Shortly after her new movie, “I Feel Pretty,” was released to theaters on Friday (April 20), Amy Schumer revealed to fans that she is in the hospital suffering from a bad kidney infection.

The comedienne took to Instagram to share her story, along with some hospital photos during her stay.

“Here’s what I’ve been up to this week,” she began her post. “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.”

In true Schumer form, the actress added a plug for her movie as well as a dose of levity to lighten the mood.

“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.”

Looks like Amy is in good hands, with new husband Chris Fischer by her side, holding her hand through the ordeal. Schumer also had her sister Kim and assistant Molly by her side.

No details yet on when Schumer will be released, but we wish her a speedy recovery.
