Ed Bryant Hospitalized

Writer Ed Bryant was checked into a Colorado hospital on August 27, 2011 (his 66th birthday) with gastroparesis, a complication of diabetes that affects the throat, the stomach, and the digestive process. He was transferred out of intensive care on September 4, and according to Melanie Tem, “his heart and kidneys appear to be OK.” His feeding tube has been removed, and he is once again eating by mouth.
