Phil Harris Emerges From Coma, Tells Doctors "Don't F*%k Up"

by at .

Stroke? What stroke?

Deadliest Catch Captain Phil Harris woke up from a medically induced coma yesterday, according to reports, and even did so with typically salty flair.

Sons Jake and Josh Harris, who are also featured on the Discovery Channel series with their dad, said he "showed some good signs of improvement."

Jake and Josh say he was "squeezing our hands and even summoning his trademark captain's bluntness by telling doctors and nurses, 'Don't f--k up.'"

Somehow not surprising!

Here's wishing Phil Harris (middle) a speedy, salty recovery.

The elder Harris, a Deadliest Catch fixture since the show's launch, was found unconscious during an offload of crab (it's in season) late last week.

He was airlifted to Anchorage, Alaska, where endured 12 hours of surgery and the Cornelia Marie skipper was placed in a medically induced coma.

Harris had been placed in a coma to reduce brain swelling.

The stroke he suffered occurred near St. Paul Island, Alaska. The Emmy-winning Deadliest Catch takes place there and on the high seas, of course.

Get well soon, Phil!
