Yesterday I wrote a post about Robin Williams postponing some Florida show dates while he rested up on doctor's orders. As it turns out, it was a little more serious than just shortness of breath.
Robin's offical website is now saying that the Mrs. Doubtfire actor will undergo surgery for an aortic valve replacement. Aortic valve replacement requires open heart surgery and usually a 4-10 day hospital stay with a couple of months of recovery time. His tour is said to resume in the fall when he's up and about again.
Robin has said “I’m so touched by everyone’s support and well wishes. This tour has been amazing fun and I can’t wait to get back out on the road after a little tune-up.”
Wishing him all the best and a speedy recovery. He really does put on a great show.
