Roger Ebert has not had good luck with his health. (Although he's long outlived poor Gene Siskel!)

The 70-year-old film critic has battled cancer and lost his ability to speak after several surgeries. Earlier today, his wife, Chaz, tweeted about a new medical issue: “Roger in hospital with hip fracture (tricky disco dance moves) but he is doing well, asking for computer, will probably tweet.”

If she’s joking about it, it couldn’t be that bad! Sure enough, Roger did tweet, writing, "Yes, fracture. But no surgery needed. Details follow. :)" But his next tweet was, true to form, a link to a movie review.

Let's hope his real update is just as light-hearted. Get well soon, Roger!
