Mark Cuban, one of the millionaire business mogul sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank, learned an important lesson in life last night. No matter how rich or famous you are, health problems can happen; not only can they happen, but they’re just as painful as if you’re a regular person. Mark checked himself into a Toronto hospital on the 16th and tweeted all about his experience with passing a kidney stone. Want all the gory details? Keep reading!
Mark Cuban checked himself into the Toronto, Canada Mt. Sinai hospital on Sunday without much fanfare, simply tweeting thanks to the doctors and nurses. “Waiting my turn at a Toronto Hospital Fri nite. Thx to all the nurses and docs @ toronto mt sinai hospital” Once speculation over the cause of the admission got to be too much for Mr. Cuban to handle, he decided to share his kidney stone experience with his 1.5 million Twitter followers.
‘Kidney stones are no fun.If this one pops out in one piece I’m either going to get it bronzed or sell it on eBay #pukinglikeaftermyfirstbeer”
“Kidney stones are no joke..its good when im doubled over because that means its moving, right.. #twitterpaindistraction”
He then asks his followers to distract him from the pain by naming his kidney stone. “What should I name the little f*cker ? #nameCubanskidneystone. #moredistractionspleas”
“I’d gladly trade this kidney stone for an alien probe..”
Tell Em I’m doing this stone grandpa style. No really, …. #stuffyouthinktryingtopassakidneystone
Poor Mark! It seems that the process was excruciating. Finally, yesterday, Mark tweeted victory over the stone!
