There was a health scare in the Bravo family yesterday when The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was taken to the hospital for a mystery illness. After tweeting a picture of herself with a couple of painful looking IVs, rumors began swirling about what could be ailing the reality star, especially after a previously posted cryptic message about an unspecified sickness.
The mystery has been solved, however, now that NeNe has taken to her website to update fans on her condition.She writes, “Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath. I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out.After some routine tests I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lung. I’m told this happened to me because of the constant traveling around the country that I do for my job.” She continues, “I’m thankful to be alive as the doctor advised me that most people don’t recognize the symptoms of blood clots and don’t go to the doctor and that’s when the big problems start happening.”
While many fans were speculating that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star had suffered a heart attack, this obviously wasn’t the case. Blood clots in the lungs are nothing to take lightly, however, and the reality star is still recovering in the hospital. “I am fortunate to have had a wonderful experience with the doctors and nurses who took care of me.” She also has her family supporting her too.She writes, “I’m blessed to be home with my wonderful Husband and family!”
Best wishes for a speedy recovery, NeNe!
