Leonard Nimoy was reportedly hospitalized late last week, after a 911 call was placed on his behalf.
The 83-year old actor was taken to UCLA Medical Center on Thursday after complaining about “severe chest pains,” law enforcement sources told TMZ.
Last year, Nimoy revealed that he had been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), tweeting “I quit smoking 30 yrs ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!”
Nimoy appears to have stabilized, taking to Twitter in recent days.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP
