Beloved US TV star Dick Van Patten is recovering after suffering a stroke.
The 77-year-old EIGHT IS ENOUGH star was taken to Cedar Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles last month (JAN06) after suffering a diabetic stroke, but the fun-loving actor is already bouncing back from the health crisis.
Van Patten, who suffers from Type 2 diabetes, sustained some speech impairment and paralysis from the stroke, but he's already well on the way to making a full recovery.
He says, "I thank my lucky stars that my stroke wasn't that bad. I could have easily died.
"What happened was I eat desserts and I'm not supposed to - I cheated. Then my blood sugar level suddenly shot up to a dangerously high level."
The mystery woman will be receiving some ‘freshly picked flowers’ from the Irish actor this Valentines Day.
