Roger Ebert, famed critic, has broken his hip and is hospitalized…and tweeting all about it.
“Roger in hospital with hip fracture (tricky disco dance moves) but he is doing well, asking for computer, will probably tweet,” she wrote.

“Yes, fracture,” the critic confirmed Thursdsay via Twitter. “But no surgery needed. Details follow. :)” he delightfully concludes.
Ebert’s wife has since spoken to The Associated Press where he revealed that her husband is doing okay and that “doctors are making assessments" as to when he can be released from the hospital.
This is not the first troubles Ebert has seen in his health. According to the AP, Ebert has long battled cancer in his thyroid and salivary glands. He has lost his ability to speak and currently uses a device to aid him in communicating.
