Christian Comedian Rickey Smiley Discharged from the Hospital After Mysterious Medical Issue, Says ‘Jesus is My Doctor’

After a three-day stint in the hospital, Christian comedian Rickey Smiley revealed Thursday morning that he has been discharged and is at home resting.


Sporting a bandage on his right hand in a Facebook Live broadcast from his home, the nationally syndicated radio host who said he was medicated with morphine, thanked his fans for their prayers.

“I’ve been discharged from the hospital. I’m at home. I just ate a big bowl of soup and I’m good. Thank you everybody for their prayers,” Smiley said.

He explained that he was getting ready to get some rest but also took time to thank staff at the undisclosed hospital where he was treated and promised to send them a gift from Edible Arrangements.

“I’m happy, I’m safe. I feel better. I hope you all having a blessed day,” he said.

Dressed in a hospital gown, Smiley wrote in a post on Instagram Wednesday that he had been hospitalized since Monday and declared that December had been a difficult month for him.

“I’ve been in the hospital since Monday, and December has been a rough, rough, rough month. Thank you for your well wishes. #JesusIsMyDoctor,” Smiley said.

In the post that included a video clip of him breathing through a tube while declaring himself a survivor, Smiley said he didn’t know what his medical problem was.

“Bruh, I’ve been in the hospital since Monday, I don’t know what the hell is going on but everybody has been nice,” he said.
