This just in from HollyScoop:
Patrick Swayze has reportedly checked into the hospital this morning for pneumonia.
A&E president and general manager Robert DeBitetto tells The Hollywood Reporter:
“Patrick has asked that I tell you that this morning he checked himself into the hospital for observation,” said A&E president and general manager Robert DeBitetto.
“Chemotheraphy can take its toll on the immune system and illnesses are a part of that. Patrick wishes me to tell you that he’s very sorry he cannot attend, but plans to get back to promoting ‘The Beast’ soon. He thanks everybody for the outpouring of support. We hope to see him back on his feet soon.”
No further details have been released, but an announcement from the TCA is expected to be made shortly.
Oh no, I hope Patrick is ok. He looked so thin and frail in his interview with Barbara Walters. Being treated for pneumonia when you have a fatal disease like cancer is never good; I pray Patrick Swayze pulls through. Bernie Mac was hospitalized with pneumonia, and we all know how that turned out.
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs. Many different organisms can cause it, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Pneumonia can range from mild to severe, and can even be deadly. The severity depends on the type of organism causing pneumonia, as well as your age and underlying health.
