Zolciak flew out of Los Angeles Tuesday night after performing on the second night of Dancing with the Stars this week. Upon arriving back at her home in Atlanta Wednesday morning, Zolciak suffered a mini-stroke, otherwise known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA). A TIA is when a blood clot temporarily blocks an artery.
“The last 24hrs have been whirlwind! I landed yesterday morning from LAX (took the red eye right after DWTS) I got home and within minutes suffered a TIA (mini stroke),” Zolciak captioned a picture of herself at the hospital on Instagram. “The left side of my body went completely numb and my speech was gone.”
“Extremely grateful for @sladeosborne @briellebiermann @nikitpressley @kroybiermann for quick reactions!” Zolciak added. “I have 100%of my feeling back THANK GOD. Still in the hospital but I just know I’m getting released today!. #CrazyAgeDoesntMatter”
“All that matters… FAMILY,” Zolciak captioned a picture of herself cuddling with her husband, Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann.
As of yet it’s unknown if Zolciak, who is partnered with professional dancer Tony Dovolani on Dancing With the Stars, plans to return to the dancing competition.
