In February 2021, Southern Charm's Patricia Altschul and her son, Whitney Sudler-Smith, confirmed that Michael Kelcourse suffered from an acute spinal cord infarction, which is also known as a spinal cord stroke. In the year since, they have kept fans up-to-date on Michael's recovery.
On Monday (February 28), Patricia gave the latest news on what's next for Michael, sharing that he would be moving from the facility he had been receiving treatment at to a new facility closer to his loved ones. "Congratulations to Michael. He is on his way to a new life in Florida in a beautiful assisted living facility… importantly near his family," Patricia shared on Instagram. "All best wishes to Michael on this new adventure."
She also added a few sweet hashtags including his nickname, Michael the Butler, as well as "[consummate] professional," "perfect gentleman," "animal lover," and "all around great guy."
That sentiment was mirrored several months ago. Back in November, Patricia also showed her support for her longtime butler as he was in the midst of his recovery, sharing, "We all miss you and are continually impressed by your dedication to overcome this hardship."
Patricia has been caring for Michael's cat during his recovery. Several weeks ago, she shared a photo of his pet hanging out at her home in Charleston and lounging in bed. And the Instagram also included another update on Michael. "Michael is adjusting well to assisted living now and is learning how to drive a van manually," she wrote.
In fact, Patricia has not missed the chance to share sweet updates on Michael's cat in the last year. "I’ve been taking care of Michael’s kitty until he is able to do so," Patricia previously shared about the feline. "She has settled right in being in the main house and pays no attention to the dogs."
