May Leonard Nimoy continue to live long and prosper.

The Star Trek star was reportedly hospitalized with chest pains last week, but he was up and tweeting yesterday and today, each message tagged with his trademark "LLAP" sign-off.

The Los Angeles Fire Department confirms to E! News that paramedics responded to a medical call from Nimoy's Bel Air address that was made at 7:31 a.m. on Feb. 19 and one person was transported to the hospital via ambulance. Due to privacy regulations, officials would not disclose the patient's identity.

A rep for Nimoy could not immediately be reached for comment. TMZ reported that he was taken to UCLA Medical Center.

Just over a year ago, the now 83-year-old actor revealed that he had been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease after he was photographed in a wheelchair and with with an oxygen tube in his nose at the airport.

"I quit smoking 30 years ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP," he explained at the time, adding, "I'm doing OK. Just can't walk distances. Love my life, family, friends and followers. LLAP."

It's unclear whether he has been released from the hospital yet, or how much time he spent there at all, but yesterday he posted a snippet from his original poetry on Twitter:

And today his perspective seemed just as intact, Nimoy writing, "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP."

LLAP, indeed.
