After being diagnosed with pneumonia and hospitalised for two nights, Shona Ferguson has been discharged today and is still on treatment but comfortable at home.

Connie Ferguson can breathe a sigh of relief after her husband Shona was discharged from hospital today.

Shona was hospitalised on Monday night and diagnosed with pneumonia.

Speaking to YOU this morning, Connie said that she was glad to have her husband back home. "I'm relieved that he is back home. I don't like hospitals much and would prefer if he could just be treated at home, where he is more comfortable," she says. After two nights at the Life Flora Clinic in Florida, Shona is feeling much better and is resting at home with his wife and two daughters, who have also fallen ill recently. "In our household alone it started off with our daughter Alicia who became ill with tonsillitis and bronchitis, then Shona who got bronchitis and later, Lesedi who also got bronchitis and now I have it too. Shona is the only one who got worse and developed pneumonia but he is much better now."

"Thanks so much to everyone for their prayers, we truly appreciate it," Connie says.

"People need to take care and not take winter for granted, dress warmly and don't take any cough or tight chest lightly because even the hospitals are full with ill patients, just getting a bed can be a challenge."

The power couple are the names and co-owners behind production company, Ferguson Films and have  been working a film called Step Up to a Start, which stars the likes of Khanya Mkangisa ("Asanda" on Zone 14), Wandile Molebasi ("Blessing" in The Wild) and Kagiso Modupe ("Mangi" on Scandal!)

Aside from their work as producers, Shona is known for his roles as "Dr. Leabua" in Muvhango and Alex Phiri in 'Scandal!',  while Connie launched her 'Connie Body Care' range of beauty products last month.
