Rue McClanahan Recovering from Minor Stroke
The Emmy Award-winning actress underwent the surgery in November after being diagnosed with acute cardiac illness during a routine physical exam. She then spent two weeks in the ICU after doctors successfully removed a blood clot in her brain. Her recovery has been slow but steady, with her speech and movement on the right side of her body affected. She is currently undergoing physical therapy and is expected to be released from the hospital by the end of the month.
