Kim Zolciak-Biermann Releases Statement From Home After Mini Stroke: 'I Hope This Will Not Be the End of Dancing'
The Dancing With the Stars contestant had a transient ischemic attack after flying home from the reality competition in Los Angeles on Sept. 23.
In a statement to PEOPLE, the Bravo star says she’s eager to return to the ABC series.
“I want to thank everyone for their love and support over the past few days,” she says. “I am now home with my family, resting and taking care of my health. I can’t express enough how much I love dancing and this whole experience, and I hope this will not be the end of dancing.”
Zolciak-Biermann was discharged on Friday after having a final procedure. “The left side of my body went completely numb and my speech was gone,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of her from the hospital, on Thursday.
The 37-year-old’s fellow cast members and DWTS partner Tony Dovolani rallied around her during the hospitalization.
“After spending only a few weeks with Kim, it is evident of how much of a fighter she is,” Dovolani said in an earlier statement to PEOPLE. “Her humor and positivity are still shining through, and it’s amazing to see the love and support of her family. We are hoping for a speedy recovery.”
