Farrah Fawcett checked out of the hospital Thursday with her long time companion Ryan O’Neal at her side.
The 62-year-old actress was hospitalized earlier this week due to internal bleeding, which they’re saying was not directly related to the anal cancer she’s been suffering from since relapsing in 2007; rather, the hematoma was related to a “small procedure” Farrah had done at a clinic in Germany.
Fawcett spent some time in a wheel chair because she was in so much pain, but her doctor, Dr. Lawrence Piro, told People magazine that the Charlie’s Angels star is again up and moving about.
“She’s walking and in great in spirits and looking forward to celebrating Easter at home…Her home has been stocked with her favorite teas and food and she’s looking forward to enjoying them.”
I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but a “small procedure” at a clinic in Germany seems kinda freaky-deaky to me.
This is probably totally inappropriate, but whenever I hear about cancer patients receiving alternative medicine, I think of the episode of Seinfeld when George thought he was dying because a pregnant smoking card reader told him was; so he went to Kramer’s friend for “treatment” where he turned a funny color and had to sit on the floor with crossed legs while the “healer” held a triangle over his head.
Hey, I’m not knocking alternative medicine – I’ve seen its effectiveness first hand. Farrah Fawcett is clearly suffering and if alternative medicine can relieve that in anyway, I’m all for it.
Get well soon, Farrah Fawcett.
