The bubbly and enthusiastic soap vet shared a photo of her wearing a hospital gown. Many of her followers were alarmed especially in today’s time where an increasing number of people are getting infected with COVID-19.
“St. Joe’s hospital in Burbank. NO CORONA. A bleeding ulcer yippee!!!” the actress said in the photo’s caption. This is not something that anybody should be happy about but since the world is facing coronavirus pandemic right now, not being diagnosed with COVID-19 is good news.
“Should be home today. Y’all stay safe and home.. self-quarantine. Thank you to everyone. I’m good you stay that way too,” the actress added.

However, the actress shared that there were some scary moments. She also provided some updates about her health. Darbo said she’s home now but is experiencing body aches.
“On Wednesday, I woke up feeling like I had indigestion. We’d had pizza for dinner. I had one piece as the pepperoni [was] too spicy. Anyway, I just kind of walked around then asked [my husband] Rolf to pat my back,” she replied to the email sent by Soap Hub.
Darbo thought that she’ll feel better after that but it didn’t. She felt even worse. She ended up rushing to the bathroom where she threw up and vomited blood. The actress admitted that she didn’t want to go to the hospital. She knows that all the doctors and nurses have a lot of things on their plate right now because of COVID-19 and she didn’t want to add to their troubles.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Darbo Rushed To The ER
“So I called Urgent care and she said GO NOW TO EMERGENCY ROOM. Rolf drove me to St Joe’s. He had to drop me off. He couldn’t get out of the car,” she recalled.
“A guard checks you in in the parking lot. I got checked in very fast — the place was empty. So the doctor did a CAT scan, saw blood in my stomach and did endoscopic surgery where they cauterize a bleeding ulcer,” Darbo shared.
The actress also left one piece of important advice for all her fans and followers. “Don’t take anything but Tylenol for pain. Ibuprofen is your enemy!!” she said.
