Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter Briana Culberson suffered a frightening health scare when she was hospitalized due to complications from lupus earlier this week. After undergoing emergency surgery, the Real Housewives of Orange County star updated fans on her daughter’s condition.
“Thank you everyone asking about Briana,” Vicki wrote on Instagram. “She is at her home in NC resting with Ryan and the boys. You are all so sweet. #LoveMyDaughter #LupusStinks.”
On Tuesday, Briana’s husband Ryan posted a pic of his wife lying in a hospital bed at UNC Health Care in North Carolina and wrote, “Please keep my wife in your thoughts and prayers! Her lupus is causing inflammation around her heart and is causing it to go in and out of irregular heart rhythms now requiring her to have a cardiac ablation.”
Ryan has since updated fans as well, and let them know Briana “is now at home resting peacefully” after “these rough couple days.” He also thanked fans for “the abundance of messages and comments.”
Ryan previously shared a pic of him and his two sons with Briana, Troy, 5, and Owen, 3, on their way to the hospital to visit Briana.
Briana’s diagnosis with lupus was revealed on the RHOC season 11 finale in 2016. “It’s been a tough year for her. She was back at the doctor on Friday. Lupus has affected part of her heart, it’s literally something every other week,” Vicki later told Page Six.
