RedState founding member Erick Erickson is recovering from a serious health crisis and hospital trip. Sadly this appears not to be a cruel joke or hoax.
Radio host and pundit Erick Erickson on Sunday revealed a serious diagnosis – his “lungs have been filling with blood clots,” and his doctors have told him he “should be dead.”
Mitt Romney, and notably, Ted Cruz chimed in, the latter Tweeting his support for the ailing media figure who recently was in the hospital:
Ted Cruz Retweeted Erick Erickson
“I hope you’ll join Heidi and me in keeping
@EWErickson in your thoughts and prayers throughout his recovery.”
Erick posted this online letting the public in on the situation. He posted a not for the feint of heart photo of his arm linked to here:
Noted in the above link:
“Ecclesiastes says there is a time to heal and a time to be silent. My time for both has come,” he said in an open letter posted online Sunday. He’ll be off the air for a time while he recovers.
We all wish he fully gets well, yet it’s worth noting that he also recently had to fend off death threats using bodyguards for hire due to receiving them from certain deranged fans of a certain presidential candidate that will not be mentioned, but I digress.
That would also be the same unmentioned one who, unlike Cruz and the others, even, reflected on the annual pro-life “March for Life” on Washington on their campaign sites while he/she did not, but again I digress.
Thanks for all you have done and continue to do in service of conservative thought, Mr. Erickson, and get well soon!
