Between his battle with Parkinson’s disease and dealing with spinal/nerve pain, the past few years of Ozzy Osbourne‘s life have been quite strenuous, to say the least. While the heavy metal legend is eager to get back out and perform, his son Jack recently spoke up and shared that he does not see his dad touring again.

During a new conversation with the Daily Mail, Sharon Osbourne spoke about her relationship with her husband and opened up about what it’s like for her to see him struggle with his health.

Regarding their relationship, she says, “Well, for nearly five years my husband’s been really sick. Relationships change all the time, as we change.”

Osbourne adds, “We’re at a stage where I’ve been taking care of my husband, not because I have to but because I want to and I love him.”

She further notes that, at this point, Ozzy’s health is a matter of “recuperating” and being careful:

“He’s had seven operations in five years. There’s nothing more they can do. Now it’s about recuperating. He was on huge amounts of blood thinners so you have to be careful, because if you fall again you could bleed out. It’s like he’s a piece of china and you’ve got to put cotton wool around him.”

She continues, speaking to what it’s like for her to see her husband change: “It’s just been heartbreaking for me to see my husband in a position where he’s not self-sufficient, he needs help. He was so vibrant, with such a zest for life. But you learn to adapt.”

Osbourne then shares, “I will always be there for my husband. I adore him. I owe him so much. He gave me the best things in my life, my kids.”

Back in October, during an episode of The Osbournes podcast, Sharon opened up about her and Ozzy’s medically assisted suicide pact.
