LeAnn Rimes recovering after brief hospitalization

By Phyllis Stark. CREATED Mar 1, 2014

LeAnn Rimes is recovering after a brief hospitalization for what she described as being either “food poisoning or a virus.”

LeAnn being LeAnn, she tweeted the entire episode on Thursday (Feb. 27), including a photo of her arm hooked up to a intravenous drip resting on a tray table filled with crackers and apple juice boxes.
 
She started the day tweeting about a “stomach ache from hell,” before later tweeting the hospital pic, in which she told fans “#mybabyistakingcareofme,” a reference to husband Eddie Cibrian, and assured, “I feel so much better now.”
 
By Saturday (March 1), she was clearly feeling better, tweeting “Fun new job, can't share just yet, but YAY!”
 
As the San Francisco Chronicle notes, Thursday’s hospitalization was “the latest bout of ill health to affect Rimes – she was hospitalized in Ireland last year after she was struck down with a viral infection and also fractured her hand during a vigorous workout.”
