A judge has granted Charlie Sheen permission to visit his hospitalized wife Brooke Mueller, despite a protective order that had prevented him from having any contact with her, UsMagazine.com confirms.

Judge James Boyd gave Sheen, 44 -- who was arrested Christmas day on suspicion of felony menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief -- permission to be in Mueller's presence only while she is in the hospital. All other terms of the protection order -- including the "no harrassment" points -- remain intact.

Earlier today, Mueller, 32, was checked into the intensive care unit at a Sherman Oaks, Calif., hospital, following emergency oral surgery.

Sheen was supposed to reunite with Mueller Wednesday in a Colorado courtroom, where a judge was going to determine whether to eliminate or extend the protective order.

According to Mueller's lawyer, the couple wants the order lifted so they can mend their marriage.

"They’re very much in love, and they want to try to work it out," attorney Yale Galenter told Us in December. "I think they had a really bad day, which is probably an understatement, but they need their privacy and they need some time."

Although the hearing has been rescheduled for Friday due to Mueller's "oral infection," Us has learned that the couple's attorneys will hold a status conference to discuss postponing it until Feb. 8.
