Filed under: HealthSickInstagram

This is such good news!

Tamar Braxton is SO done with being in the hospital.

The 38-year-old was initially rushed to the ER last Monday, only hours before she was supposed to perform on Dancing With The Stars.

And even though she was able to make it to the studio to dance — and dodge disqualification — the singer immediately returned to the hospital after taping wrapped.

The DWTS competitor announced she had been misdiagnosed and was actually suffering from blood clots in her lungs, not pneumonia. She dropped out of the popular program to focus on her health.

Well now, it seems as though the beauty is on the road to recovery!

On Tuesday, the artist shared on Instagram that she finally left the hospital, and she could not be MORE excited! The musician burst into song as she was pushed out of the facility in a wheelchair.

She captioned the heartwarming video:

"Look at GOD!! 🙌🏽🙌🏾🌞 #so blessed thank you all for your prayers😘 i [love] you all so much❣"

Ch-ch-check it out (below)!

Heavy D Died From A Blood Clot In His Lung

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadHealth

Heavy D Death

The mysterious death of rapper and actor Heavy D has been solved.

An El Lay coroner determined the Now That We Found Love singer died of not only a pulmonary embolism caused by a blood clot in his lung, but several other conditions including deep leg vein thrombosis and arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

While those conditions, which are associated with obesity, are entirely preventable, they often go undiagnosed until it's too late.

The 44-year-old unexpectedly passed away on November 8th after he collapsed at his Beverly Hills home.

Rest in peace, D!

20-Year-Old Dies After Marathon Session Of Xbox

Filed under: Sad SadHealth

Here is a sad reminder for video game lovers to make sure they get up and move!

20-year-old Chris Staniforth passed away from a pulmonary embolism, which kills victims sitting in the same position for hours, after a marathon session on his Xbox.

Chris had no underlying medical conditions, but was reportedly complaining of a low heart rate before he collapsed.

Ugh! Such a horrific side effect of a video game addiction! At least his parents have launched a campaign to raise awareness about the health risks of playing online computer games.

Microsoft, the company behind Xbox, says they "recommend gamers take breaks to exercise as well as make time for other pursuits", but parents need to step in if their children are ignoring this recommendation.

Our hearts go out to the Staniforth family for their loss and we hope their campaign helps other video game lovers avoid the same fate as their son.
