Nene Leaks is probably one of the most recognizable names and faces of the entire Real Housewives series. The star of the Atlanta version and most recently, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding, she has many adoring fans who welcome her and her family into their homes every week.
The Huffington Post is reporting that NeNe Leakes suffered a health scare earlier this week. After tweeting a picture of herself with a hospital gown on, many took to social media to wish her well and to send her positive energy, Although it is not clear what the nature of the illness was, initially some speculated that it was related to exhaustion.
This afternoon, in true NeNe fashion, she candidly explained what happened. She posted the following on her official website:
First and foremost, I so dearly love and appreciate each and every one of you for your concern and your prayers.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.
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.
Contrary to published reports I did not have a heart attack.
I am fortunate to have had a wonderful experience with the doctors and nurses who took care of me.
I’m blessed to be home with my wonderful Husband and family! Look who crawled in the hospital bed with me…
We wish NeNe a speedy and healthy recovery!
