Get well soon, Bob Barker!
The 93-year-old former Price Is Right star was hospitalized last week after suffering a scary fall in his Hollywood Hills, CA home.

Bob was in the bathroom when he reportedly slipped, fell, and hit his head. He called 911 and paramedics arrived on the scene, but the TV star requested that his housekeeper drive him to the emergency room instead of being taken by an ambulance, his rep explained.
TMZ — who was the first outlet to report this news — additionally reported the game show host was “pretty shaken” after the fall despite having no visible injuries. Bob allegedly spent several hours in the hospital undergoing tests before being sent home.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first health issue Bob has faced in recent years. In October 2015, police and rescue personnel were called to the star’s home after he tripped and fell on a sidewalk. He was subsequently taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to receive stitches on his forehead and treatment for a knee injury.

In 2002, Bob was hospitalized after suffering a stroke. A few months later, he underwent prostate surgery. He has also previously had surgery to correct a blockage in his carotid artery, suffered a mild stroke in 1991, and has been treated for several bouts of skin cancer.
