Ronnie Kidney Stones

Ronnie is in ‘a lot of pain’ and will remain hospitalized ‘for several days.’

Remember that episode of Friends when Joey got his kidney stones out and it seemed really, really painful? Well, that’s what Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is now experiencing, as the former Jersey Shore star receives treatment for his own stones in a Florida hospital.

“Ronnie was admitted to an Orlando area hospital late Saturday night [April 27],” Ronnie’s rep tells People. “He’s in a lot of pain and is expected to remain there for several days.”

Fortunately, the mag reports, Ronnie’s girlfriend Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola rushed down to Florida to be by his side! She even Instagrammed a(n old) picture of herself with Ronnie, just to let the world know he’s on her mind.

Ronnie’s ‘Jersey Shore’ Co-Stars Send Their Love

And Sammi’s not the only one of Ronnie’s former sea-side roommates to show her support.

“Sendin love to my bro @MTVRonnie,” Vinny Guadagnino tweeted April 29. “He’s sick, everyone give him a twitter hug. #getwellronnie #imronniefromjerseyshore.”

(Kudos to Vinny sending his friend well-wishes, while also managing to mock Ronnie’s hilarious Xenadrine commercial.
