The comedian—who has his 12th child on the way—shared photos of himself in a beanie and face mask from his hospital bed, adding the hashtag #LupusWarrior.

He told People at the time that his kidney condition is “something I’m going to be living with all my life.” As he said back then, “I feel blessed to be alive.”
