SHORT TAKES : Actor Phillips Out of Hospital

September 05, 1990| From Times Wire Services

Lou Diamond Phillips of "La Bamba" and "Young Guns II" was hospitalized over the weekend because of bleeding from a tonsillectomy, his spokesman says.

The 28-year-old actor was taken by paramedics to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Thursday after losing blood while eating at a restaurant, Eddie Michaels said Tuesday.

"He had a tonsillectomy about two weeks ago, and this was what they call residual bleeding," Michaels said. "He actually lost a lot of blood. But he got a transfusion and is doing fine right now."

Phillips was released from the hospital Monday.
