Patrick Swayze Released From Hospital

Patrick Swayze’s rep has confirmed that the actor has been released from the hospital after being treated for pneumonia, People magazine reports.

The 56-year-old actor, who revealed that he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last March, checked into the hospital on January 9.

“I am happy to announce that Patrick Swayze is home after a brief hospitalization for pneumonia,” Swayze’s rep, Annett Wolf, announced yesterday.

Swayze, who currently stars on the A&E series The Beast, is resting at home with his wife Lisa, 52. The actor has displayed exemplary strength and courage while battling cancer, though he recently admitted in a 20/20 interview with Barbara Walters, “You can bet I’m going through hell. And I’ve only seen the beginning of it.”
