Lindsay Lohan was rushed to the emergency room in NYC last night … and sources connected to the actress tell us she’s suffering from a bad lung infection.
Lindsay has been telling friends she’s been dealing with a bad case of “walking pneumonia” for the last couple weeks — and last night, we’re told things got so bad she had to go to the hospital.
We’re told Lindsay was taken to Mt. Sinai, where she received medication for the infection — including antibiotics — and was discharged shortly after.
Lindsay’s currently resting back in her hotel room.
So, bummer. Maybe there was something to that whole “walking pneumonia” excuse that she gave in order to bail out on the Charlie Sheen-kissing scene in Scary Movie 5. But we’re not going to go ahead and confirm that, guys, because it’s Lindsay Lohan we’re talking about, and there’s always parallel meanings behind what she does and what the reasoning behind them happens to be.
Moreover, why is Lindsay always RUSHED! to the hospital? I mean, I don’t pretend to be a doctor or anything, but it’s a lung infection. Unless it was seriously inhibiting her breathing, I can’t imagine a reason to rush anywhere. If it were me, I’d be like, ‘Bummer, I’m pretty sick. I guess I’m going to get in my car and drive my ass to the ER, since I can’t get a doctor’s appointment like a normal person might and see what they can do for me’. That’s how I’d do it, because I don’t really see making a mountain out of a molehill. Or a hotel room at the Chateau Marmont into a crack den, to put it in terms that Lindsay Lohan can understand.
