“I am home and doing better. I was dehydrated and had low blood sugar,” he wrote. “I appreciate the great doctors and nurses that took such good care of me. Thank you to everyone who reached out but I am doing ok!”
TMZ reported that Mandel was at a department of the espresso chain within the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles along with his spouse Terry and different associates when he fainted and fell over.
Paramedics had been known as to the scene and Mandel was taken to an area hospital. A photograph obtained by the outlet seems to indicate Mandel sitting up, surrounded by a bunch of L.A. firefighters.
Earlier this week, the St. Elsewhere alum posted on social media from a hospital mattress, sharing in a video that he had undergone an endoscopy and a colonoscopy.
“Colonoscopy,” he captioned the clip on Instagram. “Recovery audition.”
Within the video, Mandel confirmed off his post-procedure outfit and interacted with a neighboring affected person who acknowledged his voice and “tried to audition [for America’s Got Talent] as he was waking up.”
“I just came out of my colonoscopy — the doctors here were nice enough to let me wear a one piece … with just a flap in the back,” Mandel joked.
In June, Mandel opened as much as PEOPLE about his struggles with anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder, and how he makes use of comedy to get via the hardest moments.
“My coping skill is finding the funny,” he stated. “If I’m not laughing, then I’m crying. And I still haven’t been that open about how dark and ugly it really gets.”
“Comedy saved me in a way,” Mandel continued. “I’m most comfortable onstage. And when I don’t have anything to do, I turn inward — and that’s not good.”
