Robertson, the 87-year-old founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, appeared on The 700 Club Monday to thank people for their love and concern, and to also express gratitude for a "miraculous healing."
"Pat" Robertson returns to The 700 Club today, ten days after sustaining an embolic stroke.
On Friday, February 2, the 87-year-old Dr. Robertson was admitted to Sentara Norfolk General after a family member recognized the onset of stroke.
He was administered tPA, which is a clot-busting drug. Dr. Robertson was awake and responsive and able to move all of his limbs. He returned home on Sunday, February 4.
That drug, referred to as "tPA," has saved lives and reduced long-term effects of strokes of people across the globe when promptly administered.
Dr. Robertson said, "I am grateful for the expressions of love and concern that have come toward me from all around the world, and I am thankful that I have received what amounted to a miraculous healing instead of what could have been a crippling illness. I am delighted to be back on the air to fulfill my life calling."
