Patrick Swayze Checks Out of Hospital

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Patrick Swayze has been released from the hospital, one week after he checked himself in with pneumonia, according to his publicist.

Swayze left the hospital on Friday. In a statement, Swayze's publicist would not speak about his condition, but said he "is well enough to have been released," and is now resting at his home in Los Angeles.

Swayze has been fighting pancreatic cancer -- one of the most deadly and fastest growing types of cancer -- for over a year. Just two days before checking into the hospital, Swayze's interview with Barbara Walter's aired, where he described his fight and fears over dying.

This week, "The Beast" premiered on A&E -- which he taped while undergoing cancer treatment. The network was hopeful Swayze could return for the second season of the show.

Patrick, I feel so bad for you. I took care of my mother when she had pancreatic cancer so I know the pain that goes with the disease. Make sure you know the Lord Jesus Christ so dying won’t be the end but the begining. Is there anything I could do to make your way easier? My e-mail address is: Best Wishes, Barb

I have been completely touched by Patrick Swayze’s story. After the Barbara Walter’s interview, i could not get him and his wife out of my thoughts. I feel that he is not only showing a strength of life but courage that is larger than we can imagine. I also feel he is reminding all of us…that tomorrow is not guaranteed. So i have to agree with Barb..I pray that Patrick has dedicated his life to Christ…and has a relationship with Him so that he can gain added strength, comfort and more through this terrible situation. We are pulling for you Patrick!!

Hey there, fantastic report, a colleague in the fashion sector linked me to your web page. I’ve been born into the marketplace with my parents earning a living from the fashion trade. I’ve realized the business is fairly disjointed so I’m presently earning a living with a web site to provide everybody collectively. Thanks for the helpful data.
