UPDATE (February 8, 11:30 a.m.): Anderson passed away Thursday evening. See the full obituary here.
February 5, 11:15 p.m. "The account of Myron's unfortunate health episode was not quoted to you accurately," writes Myron Anderson's publicist Danye' Roland. "Here are the facts as we know them."
"Myron was having a normal quiet Sunday at home with his family. During the evening Myron complained to his wife that he didn't feel well. After a short time, Mrs. Anderson thought it best to have Myron evaluated by a health professional. Myron was taken to a local health facility where he was hospitalized for observation and testing -- he's [sic] remains hospitalized at present and is currently being treated with the goal of complete recovery."
Additionally, Chris Tucker, who gave us a shout this evening, tells us that he wasn't present at the time Anderson fell ill and what he had told us earlier was based on "hearsay."
