The RHOA star says she's "blessed to be home" after health scare.

Send your well-wishes to NeNe Leakes!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Star is home and recovering after she was admitted to the hospital last week. NeNe checked herself in after feeling a "little short of breath," she writes on her website.

After undergoing tests, doctors diagnosed her with blood clots in her lung. "I'm told this happened to me because of the constant traveling around the country that I do for my job," she says, refuting reports that claimed she had a heart attack.

Thankfully, doctors discovered the health issue in time and NeNe says she is "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!"

Send your well wishes to NeNe for a speedy recovery in the comments.

Heart scare....the question is did the doctor's fine one!!!!!  NoNo you still are class less.  Eating/sampling food while shopping in a super market ( when there are NO samples) just confirms you have no class and are a P I G - hog!!!!  No one wants to eat food touch by your hands to your huge mouth!you!!!  And why would Cnythia ask for advise about her daughter and dating.   Wasn't it your son who had a child out of wedlock????

Hello NeNe, 

 

My sincere regrets for you having to endure a hospital stay, but praise be given to the heavenly father for allowing you to weather this storm. Be Bless, and more so be a blessing to another.

Blood clots are very serious, so take care of yourself.  If you're on blood thinners now......you will not be able to eat green leafy vegetables I'm told.

Hey NeNe. All the best to you. I know you'll have a speedy recovery. I had a PE last February & like you ended up hospitalized for 7 days. I had no risk factors except too much sitting, but no more. Since I had that scare I no longer sit for extended periods of times. I started walking on a daily basis or doing yoga & recently started weight training w a trainer that comes to my home weekly. It was a difficult to accept that I now had to be on warfarin, but I must say there is a silver lining. I feel better than ever and have lost weight. You can do this. You're a strong woman admired by many women. I do not watch housewives but I follow you and your career. Hand in there. You're in my prayers.

Wishing you a full and speedy recovery.  Blood clots on your lungs are scary, I was diagnosed with that a few years ago, rest and follow doctors' orders.

Hi NeNe, 

I hope you are feeling better! I know that can be very scary because my mom suffered from pulmonary embolism but she was much older than you are and she had had 5 strokes, so for her the diagnosis was not a positive one. Anyway, get plenty of rest and I will keep you in my prayers. Tell Greg to take good care of you because we need Our NeNe to keep us laughing and to keep it REAL on RHOA! GET WELL SOON!!
