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.

pneumonia and 85 doesn't mean death bed. I have a 93 year old lady friend of the family who had a bad case and was put in a home and on oxygen 24/7 and this year she's back in her own home with no need of any oxygen supplementation. So hand in there Ed and don't forget to pray!

God bless Ed McMahon. He gave me a lot of laughs back in the years of the old Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. May he finally have peace from all that's befallen him.

Sad to say but looks like the end is near for him. He can join Johnny Carson, and he can introduce him to the audience up stars

My sincere prayers go up for Ed. I pray he does not suffer. I pray Jesus will comfort him.
Why do people have to try to be humorous even in sad situations such as these. It is very distasteful.
