Larry King is recovering in the hospital after receiving a scheduled heart procedure, but he's shooting down reports he went into cardiac arrest.
Ora TV, who produces King's "Larry King Now," tells The Blast, "On the morning of Thursday, April 25, Larry King was scheduled for an angioplasty. Before his scheduled procedure, he experienced angina and went to the hospital early to be examined. His doctor successfully performed the angioplasty and inserted stents to reopen the previous bypass from 1987."
We're told the 85-year-old is recuperating in the hospital and scheduled to be released later today, his doctors expect him to make a "full recovery."
King also wanted to be very clear, "contrary to published reports, his doctors say he did not have a heart attack and he did not go into cardiac arrest."
We're told, "Larry is in good spirits and thanks everyone for their concern. He’s expected to be back to work on his shows, “Larry King Now” and “PoliticKING with Larry King” soon."
Larry, and the King family, want to correct any erroneous information about a heart attack ASAP.
That's just his 2 cents...
