At 87, Joe Jackson has turned into the iron man, so to speak.

We say that because he’s doing well after a series of medical emergencies … so well in fact we hear he’s he’s cracking jokes in his hospital bed.

On Sunday we reported that he suffered a stroke and partial blindness. Well that was then. Today a Jackson family rep tells TMZ that Papa Joe’s speech is not impaired and his vision is restored.

As was reported, an artery burst behind his eye, causing temporary blindness and possibly triggering a stroke.

Now we’re finding out that in addition to the stroke, Jackson suffered three heart attacks while he was hospitalized and his heart actually stopped for 10 seconds. He had a pacemaker implanted.

Mr. Jackson says he’s aware how close to death he was and is grateful to be alive.
