'As you know I had a stroke in Sept 2015 and when Brielle called Kroy to tell him something wasn't "right" with me I remember him yelling, 'Brielle get her in the auto NOW and take her to the hospital fast every minute count!' It's TRUE!, Kim wrote referencing her husband Kroy Biermann.
Kim Zolciak-Biermann has her quick-thinking family to thank for her stroke recovery.
Former VP Biden makes Schenectady part of book tour
PROMISE ME, DAD chronicles 2015, the most momentous and challenging year in Vice President Biden's extraordinary life and career. The book is set to come out on November 14. "Give me your word that no matter what happens, you're going to be all right".
"Now I can really fix it and move on instead of having a true stroke where I never recover, or my doctor said a massive heart attack", she said, according to People "Anything that has to do with your heart and brain is pretty scary, but I mean, heck, I've been through it, I'm okay". "I'm so thankful for my medical team", she continued. She shared a post her daughter, Brielle sent her titled "Stroke Identification". "I have nearly fully recovered (sometimes my tongue slips when I speak, and sometimes I have the word on the tip of my tongue but it just doesn't come out) but I feel great!"
'I had my stroke at 37! It can happen to anyone at any age! "When it doubt please always check it out!" It's going to be over in a minute, just hold on, ' " she recalled. That condition allowed the blood clot that caused her stroke to reach her brain in the first place.
They also have Kim's older daughters Brielle, 20, and 15-year-old Ariana. "[But] you really don't realize how precious life is and how something can just - it literally happened in a second and my whole life changed".
