Deezer D Released From Hospital

21 July 2009 2:56 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Deezer D has been discharged from a Los Angeles hospital just days after undergoing major heart surgery.

The former ER star, who played Nurse Malik McGrath of the hit medical drama, had his aorta replaced and a leaking heart valve fixed in a gruelling six-hour operation last week.

The actor - real name Dearon Thompson - has now been released to continue recuperating at home and he is thankful to his former TV co-stars and fans for lending their support in his time of need.

He tells, "Most of the cast from ER supported me - Eriq La Salle, Noah Wiley were at my bedside before and after my surgery. Shi McBride came and stayed with me and supported me."

And Thompson admits his health scare has strengthened his belief in a higher power.

He adds: "Thanks for all the prayers and love, the entire experience made God more tangible in my life. I just can't explain in words what I felt." »

ER actor Deezer D is recovering in hospital after undergoing major surgery to correct potentially fatal heart problems.

The star, who played Nurse Malik McGrath on the long-running medical drama, had his aorta replaced and a leaking heart valve fixed in a gruelling six-hour operation on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Deezer - real name Dearon Thompson - is currently in the intensive care unit as he recuperates.

A source close to the actor tells, "It's the watch-and-wait period now but if all goes well, he'll be moved to a regular floor for another seven days.

"Once his cardiologist gives the all-clear, he'll be home - but with no more cigars and no strenuous exercise for awhile." »
