David Holmes reportedly is unable to move his hands or legs after he hurt his back in a fall while rehearsing a flying stunt last week.
The Daily Mirror said he asked his relatives to update his Facebook page as he recovers in the hospital, so people will know he wants to get back to work.
"David wants to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and wishes. And don't worry ... the stunt-runt will be back," the message said.
The Mirror said Holmes underwent surgery three day ago at a London hospital that specializes in spinal injuries.
