The indomitable Charlie Sheen is back in recovery mode. But not like that.

While speculation abounded in the wake of the Two and a Half Men star's health scare yesterday that the actor may once again be going off the rails (even as a perfectly plausible medical explanation surfaced for his emergency room trip), Sheen's rep denied rumors that the sitcom star would be seeking out any rehabilitation.

Instead, and rather surprisingly, he'll be heading straight to…


"Charlie Sheen left the hospital last night and is at home," his rep told E! News. "He will be on the set of Two and a Half Men on Tuesday."

On the one hand, this is very good news for Sheen's health. On the other hand, that means he's got another long weekend to get through.

Yesterday an ambulance was called to the actor's home at 6:35 a.m. and took Sheen to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. His rep said that the 45-year-old was suffering from "severe abdominal pain."

Speculation as to the cause of that pain ran the gamut from his hernia to fallout from a rumored two-day bender. Whatever the culprit, father Martin Sheen and ex Denise Richards both rushed to his side at the hospital, and while both kept relatively mum about their visits, sources told E! News that Sheen is expected to be just fine.
