NeNe Leakes was hospitalized for having blood clots in her lung. That sounds terrifying. She assured her fans that she did NOT have a heart attack. Here’s what else she said, via Long Island Newsday:
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.
She says she got the blood clots 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.
Well great, now I’m paranoid that every little thing wrong with me is a blood clot. She tweeted this photo of her with IVs in her arm with, “My arms are hurting wit these IV’s #blessedtobealive…”
She’s out of the hospital and has been tweeting “thank yous” to fans. She seems to be doing okay. Let’s hope she paid her hospital bill.
