Has this week worn you out? Amy Schumer’s had it worse.
The comedian has taken to social media to reveal that she’s spent the past five days in the hospital.
This is serious.
Beside a series of photos that show Amy in a hospital bed, she writes:
“Hereâ€™s what Iâ€™ve been up to this week. I was hospitalized for 5 days with a horrible kidney infection.”
That is not good.
“I want to give a big thank you to the doctors, the bad ass nurses, also my husband whoâ€™s name is, i want to say, Chris?”
“And my sisters Kimby and mol who have been by my side the whole time.”
They must be very concerned for her. And of course they are — they love her.
She then speaks to her fans:
“I wanted to share this with you because this is sexy as hell.”
On a more serious note, she wants to apologize for having to cancel.
“But mostly because I was meant to go to London for the opening of I Feel Pretty and my doctors have told me thatâ€™s a no go.”
I Feel Pretty, of course, is a new film starring Amy Schumer, Emily Ratajkowski, and Michelle Williams.
“Iâ€™m really disappointed selfishly to miss this trip because I love London and Europe in general and all the great people (food) there.”
(In my experience, food in the US tends to taste better than most of what you’ll find in Europe, but … Amy has a brand to maintain)
“But I need to put my health first.”
She wants to express her gratitude.
“I am so grateful for all the support the movie is getting.”
She almost starts to sound a little (understandably) loopy, though it’s hard to tell if it’s just Amy Schumer being Amy Schumer or if her illness and stay in the hospital are taking its toll.
“I hope people check it out in England and everywhere else in the world.”
Is it weird that it’s kind of touching that she’s plugging her movie from her hospital bed?
“Itâ€™s sweet and fun and you will walk out feeling better.”
Naturally, we all hope that she feels better, too.
“Which is something I hope to feel soon too.”
Amy immediately received an outpouring of support.
From regular fans, and from celebrities.
Andy Cohen, Amber Rose, Octavia Spencer, Tan France (from Queer Eye), Reese Witherspoon, and Busy Phillips were among the fellow stars who wish her well.
And those are, of course, just the public messages.
(Our favorite has to be Andy offering to send Sonja Morgan to sing to her)
Some especially cynical folks might be tempted to theorize that Amy is exaggerating the situation to promote her movie.
While it’s true that she does give the film a boost in her captions, she’s doing that because she can’t actually be there at the premiere.
And, you know, she stars in the movie. Not everything is a conspiracy theory.
We don’t know what kind of kidney infection it is, only that it caused her to remain in the hospital for five days.
We wish Amy Schumer a full, speedy recovery.
