Michael, also affectionately known as “Michael the Butler,” suffered a life-altering spinal cord stroke in February which reportedly left him paralyzed. Since then, he’s been receiving extreme physical therapy in a rehabilitation center as the 67-year-old still has a very long road to recovery.
On June 28, Patricia took to Instagram to let fans know how Michael has been doing after her son and fellow Southern Charm co-star, Whitney Sudler Smith, paid him a visit.
“[Whitney] had a great visit with [Michael] in Atlanta today,” she wrote, alongside a photo of Whitney crouched down beside Michael in his wheelchair. “He’s got ‘an indomitable spirit’ and is working hard with his physical therapy. You can still send messages to Michael Kelcourse at [Caring Bridge Official].
Back in April, Patricia revealed that the beloved butler had made many great friends while at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia, but went on to share that he would be transported to an assisted living facility in order to continue his therapy.
Fortunately, it seems all of Michael’s hard work has paid off as he also offered an update on his progress in the comments section of one of Patricia’s Instagram posts.
“[Michael] how are you?” a fan asked while tagging him in the comment.
“Getting stronger every day,” he responded. “Got movement in both legs. Praise God!”
Michael then mentioned his “struggle” after another fan said they’re “happy” to hear he’s doing well.
“The daily struggle is paying off. Legs both recovering,” he wrote.
