Sounding somewhat tired in the tone of her voice, Handler ended the clip with an apology and by, of course, showcasing her hilarious comedic touch.  

‘I will see you all when I see you, and I’m sorry that I had to cancel. But I’m all OK. And I’m not pregnant.

In all, she cancelled three stand-up gigs: early and late shows in Portland on Friday, February 4, as well as the following night on Saturday, February 5 in Eugene, Oregon.  

For the video, the New Jersey native was dressed in a traditional hospital patient gown and had a wire attached to her chest.

Later on Saturday, after being discharged from the hospital, Handler returned to Instagram to give her 4.3 million fans and followers an update on her condition.

‘Okay everybody, I’m safe and sound. Everything’s okay,’ she shared, seemingly from her bedroom with boyfriend Jo Koy sitting just feet away on the bed.

She had on a facial mask as she spoke to the camera.

‘I’m just going to chill out for a couple of weeks to recover because my Buddha came and rescued me,’ she joked, in a reference to her beloved pet pooch, as she turned the camera on Koy, 50.

After quickly showing her beloved pet pooch, Buddha, Handler then took time out to thank all the well-wishers.

‘I’m going through all my DMs, well I’m trying too,’ she continued, adding, ‘Thank you for all the love. You’re so sweet, everyone is just so sweet for caring so much about my well-being.’
