I told you Larry King was battling COVID in the hospital back on New Year’s Day. He’d already been in Cedars Sinai starting around December 20th.
I’ve been deluged with requests for an update. So here it is. I’m told Larry is still in the hospital. He’s not in ICU, because he’s not in imminent danger. He was transferred to a VIP area a week ago or more. I’m told he’s improving, but he’s still fairly ill.
King is 87, and has survived strokes, a heart attack, and many other maladies. “COVID has really run through him,” I’m told, but “he’s strong.”
Larry’s condition is being monitored on a minute basis by his (still) wife Shawn Southwick, sons Cannon and Chance, and Larry Jr. But he can’t have visitors, which can’t be easy. Speaking from experience, this is the toughest part. But Facetime calls certainly help. I hope they show him this picture of Larry and family.
Sending the most positive thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery.
Larry has so many great interviews, here’s a recent one that’s especially good.
