Due to a back injury sustained by the Emmy Award-winning talk show host, doctors suggested DeGeneres remain on bed rest until they could perform further tests. The workaholic DeGeneres decided to incorporate her condition into the show rather than cancel. So, guests this week (among them Ryan Seacrest and Lindsay Lohan) have sat bedside with her or in their own roll-on hospital bed.
