As noted by People, she later did an Instagram Live, showing Gregg’s hospital bed being wheeled into his room after surgery, where his family and friends were waiting. “The hard part is over,” NeNe said. “Now it’s time to heal.”
Back at home on Tuesday, she posted another Instagram Live saying that “Gregg is doing really, really well” but asked for no visitors on Wednesday so he could “reset and get himself together.”
Gregg, 64, is expected to remain in the hospital “until he can get up and start moving around,” NeNe said. “I’m thinking he will probably be there the week. Hopefully sooner he can come home. … Keep praying for Gregg. He’s going to be home soon.”
NeNe and Marlo hit up T.J. Maxx to get Gregg a pillow and ended up buying “a whole lot of stuff.”
“We showed all the way out,” she joked. “We ended up buying Gregg a rug for his bathroom, towels, hand cloths… We were just trying to make him feel good because Gregg doesn’t want any flowers. So we’re doing balloons and other stuff to decorate his room to make him feel like he can be a little more comfortable.”
NeNe also posted a gallery of photos of them all on Instagram, writing:
