"[It's] good to be with you guys, and to be with everybody here, who is a family," she said. "So I have a second family. I don't only have one, I have two, and just to have all this outpouring of positive reaction from everyone that watches the show, and our friends, it's heartwarming. And I know that Ozzy will be just over the moon. He will be taken aback."

"I'm good. I feel very good. I feel very strong," she continued. "People have been amazing with their outpouring of love for my husband, and I thank you. Friends that we haven't spoken to in years have come out and supported Ozzy, and it makes me feel good. And to everyone, thank you."

Sharon said that no matter the prognosis, they aren't going to stop fighting until Ozzy is back on tour.

"We're not going to stop until Ozzy is back out there, on that stage, where he belongs," she said of her husband. "It was what he was born to do."

"There's so many different types of Parkinson's. It's not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body," Sharon said about his diagnosis on Tuesday. "It's like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.

"It's been terribly challenging for us all," Ozzy chimed in. "I did my last show New Year's Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves."

"I got a numbness down this arm for the surgery, my legs keep going cold," he told GMA. "I don't know if that's the Parkinson's or what, you know, but that's — see, that's the problem. Because they cut nerves when they did the surgery. I'd never heard of nerve pain, and it's a weird feeling."

Sharon revealed that they're going to Switzerland to seek further treatment.

"We've kind of reached a point here in this country where we can't go any further because we've got all the answers we can get here," she explained. "So in April – we're going to a professional in Switzerland. And he deals with – getting your immune system at its peak."
