Nadine took to her Facebook account on Saturday morning, 8 July to thank everyone for praying and supporting Derick Hougaard, who was recently released from the hospital.

“Lovely chat with LiMari on RSG today. Matters of the heart, life, Derick’s health, day-to-day holding space, my Saturday recipe and colours being performed at Atterbury theatre 20 July. Thank you for so much love.”

The singer and TV host revealed to Jacaranda FM a week ago that Hougaard was awake and had no brain damage, and that he can function and speak.

“However, he still whispers when he speaks and gets constant oxygen. After more than two weeks in intensive care, the lungs get tired easily and quickly when they have to breathe on their own, so he is very exhausted… But he wants to start walking and get his vocal cords back.”
