AllAboutTRH reported last month exclusively that Mama Elsa’s health requiring surgery was the reason why Marysol Patton had to come back to Real Housewives of Miami in a “friend” role instead of a full-fledged Housewife role, and now she is opening up about the details surrounding Mama Elsa’s stroke!
Marysol tells the Miami Herald that Mama Elsa is currently convalescing with an aide at home, trying to get back into her routine after suffering a stroke back in March.
“I received a call from her household staff that they had arrived at the house and found her unconscious on the floor of her bedroom. I immediately called 911 and drove over. She was shaking and unable to walk or barely sit up and her eyes were fixated staring up to left. The paramedics carried her down the stairs wrapped in a sheet to the ambulance. She was rushed to the hospital for a brain scan,” recounts Marysol.
Doctors had to rush to perform surgery in order to relieve blood trapped in Elsa’s brain. Marysol consulted with Alexia who had also been through something similar with her son Frankie after his accident, which also damaged his brain.
“The production company was very flexible with me and allowed me to film around my schedule which involved hospital visits, coordinating mom’s move back home and my day to day operations of my company,” explains Marysol. “I filmed what I could, when I was available in the role of a ‘friend’ of the Housewives.”
It’s such a tragic story because Mama Elsa is so lively and just such a joy to watch on TV! But we’re glad she is recovering and doing better each day. Plus, judging from the trailer, we will still get to some of her. Prayers to Marysol and Mama Elsa.
