Sharon Osbourne has revealed that her eldest daughter Aimee, 36, had emergency surgery on Sunday to remove her appendix.
The TV personality, 67, appeared on The Talk Monday from her Los Angeles home, discussing her health concerns and how her husband Ozzy’s treatment in Switzerland was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A tearful Sharon admitted while the family is ‘fine’, she finds it ‘a very frightening time to live’ and cries every day.

Sharon said, “We are doing well. I mean, you know, compared to a lot of people, we’re doing fine.

The former X Factor judge then explained their plan to fly to Switzerland to seek treatment to help Ozzy, 71, with his paralyzing nerve damage has been delayed.
“We had to cancel our trip to Switzerland. We were supposed to go April 8th, but we had to cancel for his treatment, “Sharon said.
“We just hang out like everyone else. You know, just try to stay away and be quiet, and, you know, keep it in there.

“But I think these are really frightening times. I just think it’s a very, very terrifying time to live … I cry every day watching the death toll increase and more and more people contract this virus, and all I know is that you’re devastated. To me, I’m like, you know, heartbroken. ‘
The Osbournes have taken additional precautions in recent years to protect themselves against COVID-19 because of Ozzy’s health problems.
The rocker has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, meaning it falls into the category of those more vulnerable to the virus. Those with underlying health problems are more at risk of not recovering if they were to get coronavirus.

The couple’s other daughter, Kelly, was previously seen and begged fans to stay home and adhere to strict closing measures taken by governments in countries around the world to protect people like her father.
Posing with a sign that read ‘#stayhomeforOzzy’, Kelly said, ‘I wish I could say something to comfort you all. I could drop some wisdom on you to relive the fear that surrounds us all now.
“The truth is I’m scared too. Both my parents are at high risk, especially my father.
“If I had known 3 weeks ago when I sent them to Panama, that would be the last time I could hug and kiss them for a while … I would have lasted a little longer.
“But these are the sacrifices we have to make. I stay at home for my mom and dad. If you don’t have anyone to stay at home, I beg you.
“Help put a smile on my dad’s face while he’s quarantined by posting a photo of your best Ozzy impersonation and I love you all.”
Ozzy revealed in an emotional interview with Sharon earlier this year that he was battling Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s causes muscle stiffness, slowness in movement, tremors, sleep disorders, chronic fatigue, a reduced quality of life and can lead to severe disability.
Speaking to Good Morning America, the Black Sabbath star admitted that he could no longer hide his health problems and is taking a “ whole host of ” drugs to treat his nerve pain.
The common illness, he said, started when he fell last year and got nerve pain.
The singer insisted that he was ‘far from’ his death bed – as had been misreported – and said he wanted to ‘surrender’ to his condition for the sake of his fans.
