The multi-talented celebrity Kevin Smith is recuperating after suffering a “massive heart attack” on Sunday.
The writer, director, and actor informed supporters, followers and everyone on social media of his condition on early Monday morning. He posted a photo of himself recovering with an update on his condition. Smith wrote: “After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. The doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery ( aka “the widow-maker”). If I hadn’t canceled the show to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground!”

Smith was scheduled to tape a couple of stand-up shows at Glendale’s Alex Theater but bailed out on the second one after falling ill.
The versatile artist also gave a more detailed account of the medical emergency he faced on Facebook. He also expressed his relief and gratitude for his friends for their swift response and calling an ambulance.
In the post, Smith admitted that he tried to do a “killer standup special” that fateful evening but he might have gone too far. He said he felt nauseous but didn’t feel any better even after throwing up. He said he then started sweating buckets and his chest felt heavy. It turned out that he already had a massive heart attack then.
Smith said despite the difficult situation he went through, he learned something about himself during the crisis. He said his doctor told him he could have died that night, which could have been scary given that he has always been terrified of health risks. The actor, writer and director said he has always thought he’d be screaming when his “time comes.”
Instead, Smith shares that he was filled with a sense of calm. He said that’s partly because he’s had a great life, and loved by his parents who raise him to become the individual that he is.
Smith also showed appreciation for “his wonderful career in all sorts of media, amazing friends, the best wife and the incredible daughter that made him a dad. He said that as he stared into the infinite, he suddenly realized how content he was. He said he was able to do a lot of things and had so many adventures.
The writer-director also took the opportunity to thank Glendale hospital staff for taking care of him. He said total strangers saved his life, aside from two of his friends.
He said he might face some lifestyle changes in the near future as a result of what happened. He even hinted that he might go vegetarian.
Smith said what he wanted most to share to his friends and followers is that he faced his greatest fear that fateful night and it turned out to be not as bad as he had always imagined. He said his life was a “gift”, and should he go anytime, he’d be ready.
