NeNe Leakes was hospitalized on Monday after falling ill and diagnosed with blood clot in her lung.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star wrote on her website that she went to be checked out by a doctor when she started feeling short of breath … only for doctors to discover that she was suffering from pulmonary embolism (blood clot in lung) … a fatal disease that often results in the sudden death of the sufferer.
So when Leakes posted the picture below on Twitter with the caption, ‘My arms are hurting wit these IV’s #blessedtobealive,’ you bet she was not exaggerating.
Anyway, Leakes says she’s now recovering at home, did not suffer any heart attack, and once again, she’s ‘thankful to be alive’.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
