Lets pray for him yall
After blogging the story of 50 checking into the hospital earlier, I just received an email from a hospital employee claiming to have "the inside track".
According to her story, which 50 has now confirmed as "pretty accurate", the following events occurred.
"50 Cent said he had traveled to London on business over the weekend for a soccer event. While there he had a meal shortly before heading to the airport. On the way to the airport he fell ill and couldn't keep his food down. However, needing to be back in NYC to complete some tape he continued to his flt. On the plane he ate a meal without incident. After landing at JFK he headed straight to his office, stopping along the way to grab a bite which after eating made him ill again. After being unable to hold his food down he decided to spend the night in the city versus heading to his mansion in CT (the one that was once owned by Mike Tyson she goes on to say)
She goes on to say "the following morning 50 went to see his doctor where his temperature and blood pressure were checked, both of which were normal." still according to her "He left the doctor's office and went straight to his office to do an interview DJ Drama and DJ Enuff for his mixtape" (she's referring to the Gangsta Grillz one - dropping this Tuesday).
"At that point 50 fell ill once again. He felt light headed, started sweating and having abdominal cramps due to dehydration I guess and not having any food left in his stomach. His staff was growing increasingly concerned (he has NEVER been sick) as he left the office. On his way home he knew something was wrong and immediately went to the hospital where we gave him morphine for the pain. He was given a dye to drink and went through a cat scan which revealed he had a blockage in his small intestine."
"At that point 50 was given the option of having a tube placed down his nose into his stomach to relieve the blockage or have surgery. After four unsuccessful attempts to remove the blockage with the tube doctors decided that method was not going to work. As of now he is being observed to see if anything changes, if not he will have to undergo surgery."
Please say a prayer for 50 and wish him a speedy recovery.

Info on Disease:
Intestinal pseudo-obstruction can occur in people of any age, but it occurs more often in children and older adults. Children can have a long-lasting form of the condition called chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP). CIP in children is usually present at birth.
In another form of intestinal pseudo-obstruction that mostly affects older adults, the colon becomes enlarged after surgery or illness. This condition is known as acute colonic pseudo-obstruction (ACPO), also called Ogilvie syndrome or acute colonic ileus. ACPO can lead to serious complications and can be life-threatening.
What causes intestinal pseudo-obstruction?
Normally, nerves and muscles work together to produce wavelike contractions that push food through the intestines. In intestinal pseudo-obstruction, nerve or muscle problems prevent normal contractions. As a result, people with the condition have problems with the movement of food, fluid, and air through the intestines.
When the cause of the nerve or muscle problems leading to intestinal pseudo-obstruction is not known, the condition is called primary or idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction. If the cause is known, the condition is called secondary intestinal pseudo-obstruction. Causes of secondary intestinal pseudo-obstruction include
abdominal or pelvic surgery
diseases that affect muscles and nerves, such as lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, and Parkinson's disease
medications such as opiates and antidepressants that affect muscles and nerves
What are the symptoms of intestinal pseudo-obstruction?
Intestinal pseudo-obstruction symptoms may include cramps, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating, and constipation. Occasionally, intestinal pseudo-obstruction may cause diarrhea. Over time, the condition can cause bacterial infections, malnutrition, weight loss, and muscle problems in other parts of the body. Some people develop problems with their esophagus, stomach, or bladder.
How is intestinal pseudo-obstruction diagnosed?
To diagnose intestinal pseudo-obstruction, the doctor will take a complete medical history, do a physical exam, and take x rays. The doctor will make sure that symptoms are not due to an intestinal blockage and will look for the cause of the condition, such as an underlying illness. Other testing may be needed, such as manometry to measure the patterns of intestinal contractions.
How is intestinal pseudo-obstruction treated?
People with intestinal pseudo-obstruction often need nutritional support to prevent malnutrition and weight loss. Enteral nutrition provides liquid food through a feeding tube inserted through the nose into the stomach or placed directly into the stomach or small intestine. Some people need intravenous feeding, also called parenteral nutrition, which provides liquid food through a tube placed in a vein.
If intestinal pseudo-obstruction is caused by an illness or medication, the doctor will treat the underlying illness or stop the medication.
Treatment may include medications, such as antibiotics to treat bacterial infections, pain medication, and medication to treat intestinal muscle problems. People with ACPO may need procedures to remove gas from the bowel. In severe cases of intestinal pseudo-obstruction, surgery to remove part of the intestine or other intestinal surgery might be necessary.
Points to Remember
Intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a condition with symptoms like those caused by a bowel obstruction, or blockage. But when the intestines are examined, no blockage is found.
Intestinal pseudo-obstruction is caused by nerve or muscle problems that prevent the intestines from contracting normally to move food, fluid, and air through the intestines.
Symptoms may include cramps, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating, constipation, and occasionally diarrhea.
Treatment depends on the type and severity of intestinal pseudo-obstruction and may involve nutritional support, medications, surgery, or other procedures.
