was “sedated” and on a ventilator in the ICU.

She tearfully said, “We’re in a difficult situation,” adding that the health scare had “been an emotional rollercoaster.” “I know you all love Michael, and while I’d like to respect his privacy and honor his request to remain anonymous, we’re kind of in a precarious position.”

Lucie continued, “Over the Memorial Day weekend, Michael’s health deteriorated, and I had to take him to the hospital.” She said, “You might have noticed that he was having a lot of health issues, lacking energy, and not being able to fulfill shows.”

No doctor, according to her, could assess the singer’s health.
She recalled: “He was looking sicker and sicker; he could hardly walk; he couldn’t lift his head; he couldn’t answer me right away; he would be very irritable.”

Lucie said she had taken him to the hospital’s emergency room, but a stroke was ultimately ruled out. Her husband “started talking gibberish” while they were there, she claimed, and “all of a sudden, physical tremors set in and his blood pressure skyrocketed.” She also claimed that “toxins” from the illness were affecting her husband’s brain, causing him to “start talking gibberish.”

America’s Got Talent season five winner Michael, a Mississippi blues singer, was finally admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and has spent the entire week there.

Lucie explained that she has been emotionally and physically exhausted as a result of the week-long medical emergency. She said that in order to keep him alive and prevent a stroke or cardiac arrest, they had to put him on a ventilator and sedate him heavily.

She said, “The good news is that the doctors were able to remove the ventilator today, and he is breathing on his own, so he’s doing better. But over the past week, his body had been under a lot of strain. In order to prevent him from collapsing or convulsing as a result of changes in his blood pressure, he is still sedated.

The precise nature of Michael’s condition is still unknown to doctors, Lucie said, adding that they are taking each day as it comes and that her main concern is to simply be by his side and make sure he continues to get better.

She thanked the medical staff for helping the singer while he “remains unconscious” and warned the audience that he will need a lot of time to recover once he is awake.

Michael will have to regain consciousness, which he hasn’t yet. As a result of spending more than a week in bed, he will now require physical therapy, she continued. He must repair his vocal cords, get all of his organs back to normal and functioning, restore his voice, and emotionally heal in order to regain his health. So, it might take some time.
