HONOLULU -- Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said he's fine and leaving the hospital with plans to return to work on Wednesday. The combative conservative said tests show nothing wrong after he was hospitalized with chest pains.
He remained at a hospital in Hawaii Thursday night, a day after being admitted for chest pains.
According to his radio program, Limbaugh underwent a complete examination on Thursday that gave doctors more information about his condition.
Walter E. Williams, who filled in for Limbaugh on his radio show, offered a brief update on the host's condition.
"Rush continues to rest very comfortably in the hospital in Honolulu this afternoon," Williams said.
Limbaugh was in Hawaii for a Christmas vacation. He was spotted golfing earlier in the week at the Waialae Country Club.
On Wednesday, he was taken from the Kahala Hotel and Resort to Queens Medical Center after complaining of chest pains.
"Those pains were the kind of pains that makes one feel like he has a heart attack coming on, but it's not been confirmed that it was a heart attack," Williams said. "Rush is in good and stable condition. (He's) comfortable, as comfortable as one can be in a hospital while on vacation and he's in good hands."
On Friday, Limbaugh held a conference to brief reporters at the Cardiac Comprehensive Care Unit of the hospital.
"I experienced pain in my upper left chest like I had never felt before," Limbaugh said. (Video: Watch the entire interview.)
He said the pain was real but he still doesn't know what caused it.
Limbaugh said an angiogram found nothing wrong and that he's never had heart problems.
"Best guess," Limbaugh said, "it might have been a spasm in an artery."
"The treatment I received here was first rate," he said, thanking the doctors, nurses and nurses aides at Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu.
Limbaugh checked out of the hospital after his news conference. He said he would return to work on Wednesday, a two-day delay because of his hospitalization.Rest Of Story Here
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Well Thank You American Medical System!!!! Do NOT let Obama get us involved in some weird, twisted, UK/Canadian, Health Care System! Our system works just fine, but if Congress is allowed to gain control, we are screwed! We will NEVER be seen IMMEDIATELY again! We will have to wait weeks. I know first hand about the health care billing system. If you owe, you only have to pay 10.00 a month and they have to accept it. The Health Care Company may want more, but the truth is if ten dollars a month is paid, (It may take longer to pay off but) it will get paid off. And you or a family member will be seen immediately, unlike ObamaCare, where if you have ever been to Harbor General Hospital in Los Angeles, California you know what I'm talking about, it will take weeks.
Affordable Health Care YES!!
Thank God For The Current American Medical Care System.
