Ed McMahon in ICU -- Pneumonia, Cancer

2/27/2009 9:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

ed mcmahon: exclusiveUPDATE: We've just learned Ed is in the ICU and his condition is "extremely serious." As one person close to him put it -- "It's not great, to say the least."

We're told Ed McMahon has been hospitalized for nearly a month with pneumonia, bone cancer and other medical problems.

McMahon's condition is "serious" which is pretty obvious given his age -- 85 -- and the fact he has pneumonia.

We contacted Ed's rep, Howard Bragman, who confirmed the hospitalization and added, "He's not at Cedars-Sinai" -- a dig on the hospital Ed is suing for alleged malpractice and elder abuse.

He's been in the hospital for a month. His people are giving the public a heads-up that he's near death.

To to the dope that wrote welfare would pick up his tab like the mom who had that huge litter, Ed belongs to the Screen Actors Guild which covers him.
Don't be so negative...

Ed is and has always been a great man and person. I am shocked at some of the comments posted on this site such as how he probably has no health ins. and comparing him to the mother who just had all the babies and how our tax dollars will have to pay his way . if that was the situation and I don't believe that it is I would be happy knowing that my tax dollars were going to help a person such as Ed who has done so much for so many in his lifetime. and one more thing to the person who called his wife a goldigger she has been with him for a long time and has made him extremely happy how dare you have the nerve to say such a thing do you know her or him . all I can say is Godbless you Ed and I hope the best for you and your wife. Please get well soon Joe H.
