Following his heart attack, Kevin Smith has left the hospital after receiving treatment from doctors for three days. In a Twitter post which we have for you below, the 47-year-old comedian updated his fans on his condition and his return back home.
Smith said he was “home again,” and “home is where the heart is,” and it’s “feeling good!” The director, who has frequently used his own weight as the butt of jokes in the past, claimed he is now on Day 2 of being a vegetarian.
According to the Mayo Clinic, when done correctly, a vegetarian diet can be healthy for the heart as long as one eats the appropriate amount of fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats which come from nuts and seeds like almonds.
During a stand-up special in Los Angeles, Kevin collapsed and had to be taken to the hospital because of shortness of breath as well as nausea.
Home again, home again, jiggety-jig! Home is where the heart is and the heart is feeling good! It’s actually getting more blood flow and oxygen than it has in a long time. So I am ALERT, to say the least! Thank you for all the kind words, folks – from Vegetarian Kev, Day 2! pic.twitter.com/zLbwzx7Exq

Upon his arrival, doctors told him his LAD artery had been blocked altogether. Following his recovery, Smith claimed he has been calm and accepting of the circumstances.
Now, he has come to realize the importance of getting himself into shape and eating healthy foods. At the beginning of the day today, Kevin, who is a father, a husband, a comedian, a writer, and a director, took to a Facebook video to update the world on what had happened to him.
Smith said it was a “eulogy” of sorts and he saw what life will be like from now on. “It was very, very, sweet.” The past six months have been eventful for the Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back creator.
The last time we heard from Kevin was when the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke loose, and the Clerks director stated in public he would donate to Women In Film due to his longstanding professional relationship with the former producer.
