Following a distressing and shocking medical emergency, recent reports indicate that Jamie Foxx is steadily improving at a Georgia hospital. In fact, close sources shared to People that the actor is "awake and alert" as doctors continue to run tests and monitor his state. Moreover, Martin Lawrence also said that his health is on an upward trend towards healing and wished his family the best. Of course, this doesn't mean that Foxx is out of the woods yet, but it's a heartening update on his situation. Fans around the world expressed concern for his emergency, especially as some reports indicated that it could've been a much more tragic affair.

Fortunately, most updates since the news of his hospitalization broke reported that he was getting much better. Also, even since the news broke, his family let fans know that his rapid transportation to a medical facility meant prompt healing. "We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” Corinne Foxx shared on Instagram. “Luckily, due to quick action and great case, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time. Much love, The Foxx Family."

Jamie Foxx Is "Awake & Alert" According To New Reports

After Jamie Foxx wound up in the hospital, millions of fans sent an outpour of sympathy and support, including celebrities. For example, LeBron James took to Twitter to share a message to the Collateral star. "Sending my thoughts and prayers to the heavens above to my brother @iamjamiefoxx!!!! Get well and back to yourself SOONER THAN LATER! God willing." For those unaware, Foxx was in Georgia fill-in the action-comedy flick Back In Action. Unfortunately, it faced many production issues before this much larger emergency.

Even though he's still hospitalized, more reports indicate not just recovery in the medical center, but recovery on set. During Foxx's treatment, his stunt double has reportedly been contributing to scenes in his film where he can, so the production is still underway. While that might not fix things completely, at least we've gotten mostly positive signs that the 55-year-old pop culture legend will be back soon.
