NeNe Leakes experienced quite the health scare last month. A frightening blood clot emergency left her in the hospital, hooked up to an IV and reliant on the assistance of friends and family members. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has been home for several weeks now, but she’s still dealing with the burdens of the recovery effort.
Here’s hoping that NeNe Leakes will be fully recovered in time for the launch of 2014! In the aftermath of her scary hospital visit, the reality star is slowly starting to get back into her usual routine. But she’s still planning on taking it easy for the rest of the holiday season…or at least, easy for the likes of NeNe Leakes. She’ll spend Christmas in the comfort of her own home, moving on to Las Vegas to ring in the new year.
In a recent interview with E! News, NeNe admitted that, yes, she still has her down days. “I’m not 100 percent, but I’m trying to get there…It takes about six weeks to really get back to feeling yourself, but I’m on blood thinners now.”
So, no, not 100 percent yet, but just wait — the old NeNe Leakes will be out and about in no time! The star said she hoped to be fully recovered in the next few weeks. “I would have to say I’m about 80 percent. I’m doing a lot better.”
NeNe also confessed that there’s no way she’d be feeling this good so soon without the support of loved ones. Gregg Leakes has been particularly helpful — his grateful wife labels him the absolute “best nurse.”
