Burt Reynolds

I'm Leaving the ICU!

0126-burt-reynolds-tmzBurt Reynolds is on the road to recovery after battling a scary case of the flu this week -- which left him hospitalized in the ICU​ -- as he's officially being moved to the regular wing of the Florida hospital.

A rep for Burt tells TMZ the actor's fever broke this morning -- which is what the doctors had been waiting for -- and he will make the move out of the ICU today.

We're told his family and friends are extremely happy to see him recovering ... considering earlier in the week it was very "touch and go."

The condition of his mustache remains the same.

Your 'glib' bullsh*t over the mustache leaves much to be desired.... Glad he's better- the flu is not for sissies- old OR new!!!

I think Burt should star in the remake of "Weekend at Bernie's".

Burt Reynolds has been in character for the last 15 years!

Some think black people are the most racist people ever, do the most crime and think others owe them everything. The shoe fits.

MAKING MY FRIEND FATTER AND FATTER AND FATTER. My "frenemy" that is. She deserves it. I am sick of the way she treats me and now making her fat is going to be fun and easy.

The ICU puts the fluids in your veins with a saline solution drip. You can also just drink fruit juice diluted in spring water. This flu seems to over tax the kidneys so that people don't get enough fluids.


Good supportive care is what you need to beat the flu. Juice fasting, hot baths, bed rest, and staying warm all help. They say feed a cold, starve a fever.
