Sharon Stone is sharing some positive updates on her mom’s health battle.
Last week, the actress asked fans for prayers after 88-year-old Dorothy Stone suffered an acute stroke.
Andie MacDowell and Katie Couric were among those who sent well-wishes beneath the post.
The “Basic Instinct” star took to Instagram to share some better news over the weekend.
“No one puts mommy in the corner. From unresponsive to this in three days,” she wrote, while sharing a photograph of her mother sitting up in her hospital room.
In a second post, Stone thanked one of the nurses who helped save her mom.
Stone also shared a photo of her mother’s writing therapy.
Fans of the 63-year-old Oscar nominee are aware that Stone herself suffered a serious stroke back in 2001, an experience that ultimately led her to become an advocate for brain-aging diseases that predominantly affect older women.
“This is why I do it: My mother had a stroke. My grandmother had a stroke. I had a massive stroke — and a nine-day brain bleed,” she told Variety at a 2019 event she hosted to raise awareness for the Women’s Brain Health Initiative.
“People treated me in a way that was brutally unkind,” she said, adding, “From other women in my own business to the female judge who handled my custody case, I don’t think anyone grasps how dangerous a stroke is for women and what it takes to recover — it took me about seven years.”
