    GET WELL Robin Williams!

    Publicist: Robin Williams needs heart surgery

    4 hours ago

    MIAMI (AP) — Robin Williams' publicist says the comedian needs heart surgery and must cancel the remainder of his one-man show, "Weapons of Self-Destruction."

    Diane Rosen said in a news release Thursday that Williams needs an aortic valve replacement.
    The 57-year-old Williams says he is "touched by everyone's support and well wishes."

    The comedian and actor had canceled four shows in Florida this week after experiencing shortness of breath.

    The 80-city tour is expected to resume in the fall.

    I heard about this yesterday. Hope the surgery goes well. He's one of my all-time faves. He was supposed to come here this month on tour. Good thing I couldn't afford the tickets!

    The following was posted under Yahoo! News this morning.


    Williams recovering in Ohio after heart surgery


    NEW YORK Robin Williams was recovering at the Cleveland Clinic after heart surgery that his doctors deemed successful, his publicists said Monday.

    The 57-year-old actor had an operation to replace an aortic valve on March 13, publicists Mara Buxbaum and Chris Kanarick said. He was expected to make a complete recovery in the next eight weeks.

    "His heart is strong and he will have normal heart function in the coming weeks with no limitations on what he'll be able to do," said Dr. A. Marc Gillinov, a cardiothoracic surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic. "A couple of hours after surgery, he was entertaining the medical team and making us all laugh."

    Williams was initially treated at the University of Miami Hospital before being transferred to Cleveland. He had been in Florida earlier this month when he was forced to cancel the remainder of his one-man comedy show, "Weapons of Self-Destruction," after experiencing shortness of breath.

    Williams, whose sold-out, multi-city tour is expected to resume in the fall, thanked staff at both hospitals.

    "I can't thank them enough for their kindness and dedication while I was in their care," he said in a statement. "I must also thank all the people who have expressed their love and concern for me. I have been deeply touched by their support."

    Williams being Williams, he couldn't resist a comic aside.

    "I got some great new material for the tour and can't wait to get back on the road," he said. "I'm thinking the next leg of the tour will be `Weapons of Self-Destruction and Reconstruction'!"
