As TMZ reported, Judge was taken by ambulance to the hospital after complaining of intestinal discomfort.
Judge said, "I'm really fine.� I wanted to go back to work this afternoon," adding, "I'm exhausted.� I'm just tired. �� A lot of things just zoned together, including the bad news of the world."
Her Honor also said, "At my age, I know my body.� My body is fine."
Judy says she's at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A.., where she just had an MRI.� Doctors are doing a few more tests and she says she'll be out tomorrow.
Judy says, "I'm gonna go home tomorrow.� It was a bad idea to fly home tonight."
Judy has one big regret about going to the hospital today.� She says some people from Las Vegas were coming to see her this afternoon to talk about a new Judge Judy slot machine.� She says the meeting will be put on hold for a week.
Harvey to Judy:� Get back on the bench, stat!
