"He's on antibiotics. Because Jerry is 91, they wanted to take precautions” Cazau stated. At this time -- according to Radar Online -- it is unclear whether or not Jerry Lewis has been discharged from the Las Vegas hospital. Lewis began his long-running career in Hollywood at the tender age of 5-years-old.

Despite numerous health issues, Jerry has remained adamant about continuing to work for decades.

Jerry Lewis vows to keep performing until the end

Over the years the original "Nutty Professor" star has suffered many health issues, including two heart attacks, battling prostate cancer, chronic lung disease, and Type 1 diabetes. Sources close to Lewis have previously revealed that Jerry is bound and determined to keep performing right up to the end. They have also claimed that for Jerry it is not about money, the comedian/actor is estimated to be worth around $50 million.

For Jerry, it is all about the applause and the thrill he gets from entertaining his fans. In 1948 Jerry became one half of one of the most famous comedy teams ever, pairing up with crooner and Rat Pack member Dean Martin for "Martin and Lewis," a televised comedy program.

The comedy team also starred together in a number of classic comedy films such as "The Stooge," "Money From Home," "Pardners," "Scared Stiff," and "That's My Boy," to name a few.

After numerous personal and creative differences, the duo parted ways in 1956. The pair reconciled their friendship privately in 1976. Martin made a surprise appearance on Lewis' annual Labor Day telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, orchestrated by mutual friend Frank Sinatra.

The reunion was big news, and, according to Lewis, the two spoke "every day after that." Lewis is best known for his charitable work, hosting the live "Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon" for 44 years.

In August of 2011, a formal announcement was made stating that Lewis would no longer host the MDA telethons and would no longer associate with the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Who doesn't remember tuning in during Labor Day weekend to catch all the great entertainment the celebrity brought us, while raising money for a great cause?
