Snoop Dogg gave an update on his daughter Cori Broadus‘ health this week after the 24-year-old revealed that she’d suffered a “severe stroke” last week. The rapper, 52, spoke to People magazine about Cori’s recovery from her Jan. 18 stroke, telling the magazine that she is “doing a little bit better.”
Asked if the health scare put his life in perspective, the hip-hop veteran said, “Yeah, yeah. Something like that.”
In an Instagram Story from her hospital bed posted on Tuesday (Jan. 23), Cori Broadus wrote, “they took me off heaprin tonight (blood thinner) & most likely can go home tomorrow,” followed by a second message in which she said, “thank you thank you [crying face emoji] when I get out I’m going to share everything more in depth.” She also swung her phone’s camera around to show off the many flower arrangements in her room.
She narrated the video, saying, “I just want to thank everyone single person that has sent me flowers… I mean, like, thank you so, so much. I really, really appreciate all the love and support, it’s been keeping me going in here, like for real.” The Story also included a slide of Broadus passing the time playing Uno and rolling through the hospital on a gurney on her way to get a CT scan of her chest to determine the cause of her stroke.
Last Thursday, Cori posted a Story from her hospital bed in which she wrote, “I had a severe stroke this am. I started breaking down crying when they told me,” later adding, “I’m only 24. What did I do in my past to deserve all of this?”
Broadus was diagnosed with lupus when she was six-years-old, and, according to Lupus Corner, “the risk of stroke is 4-times to 8-times higher in lupus patients, due to inflammation influencing the tendency of blood to clot and vasculitis stiffening the blood vessels; at press time it was still not what caused Broadus’ stroke.
