“Hurt” for Real: Johnny Cash has Pneumonia

The amazing Johnny Cash – at a highpoint in his, what?, fifth career with American lV: The Man Comes Around – is suffering from pneumonia:

    Johnny Cash is being treated at a Nashville hospital for pneumonia, a hospital spokeswoman said.

    The 71-year-old singer, who was admitted Monday to Baptist Hospital, is in stable condition, said Melissa Cantrell.

    “He has a slight case of pneumonia and we expect to release him soon,” she said.

    Cash’s manager, Lou Robin, said the singer is expected to be released sometime early next week.

    Cash … suffers from autonomic neuropathy, a disease of the nervous system that makes him susceptible to pneumonia. Robin said Cash was diagnosed with the disease about 15 months ago. [AP]

Take it easy Johnny, we need you around.
