Nancy Grace was released from the hospital yesterday after being admitted for complications from pulmonary edema. Grace gave birth to twins John David and Lucy Elizabeth on November 4th – two months early. After she was initially discharged from the hospital, Grace and her husband David Linch returned that night to visit the babies. While there she had severe shortness of breath and was examined by doctors, who said she was fine and sent her home. However her condition steadily declined until she could barely breathe by this past Sunday. She was admitted to the hospital, where an X-ray and CAT scan found some blood clots and fluid in her lungs. She was admitted to the hospital for monitoring and given medication.
Nancy Grace was released from the hospital on Thursday after checking in over the weekend due to complications from giving birth prematurely to twins on Nov. 4.
According to the CNN Headline News anchor’s rep, Grace’s condition is “much improved and she’s on the mend,” she tells PEOPLE.
Grace, 48, is currently at her Atlanta home with husband David Linch. The twins, John David and Lucy Elizabeth, remain under a doctor’s care. “‘Home’ is merely a word,” says Grace’s rep. “Nancy and David are spending all their time visiting the twins at the hospital.”
According to the rep, “Nancy hopes to bring the babies home for Thanksgiving. They have so much to be grateful for.”
The twins are doing much better as well. John David weighed 5 lbs., 1 oz. at birth and Lucy Elizabeth weighed 2 lbs., 15 oz. Both of them are doing well and have put on weight. Linch told People that John David was initially being fed through a tube and is now being fed by a bottle. Lucy is nearly ready for bottles as well. “They’re out of the critical area and have stabilized pretty well.” Some have noted that perhaps pregnancy will soften Nancy Grace a bit. She’s sure had a rough initiation into motherhood, hopefully things will look up for her from here.
