"My surgery was a success!! I can't wait to be back on my feet 100%! Glad it's over!" ZolciakĀ captioned a selfie from her hospital bed.

"Quite the whirlwind this last month has been...but such a blessing too."

Via hashtags, Zolciak added that "God is incredible" and that her family has been "so supportive."

Zolciak suffered a small stroke last month, which prompted an evaluation from doctors and the discovery that Zolciak had a heart condition.

"It was a blessing in disguise," Zolciak told Good Morning America on October 9, regarding the diagnosis.

"The minor TIA revealed that I have a PFO, which is like a hole in your heart. I was born with it and it never closed. That's what caused it, basically."

Zolciak had said previously that she planned on playing a role on the Dancing with the Stars finale, but her status for that series is now unclear.

The mother of six has far more pressing issues to deal with in the near future.
