NeNeLeaks She has a lot to be thankful for this year and she did just that, as she shared her health update on Wednesday Instagram stories Nearly two months after her son suffered a horrific stroke.
On September 26, 23-year-old Brent Lakes suffered from congestive heart failure and a stroke that left him unable to walk and struggling with his speech, as I first reported before. TMZ In early October.
The “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” The alum shared a series of photos and videos that show how much hard work Brentt did during his time in the rehab facility.
Nene’s followers could see him coordinating and walking while he was strapped to a high harness that kept him upright and mobile. In one of the shots, Nene can be seen looking at him as he sleeps. “Nothing but God,” she captioned this photo.
In a hit video that can also be beautifully hilarious, Brennt can be seen shaking his head and rolling his eyes as he’s filmed simply walking the halls — but it’s easy to see why his family considers this a miracle.
On another slide NeNe writes “He walks and talks,” with a calling hands emoji. In another, she notes, “Home just in time for the holidays,” while praising his nurses in multiple segments.
It’s incredible that we juxtapose these videos of him smiling and letting out – and even reacting a bit with annoyance since it’s so normal for a 23-year-old – with some shots of him in even more intense rehab.
It’s hard to fathom the emotional challenge this has been for the entire family these past two months, and how much hard work Brennt has put in to achieve such an incredible outcome.
Nene’s friend, Nyonicella Sioh, shared a video on his Instagram Stories on Tuesday, as captured by Atlanta Black Star, from Brent joining him and Nene for dinner at Nobu in Atlanta. He said, “My man is back.” Brentt also shared the clip to his IG Stories, per the outlet.
NeNe first opened up about Brentt’s health crisis two weeks after it began in another IG Stories video, captured here by TMZ.
She emphasized that he did not drink, did drugs, or had HIV or Covid, all of which were possible reasons why he had such serious health problems at his age. At the time, Ni said doctors were still unsure of the cause of the crisis.
Nene clearly has a lot to be thankful for now with her son doing well and coming home in time for Thanksgiving and the entire upcoming holiday season.
