Michael Moore is in the ICU after being diagnosed with pneumonia. He is recovering right now even though things didn’t really look good in the beginning.
The filmmaker revealed his struggles through Facebook. He has had to cancel a number of public appearances as a result.
“Between running all over the place lately promoting my new movie … plus going to Flint to help the people of my hometown, plus jumping in to support Senator Sanders, plus doing a dozen other things – well, I read somewhere you can’t burn it at both ends, and if u do, it’s best not to do so in the winter nor anywhere near a place full of toxic water!” he wrote.
“The truth is, I’ve actually been in the ICU since Sunday night. Let’s just say things didn’t look good Sunday night,” he wrote. “But thanks to a combination of good doctors, decent hospital food and 2nd-term Obamacare, I’m doing much better the last couple of days.”
He is going to rest at home and recover. He will be unavailable for a while now.
“So, would it be OK to enlist your help in a sort of quickly cobbled-together “army” of grassroots foot soldiers, wherein you could pitch in where you live (and onmedia) to let people know about my movie?” he wrote.
