Amy Schumer recently went through a pretty tough time given her son Gene’s hospitalization, making it the “hardest week” of her life. She took to Instagram to narrate her ordeal while also updating fans on her latest project using several fun-looking snaps and a detailed message.
Amy Schumer’s Son Was Rushed To The ER And Admitted For RSV
The “Last Comic Standing” star posted seven images of herself alone in one and with co-workers in some others. They all appeared to be in a small room where scenes were being shot. The first slide was a video of the back view of the movie star and a woman discussing in front of a small screen by the room’s window.
And in the next picture, the women’s faces were captured with bright smiles. The third slide was a full shot of Schumer rocking a short black dress and matching platform heels. At the same time, she posed with two other men in the fourth snap; one wore a military uniform, while the other made a comical face for the camera.
Fans got to see the stand-up comedian looking radiant and happy in the midst of four other persons in the first slide, while the following one was a picture of multiple molded faces on a shelf.
Rounding off the pictures, she posted a view of what could be the makeup room on set, with different kinds of wigs positioned on a table. The Peabody Awards winner confessed in the caption:
“This was the hardest week of my life. I missed Thursday rehearsals when my son was rushed to the ER and admitted for RSV.”

While giving a shout-out to all parents who had gone through the same, she mentioned that she had to stay with the little one throughout the day. Even so, she appreciated the “beautiful humans” who supported her at the hospital. And thankfully, Gene is now at home and better.
Elaborating on her latest project – a show she regarded as “fun,” Schumer stated that the reason behind it being so lively had little to do with the performance or the production itself.
She believed “getting to spend time with the people there” made it all the more fun, including the cast, the writers, and her favorites: those working behind the scenes to make everything run smoothly.
The “Inside Amy Schumer” co-producer further listed the first names of the crew who are her favorites: “Donna, Jerry, Jodi, Genna, and Tom Wally, among others. And in conclusion, she penned:
“Lorne has assembled the most talented people with the kindest hearts. Thank you everyone there and to the doctor and nurses who helped us.”
Giving birth to her only child, Gene, in 2019 is no doubt one of the happiest achievements of Schumer’s life, but naturally, as a new mother, she wanted more kids. She went through invitro fertilization soon after the birth; however, things did not turn out so well.

In March, she opened up about the experience to Chelsea Handler while appearing on the iHeartRadio podcast “Dear Chelsea.” “I did IVF,” the “Trainwreck” actress shared. “We made embryos, and I went through the IVF process, which is so hard. People do it so many times. I did it one time, and I was like, I’m gonna die. This is awful.”
After getting about thirty-one eggs, she felt hot and like “Fertile Myrtle;” unfortunately, she ultimately got a single normal embryo that did not work after testing.

Two years after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Schumer got infected with the virus and joined the numerous celebs who spoke up about their experience. The Blast noted that the 41-year-old had to cancel her feature at the “Netflix is a Joke” program on a Saturday night despite performing at the event the day before.
Afterward, she took to social media to share the news of her infection in a typical Schumer fashion – with humor, to trivialize the seriousness of the condition. The Grammy nominee announced, “I am sad to say I have to cancel my show in L.A. tonight. I am the first woman to ever get COVID.”
She added, “I tested positive for COVID-19 about an hour ago, so yeah, please, I don’t know … but at least my hair looks good.” Schumer went into isolation almost immediately to recover from the infection, hoping to fully recover as soon as she could.
