All was looking great a couple weeks ago when Tommy wrote:

“I’m having a Knee Replacement surgery this morning. Please keep me in your prayers! Love you all!”

Then a week after his surgery, Tommy took to social media once again to let his followers know that he is doing great and has been released early.

He writes:

“Hey Family…I thank you all for all your prayers…God heard you!!! My doctor was a little surprised that I was stronger than anticipated for an old fat fart replacing a knee. He said he knew the knee was bad but after opening me up it was much worse than he thought, but God is good! I passed the test and was released a day earlier! I’m in a little pain which is expected after a major surgery but I started therpy this morning and on my way to recovery! Thanks for your prayers and words of encouragement! Love y’all!!!”

Here is where things change up and multiple reports Big Tommy Fords is fighting for his life on Life Support after the 52-year-old went into a state of unconsciousness Wednesday in an Atlanta hospital.

According to his wife, Gina, told TMZ on Sunday Tommy was RUSHED to the hospital after an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen. He is on life support at an Atlanta hospital but doctors are doubtful that he will make it through the day.

Gina, says the family is still praying for him.

What is so sad, is that Tommy had been rehabbing after he had his knee replacement surgery.

Tommy starred in all 5 seasons of “Martin” as the title character’s level-headed best friend, who often played a straight man to Martin’s crazy antics. His TV career also took him to “New York Undercover,” “The Jamie Foxx Show” and “The Parkers.”

In Ford also wrote children’s books that promoted drug-free and violence-free lifestyles.

As for Anthony Anderson tweets?

The Black-ish star was given some miss information and posted that Tommy had passed n Twitter in support of his friend. He’s since deleted the tweet.
