Andy Rooney in Hospital

Andy Rooney, who delivered his last essay on “60 Minutes” three weeks ago, was in the hospital Tuesday after developing serious complications following surgery.

CBS said the 92-year-old writer’s condition was stable and, at the request of his family, offered no other information about his medical problems or where he was hospitalized.

The three-time Emmy-winner was a regular presence on television’s most popular newsmagazine. Since 1978, “A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney” wrapped up the Sunday night program, often with a look at the absurdities of life and language.

Rooney could talk about what was in the news or what was in his closet. One of his Emmy Awards was for an essay about whether there was a real Mrs. Smith behind Mrs. Smith’s Pies.

On Oct. 2, he delivered his 1,097th and final essay, saying it was a moment he dreaded.

“I wish I could do this forever. I can’t, though,” he said.
