Richard Simmons isn’t missing anymore…but don’t call off the podcast yet.  We let you know the 68 year old fitness guru was poised to make a comeback soon, but it seems he had some discomfort and had to check in to an undisclosed hospital for “severe indigestion.”

His manager, Michael Catalano, says that Richard is “already feeling better and is expected to make a full recovery.”

It seems even Richard himself made a post on Facebook earlier today.  It reads in part:

“Hello to everyone who has shown concern for me and sent their good wishes. You will never know how much it means to me.   Aren’t you sick of hearing and reading about me?! LOL Well by now you know that I’m not “missing”, just a little under the weather. I’m sure I will be feeling good and back home in a couple of days.  This has reminded me that when you need help you can’t be afraid to reach out and ask for it. We all think we should always be able to solve our problems all by ourselves and sometimes it’s just bigger than we are.”

We’re so glad you are feeling better, Richard.  Hopefully we’ll get to see you soon!
