Hawaiian singer Don Ho is looking to be released from the hospital by the weekend following a successful pacemaker surgery on Saturday (Sept. 16th). The singer, who found success with the hit songs “Tiny Bubbles,” has been in the hospital since Sept. 13th.
Ho, 76, took part in a new kind of heart treatment in Decemeber, 2005, in Thailand. The new treatment has not been approved in the United States and included taking stem cells from his blood and injecting them into his heart. The treatment was meant to strengthen the heart.
The singer hasn’t announced when he might return to his weekly shows at the Ohana Waikiki Beachcomber hotel in Waikiki – where he normally performs twice a week.
