Kathy Laurinaitis, the mother of Nikki and Brie Bella and wife of John Laurinaitis, underwent successful brain surgery yesterday.
In a message on social media, Nikki said that the surgery was “very successful” and thanked fans for their prayers and words of encouragement. “Can’t wait for my Mom to see how loved she is. It’s going to mean the world to her. Now prayers for her recovery,” she wrote.
Kathy had to be operated after doctors found something similar to a tumor on her brain stem which has been paralyzing her face. Nikki also thanked the surgeons for taking care of her mother as well as her step father John for being the family’s rock. “We all couldn’t have gotten through today without you! Love you,” Nikki wrote.
Kathy will be spending the next few days in ICU before being moved for recovery.
