The famous fitness guru has disappeared from the public eye in February 2014, leaving many people concerned about his well-being. It was recently revealed that he was hospitalized for indigestion last week, but has since been released home.

After going through this health scare, Richard decided to give a shout out to the hospital staff in a post published on his Facebook page.

“Hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday. I wanted to take a moment to send a big thank you to the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center during my short stay there this week. They make you feel good even though you’re in the hospital for feeling bad,” the fitness guru said in the Facebook post.

“Another shout out goes to the wonderful men and women of the Los Angeles Police Dept. They were so helpful and kind as I returned home. Let’s take a minute and all be thankful for medical professionals, police, firefighters and our brave military forces here and around the world. They risk so much every day to make us well and keep us protected. God Bless all of them,” he added.

Simmons was seen leaving the hospital while wearing a blanket over his face, making it his first public appearance in three years. Richard noted that he’s not ‘missing,’ but just a little under the weather at the moment.
