Disney Channel Star Hospitalized for Life-Threatening Illnesses

By  | 

October was a rough month for Ryan McCartan. Just weeks after he and his Disney Channel co-star Dove Cameron decided to call off their engagement, the 23-year-old was rushed to the hospital (on Halloween, mind you) with a series of illnesses that he says were life-threatening.

Yesterday, the Liv and Maddie actor shared a picture of himself in the hospital with an IV in his arm.

“This is how I spent my Halloween after a series of food-poisoning, dehydration and diabetes-related complications…” he captioned the photo. “Life is precious but fragile, and boy did I get that reminder! Grateful for an amazing sister, family, and friends who quite literally saved my life yesterday. Doing better today — thanks for the well wishes.”

We don’t know many other details about the actor’s illnesses, but it seems things were very serious for a while and we’re SO glad he was able to get the medical attention he needed.

While Ryan couldn’t take part in Halloween on Monday, he was fortunately able to celebrate a couple days before. He, Jennette McCurdy, Miranda Cosgrove and some other friends dressed up as characters from Scooby Doo over the weekend.

We’ll be keeping the The Rocky Horror Picture Show star in our thoughts and prayers as he rests and recovers from the scary situation.
