“So this happened last night. I got admitted to hospital with pneumonia, possibly meningitis,” the former Chopped Canada host Dean McDermott, 52, captioned a selfie of himself on Monday. I’ve never been so sick in my life!!!!”

McDermott added, “Thumbs up and spirits up though” and the hashtags “#sickasadog #aintnothang #thistoshallpass #blipontheradar.”

McDermott, Tori Spelling’s husband, revealed that he was under the weather a few days ago after injuring his back then getting a 102 degree fever; the injury and illness, he shared, was seemingly sparked after simply picking up a towel to dry his face.

“Epic fail!!” he wrote. “How’d I get the 102 fever?? Courtesy of my son Finn McDermott. Needless to say it ruined the family’s plans to fly to Vancouver today.”

He and Spelling share Liam, 12, Stella, 11, Hattie, 7, Finn, 6, and Beau, 2. McDermott also coparents Jack, 20, with his ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace.
