Leonard Nimoy's Health

He was seen on oxygen and in a wheelchair through JFK airport

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-n...9#.UukL1PldV8E

I've also read a few tabloid articles stating he's one of the iconic actors, not expected to make it through the year.

Hopefully these rumors are exaggerated and he'll make a speedy recovery.

This is threaded elsewhere. He looks good to me. When I am in my 80s, I want to be wheeled through airports. They are friggin' huge.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

Unfortunately, time catches up with all of us. It'll be a shock to me when Shatner and Nimoy move on from this world. They've been a central part of my life since I was four-years old.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

it's not surprising that a man in his early eighties is not in the best of health. I hope he is doing well but it would not surprise me if he is not.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

About 1/3 of the living TOS actors are over 80 and the vast majority of those younger were very young actors who played mostly bit parts as random crewpersons.

So the fact is that the next 10 years will see almost every important figure in TOS leave us.

A very sobering thought.

If he's doing his own tweeting (and it seems to me he is), he is still of very sound mind.

Mr. Nimoy just tweeted,"@TheRealNimoy: I quit smoking 30 yrs ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP"

I'm hoping for the best for him.

Meanwhile, Shatner is still climbing buildings to defend the honor of his daughter. Clearly he made a deal with the Devil.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

^ I just saw the full run of Fringe and I was impressed that Nimoy was in such great shape, so this news does come as a surprise. But as others above said, he's not a young man anymore. Still, I wish him the best.
