Los Angeles (CNN) -- Actor Charlie Sheen was in "stable" condition after being taken by ambulance from his home to a Los Angeles hospital for severe pain, related to a hernia Thursday morning, his representative said.
"Charlie has had a hernia condition for some time," representative Stan Rosenfield said. "I was told by the person who made the 911 call that it was hernia-related."
Reporters and paparazzi converged on Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after reports hit the internet that Sheen was at the emergency room there Thursday morning. The hospital refused to give any information about the actor, giving rising to rampant media speculation about Sheen's condition.
Tensions eased later in the day when Rosenfield announced that his client was in stable condition and was being treated for the hernia.
If your hernia becomes incarcerated, the lack of blood supply can kill parts of your intestines. Then you have a surgical emergency instead of a comfortable planned day.
Skied a little faster today, but still no black runs, trees, bumps or speed. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....
