Earlier this week, we reported the news of NeNe Leakes asking followers and fans to pray for her husband Gregg Leakes as he underwent surgery to treat his battle with cancer. And today, NeNe shared an update through People.

Leakes just underwent a 5-hour surgery Monday and was recovering as of yesterday. NeNe went public with Gregg’s health diagnosis in June revealing that he had cancer. The type of cancer has been kept private for a while.

Later, she posted on her Instagram Live showing Gregg in a hospital bed, being wheeled into his room after surgery where his family and friends were waiting. NeNe said, “The hard part if over. Now it’s time to heal. Gregg is doing really, really well.” She asked for no visitors on Wednesday so that he have time to “reset and get himself together.”

NeNe said, “His surgery was very long-longer than we expected. He came out of surgery about 7:45 p.m. last night. He’s doing really good. He looked amazing when he came out of surgery, actually. He looked really, really good. Today he’s really, really, really, really sore, so he’s not doing much of anything,” she continued, explaining that he was still getting fluids through an IV. “He’s super sore. … Other than that, he’s doing really, really well.”

Gregg is expected to remain in the hospital until he can start moving around on his own. “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.”

In the meantime, Leakes bought items to make Gregg’s stay more comfortable.

“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 took time to thank Cynthia and Marlo for helping her shop for her husband.

“I have to thank Marlo and Cynthia for holding me down yesterday the whole day. And I know Gregg thanked them as well.”

“We can’t pick our family but friends are special people! Cynthia and Marlo you showed the definition of a real FRIEND yesterday! From Marlo decorating Gregg’s hospital room to Cynthia helping Gregg sip water from a cup! You both provided love, laughs and comfort all while driving me crazy to having Gregg put us out his room😂 No matter what, I want to say THANK YOU! It feels good to have friends like you around in a time of need. It meant a lot and i will never forget it ❤️”

NeNe also thanked fans for their prayers.

“I need all the prayers I can get,” she said. Gregg and I as a couple, we’ve literally been through everything a couple could possibly go through. The key word is through, because we got through it. I just don’t think there’s anything that Gregg and I haven’t been through. … We’ve experienced it. At a time like this, this is when you really have to think back to the vows you took. Sickness and health… these vows are really showing up right now,” she said.
