Larry King: health alarm

Larry King had a very tough year as the beloved CNN host experienced severe health issues. Larry suffered a stroke in March and spent several weeks in a coma.

The host said he had trouble walking after the health scare and even a partial memory loss.

I had a stroke. Everything got better except for my left foot, and I have been rehabbing that every day, and they tell me I’ll be walking by Christmas.

Larry added:

It’s been a rough year, I don’t remember anything since March.

The host had a stroke just a month after another health emergency. King underwent heart surgery.

Larry joked about his health issues:

My head doctor said I have an incomparable spirit.
