Rick Ross isn't letting a couple of seizures get him down.

Despite suffering the health scares on two separate flights on Friday, The Teflon Don was feeling well enough to make it to Memphis for the grand opening of his Wing Stop restaurant on Sunday night.

Now that's some finger-lickin' good news.

"My brother ROZAY!!IS GOOD!!!," tweeted Ross' homie, DJ Khaled, who also posted a Twitpic of the 35-year-old MC outside his chicken shack with his manager, Alex "Gucci Pucci" Bethune.

Ross was originally set to attend the promotional event on Saturday, but his Friday-morning Delta flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Ft. Lauderdale when he suffered a seizure and lost consciousness after takeoff.

After receiving medical care at a local hospital, he hopped a private jet again bound for Memphis, but that flight was diverted when Ross had a second seizure and was rushed to an ER in Birmingham, Ala.

In between the medical emergencies, his rep told Billboard the heavyset rapper was recovering and doing "fine," though no word exactly how he finally got to Tennessee.

However he was forced to cancel a Friday-night gig with the University of Memphis basketball team and a Saturday night concert in Greensboro, S.C. less than an hour before it started, though the show went on with DJ Khaled and Marsha Ambrosius.

Ross' next performance is set for Oct. 21 at the Tabernacle in Atlanta.
