The rapper was listed in a coma for three weeks, after having suffered a heart attack in late February. Doctors found anoxia to be the cause of the attack, after recognizing Guru’s long history of asthma and various lung problems. According to Cure Research, anoxia is a condition that results in lack of oxygen to the body’s tissues.
“The outpouring of love from around the world has been tremendous. I’m reading some of the best e-mails, texts and Twitters that come in and Guru enjoys them. I think that’s what has been helping his recovery and what’s got him in there fighting,” Solar said, adding that Guru’s release date from the hospital is still unknown. —Linda Hobbs
