Some happy news to report: Eddie Judge appears to be on the mend after several ups and downs amid his heart issues over the last few months. The Real Housewives of Orange Countyt husband underwent his third cardiac ablation last month, the latest in several heart-related procedures he's had in the wake of being diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, an irregular and often rapid heart rate. And now he's just waiting to find out what his medical team has to say about what the future holds for him.
"He goes to the doctor next week and we find out exactly what's going on. So far, he feels so much better," Tamra Judge told The Daily Dish this week. "He's off his heart medication for the first time in a year. He still has to take blood thinners and he still has to be careful because with blood thinners, there's other problems you can have. We have our fingers crossed that ... he's done with this and he can move on. He might need one more procedure to close a little area of his heart — but we'll find out in a couple weeks."
Tamra's bestie, Shannon Beador, shared earlier this month that Eddie has since started to become physically active again thanks to a recent bike ride, and Tamra noted "since that ablation, he's been a lot better."
Eddie has definitely made it clear on Instagram that he's itching to step up his physical activity and get back to his normal routine and Tamra is hopeful that is what's next for her husband. "[He's looking forward to] just getting his life back," she said. "He's not active right now. He's trying, baby steps, and just wants to get healthy ... he's in the right direction right now."
