As Radar reported, the 87-year-old suffered a sudden and devastating stoke last week. The mother-of-ten is currently recovering at home and is being comforted by her family.
“The family has all gathered around her to give her support,” an insider told Radar exclusively. “But she is the one that is usually in the best shape and she takes care of everyone, so it is really mentally hard on her.”
“The children and the grandchildren are there,” the source added. “The kids are not leaving her side. She has the family around her 24/7 since the stroke.”
The stroke came as a complete surprise, as Michael’s mom was said to be in good health. And although she is already out of the hospital, resting next to her husband of nearly 70 years, Joe, she is having trouble speaking and has poor movement in the left side of her body.
“It’s really bad, and very sudden,” the source revealed. “Joe has a team of nurses and Katherine now has in-home nurses. There are additional nurses now and they are both being cared for in their home.”
