At the very least, he didn't waste any time getting back on his computer; Ebert's already tweeted one update about his health and a link to a new review (for the horror film "Citadel," if you're curious), which is definitely a good sign. Here was Chaz Ebert's first tweet:
Roger in hospital with hip fracture (tricky disco dance moves) but he is doing well, asking for computer, will probably tweet.— Chaz (@ChazEbert) December 6, 2012
The woman knows her husband; sure enough about five hours later, Ebert let his followers know how he was doing.
Yes, fracture. But no surgery needed. Details follow. :)— Roger Ebert (@ebertchicago) December 6, 2012
Best wishes to Roger on a speedy, disco-filled recovery.
