Amy Schumer is recovering from a gnarly kidney infection that landed the star in the hospital for five days and it has forced her to miss the London premiere of her new film.

The comedian posted photos on Instagram from her hospital bed that shows a sad, pink-faced Schumer hooked up to an IV.

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week. I was hospitalized for 5 days with a horrible kidney infection. I want to give a big thank you to the doctors, the bad ass nurses also my husband who’s name is, i want to say, Chris? and my sisters Kimby and mol who have been by my side the whole time. I wanted to share this with you because this is sexy as hell but mostly because I was meant to go to London for the opening of I Feel Pretty and my doctors have told me that’s a no go. I’m really disappointed selfishly to miss this trip because I love London and Europe in general and all the great people (food) there. But I need to put my health first. I am so grateful for all the support the movie is getting. I hope people check it out in England and everywhere else in the world. It’s sweet and fun and you will walk out feeling better. Which is something I hope to feel soon too.

Naturally, because she’s Amy Schumer, she still managed to be funny in the caption, pretending not to remember her husband’s name.

“I want to give a big thank you to the doctors, the bad ass nurses also my husband who’s name is, i want to say, Chris? and my sisters Kimby and mol who have been by my side the whole time,” Schumer wrote.

Schumer joked that she was sharing this with fans because it’s “sexy as hell” and also to let everyone know that the doctors put the kibosh on her plans to attend the London premiere of “I Feel Pretty.”

“I’m really disappointed selfishly to miss this trip because I love London and Europe in general and all the great people (food) there,” she wrote.

Amy said she’s grateful for all the support the film is getting and hopes people in the UK will go see it because “it’s sweet and fun and you will walk out feeling better. Which is something I hope to feel soon too.”

We do too! Feel better, Amy!
