Drudge has this, and it sounds like it wasn’t as serious, and he’ll be held overnight. Maybe just has to be stabilized or fluids inserted or removed.

Scientist Stephen Hawking ‘very ill’
Hawkings always gave us information, so just keeping up the tradition of full disclosure. lol.
Stephen Hawking, professor of mathematics and physics from
Cambridge University arrives for a news conference to promote
his book "The Universe in a nutshell" in Munich October 16, 2001.
The university said Hawking has been fighting a chest infection for several weeks, and was being treated at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, the university city north of London.
“Professor Hawking is very ill,” said Gregory Hayman, the university’s head of communications. “He is undergoing tests. He has been unwell for a couple of weeks.”
OMG that’s hilarious.
I’m surprised that no suggestion has been made for “Prayers Up”.
Permit me to suggest that Professor Hawking is deserving of that.
Abused by his wife?
Sooner or later, we all get our answers to the “God question.”
I will. :-)
Some of use said a short prayer on seeing the news. I understand Mr. Hawking isn’t a believer, so he needs prayers even more.
I prayed for Katherine Hepburn for years. I figured God was keeping her alive for a reason.
I was going to make a snarky comment, then I saw yours.
You inspired me. Prayers for Mr. Hawking’s recovery and blessing from me, too.
Yep; we do. It's absolutely inevitable, unavoidable. :^)
I'm lifting prayers for Stephen Hawking....
Thanks so much for the ping, xzins!
Quick, clone his brain.
" Homer, Your theory of a doughnut-shaped universe is intriguing... I may have to steal it." ...
I pray Mr. Hawking finds salvation before he meets his maker.
