Guru Now In Stable Condition, Says Rep — Diagnosed with Anoxia

GuruIt’s been nearly a month since news first broke of Guru’s heart attack, but this week new info regarding the rapper’s status was released.

The rapper’s publicist said this week that Guru has been upgraded to stable condition, and also revealed that he’s been diagnosed with Anoxia, effects from a lengthy history of asthma and lung problems.

Anoxia is a condition in which there is an absence of oxygen supply to an organ’s tissues although there is adequate blood flow to the tissue, says online medical websites.  The term is used to describe a condition that occurs in an organ when there is a diminished supply of oxygen to the organ’s tissues.

Guru is currently recovering after undergoing surgery. He is no longer in a coma, said his camp.

While statements have been released in Guru’s behalf since being hospitalized, they’ve caused controversy among the rapper’s family, raising questions from fans and the hip-hop community.

In a press released issued Monday (March 22), reps for Guru said the rapper hasn’t been in contact with his former Gangstarr partner DJ Premier in over 7 years. Premier has expressed concern about Guru’s condition since the news broke, awaiting news just like everyone else. Apparently, the rapper’s camp wants to make it clear that no one, not even Premier, can release accurate info about Guru’s condition.

“That’s something I don’t want to talk about. I don’t want to talk about the past. The past is the past,” Guru said, according to the press release. “It is what it is. It was great, but that was then and this is now.”

At press time, it was unclear when Guru would be released from the hospital. However, his partner Solar said the rapper has been reading letters, emails and tweets from fans and is enjoying the support.

“The outpouring of love from around the world has been tremendous,” Solar said. “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.”
