LeAnn Rimes Hospitalized With Dental Infection

LeAnn Rimes was hospitalized earlier this week when she was stricken by a sudden dental infection. The singer was forced to cancel her performance in Wendover, Nevada on October 5, when she was admitted to the E.R. for an unspecified condition.

She later revealed to fans via Twitter that she was "under anesthesia" for a "massive infection," saying: "I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat."

On October 7, she hit her official website to update her health status to fans:

"The ER at 3am, THAT is an interesting place to be. Feeling much better now, thanks to my husband's best friend who's an ER doc. I've been living in a dental nightmare for 10 months. I'm getting back on track though, I hope."

"Thank you all for your support and understanding . . . Let's just pray I'm on the mend. I'll see you all on the road very soon," she said a day later.
