Jimmy Fallon Returns with Harrowing Story: “I Was in the ICU for Ten Days” (Video)


Jimmy Fallon is back. His story of what happened to him — Ring Avulsion– is pretty harrowing. He tripped on a rug at home, fell and almost lost his finger. He spent 10 days in the ICU, Jimmy told his audience last night.

For New Yorkers, the funnier part of the story might be that Jimmy wound up going to Bellevue. (This is usually where you go when you’ve lost your mind.) But sounds like Jimmy’s doctors at Bellevue were heroes. Bellevue is really known for excellence in trauma surgery. They came through with flying colors.

Meantime, even worse maybe, Steve Higgins got Lyme disease. The Tonight Show time off was no picnic, that’s for sure.
