Tyler Labine: The New Amsterdam star in hospital with a clot
Labine reveals that he woke up with a bad stomach ache and ended up in the emergency room. “Sometimes your stomach ache turns out to be a potentially fatal blood clot in your intestines and liver and you have to spend the next 3 days in the hospital trying not to die,” the actor writes. He adds that he is fine, that recovery will be slow but that he is “with my family, who are supporting me, and my lovely girlfriend Martha, who is taking care of me. I am reflecting on how lucky I am and probably reevaluating that which is really important to me in this life.”
Labine concludes his message by thanking fans for their love and support. Also many colleagues and friends – not only from New Amsterdam – they made themselves heard with words of encouragement. Ryan Eggold sent him emojis of hands forming a heart, calling him “Brother”. Rick Gonzalezwith whom he shared the set of Reaper, wrote: “Bro, I send you love and positive energies. May you be blessed.” “Praying for you brother,” she wrote Zachary Levi. Janet Montgomeryon the other hand, joked with him by focusing on the chosen hashtags and wishing him well.
