Roger Ebert has been hospitalized with a hip fracture, but the famed Chicago movie critic's wife says he's doing OK and joked on Twitter that the fracture was caused by "tricky disco dance moves."
His wife, Chaz Ebert, said on Thursday that her husband was doing much better and "doctors are making assessments" about when he could leave the hospital, reports the AP.
She took to Twitter to spread the word that her Pulitzer Prize-winning husband was doing well and "asking for computer, will probably tweet." Roger Ebert, who loves to tweet and does so often, last posted Tuesday afternoon.
Ebert, 70, has had health problems over the past several years, including a battle with cancer in his thyroid and salivary glands that caused him to lose his ability to speak and eat .
