Chris Young appears to be feeling better after being hospitalized Wednesday because of a leg infection.  He took to Twitter to thank fans for all the well wishes and offer a bit of a medical update.  Click to read his tweets.

Chris remains in the hospital, but is out of ICU.  While no one has shed any light on what caused his leg infection, he seems to have regained his sense of humor.


Chris later corrected the second tweet to say it was a central line not a direct line. Sounds to me like he might be chatting up the nurses.  Chris cancelled all his shows through this weekend, including his stops on Brad Paisley's "Beat This Summer Tour."

The Tennessean reports Chris became ill on a flight to his Montana show and was taken from the airport by ambulance to a Denver hospital.

His mother, Becky Harris, is with the singer in the hospital and said Friday that doctors still don’t know what caused the infection or what type of infection it was. However, her son is feeling better and is up walking around.

She expects him to be released from the hospital in a few days.
