Mumford & Sons star Ted Dwane is recovering well after waking up following brain surgery, according to his father.

The bassist was hospitalized on Monday to undergo an emergency operation to treat a blood clot on his brain, prompting the band to axe three U.S. gigs this week.

Dwane’s father John has now revealed the surgery went well and the family was relieved when the rocker regained consciousness.

He tells Britain’s The Sun, “It’s been terribly worrying — but he’s come round fine and we’re just glad about that and that he’s safe. We’re all really relieved.”

We are pleased to report that our beloved Ted is making a steady recovery from his operation and wearing his newly acquired shaven-headed hairstyle with enviable levels of suave. A huge, huge thank you to all for your messages of support; the man himself is rather overwhelmed.

The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress. He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it has been medically proved that he does indeed have a brain.

what happened to ted?:3

Ted was rushed to the hospital last Monday (June 10th) for what doctors determined to be a blood clot on his brain. He required emergency surgery to remove it. Thankfully, now he is home and on the road to a full recovery—though with considerably less hair on his typically fluffy head.

You can find the initial announcement from Mumford & Sons, and further details regarding the situation, here.
