Teresa Giudice Updates Fans On Her Father’s Illness…

Family

Teresa Giudice’s father, Giacinto Gorga, has been battling health problems and was hospitalized this winter. Teresa took to her Bravo Blog to update her fans on her father’s health. “Thank you all for your kind wishes and prayers for my dad,” Teresa wrote. “He had a rough winter with pneumonia and his pacemaker surgery, but he’s back up and around and doing great. It was very scary though, because he was really, really sick. It’s so hard to see my father, who was always such a big, strong man, so much larger than life, getting older and having health issues. I know that’s the way of life for those of us lucky to have our parents still, but it’s still hard. Nothing about watching those you love in pain is easy.”

“My dad has emphysema, so he has weak lungs,” Teresa explained. “He’s been in the hospital before, but this last time was the worst because he was in the ICU. We weren’t sure how things were going to go, and my mother and I basically camped out with him. I wasn’t going to leave his side. We were going to cancel Gia’s birthday party, but my dad didn’t want us to. He was in the hospital a week and finally got moved out of ICU, so we did go ahead with Gia’s party.”
