Edwyn Collins has been allowed home following six months in hospital after brain surgery.

The singer fell ill in February and had emergency surgery following two cerebral haemorrhages and another operation in May after catching the MRSA superbug.

In a message posted on his official website edwyncollins.com, the star said: “How are you doing? I'm fine, thank you. Home again, thank God. I have many new goals to achieve and a lot of work, but we'll get there in the end.”

He added: “Grace (Maxwell - his wife and manager) showed me your messages and cards. I was out for the count the first weeks, but thank you for all the support. I don't know what to say. Talk again soon, Edwyn Collins.”

As previously reported on NME.COM, [a][/a] took his first steps earlier this month as he recovered from the two brain haemorrhages.

The former Orange Juice was at a specialist rehabilitation unit after being discharged from London's Royal Free Hospital.
