George almost lost his life in 2011 from his bout with pneumonia. He spoke on that in a later interview:

Via The Mirror: After receiving treatment [for pneumonia] in a Vienna hospital, he made a tearful appearance outside his London home and said it had been “touch and go” whether he lived.Doctors had performed a tracheotomy to keep his airways open and he was unconscious for some of his spell in hospital. He had to learn to walk again as his muscles wasted away during his recovery from the illness.[George Michael] said: “One afternoon I was having lunch and suddenly felt really odd and said to everyone that I need to go and lay down for half an hour on my own. And that’s the last thing I remember for five weeks. It was three weeks of them trying to save my life and two weeks awake. I literally had to learn to walk again and weird stuff, because when they keep you sedated for that long your muscles literally atrophy at an incredible rate. And I just woke up like this feeble old man.”
