The Real Housewives of Atlanta star reveals she is “thankful to be alive” following her hospitalization for blood clot in her lungs. Yikes. Sounds pretty serious.

But before she revealing her health issue, Nene first took to her official website on Monday, Nov. 18 to share a photo of herself laying in bed in a hospital gown with multiple IVs in both of her arms. She simply stated that she was “blessed to be alive.”

Nene then took to her website again on Tuesday to explain her illness: “Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath,” she wrote. ”I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out.
