FORMER Generations actress Connie Ferguson has revealed that her husband, Shona, is back at home after a two-night stay in hospital with pneumonia.
Connie, best known for playing Karabo Moroka in Generations for some sixteen years, on Monday last week tweeted that her husband had been admitted to hospital, but he thankfully got better and is now recovering at home.
Speaking to YOU magazine, Connie explained that the Ferguson house has been bombarded with stubborn germs this winter.
“I’m relieved that he is back home. I don’t like hospitals much and would prefer if he could just be treated at home, where he is more comfortable,” she said.
“In our household alone it started off with our daughter Alicia who became ill with tonsillitis and bronchitis, then Shona who got bronchitis and later, Lesedi who also got bronchitis and now I have it too. Shona is the only one who got worse and developed pneumonia but he is much better now.
“Thanks so much to everyone for their prayers, we truly appreciate it. People need to take care and not take winter for granted, dress warmly and don’t take any cough or tight chest lightly because even the hospitals are full with ill patients, just getting a bed can be a challenge.”
Connie also expressed her gratitude to all the concerned fans online when she on Wednesday tweeted: “Thank u Tweeps 4 your prayers. By HIS Grace hubby @Shona_Fergosn has been discharged and will be recovering at home. Bless u!”
Also a renowned actor, Shona Ferguson is known for his roles as Dr Leabua in Muvhango and Alex Phiri in Scandal!
The couple also co-own a production company called Ferguson Films, which is responsible for hit TV drama Rockville that they also star in.
Connie and Shona have, however, been working tirelessly on a film called Step Up to a Start, which stars the likes of Khanya Mkangisa (Asanda on Zone 14), Wandile Molebasi (Blessing in The Wild) and Kagiso Modupe (Mangi on Scandal!). – entertainment.howzit.msn.com
