Seriously, rest up and get better, Gallagher!

Just 10 days after being hospitalized and placed in a medically-induced coma as the result of a heart attack in Texas, the veteran comedian suffered yet another one last night, his rep confirms.

According to TMZ, Gallagher ran out of his heart medication, felt chest pains coming on again and was rushed to a hospital in Arizona. He's in stable condition says his rep, who released the following statement:

"Gallagher suffered a mild heart attack today at a hospital in Sedona due to complications from his previous heart attack. He is awake and resting comfortably now."

Gallagher initially planned on continuing his tour after the first incident, but then told friends he was retiring from the business. Based on this follow-up hospitalization, it's clear he's making the right choice. We wish the watermelon-smashing funny man all the best.
