CBS 21 anchor Rob Hanrahan tweeted for the first time on Friday since suffering a massive heart attack back in June.
“Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers,” Hanrahan wrote on Friday afternoon.
“An update for all: I am spending a lot of time in cardiac rehab and working on healing. Bless you all. Your prayers are working!”
The longtime and popular Harrisburg-area personality was released from the hospital on June 26 after suffering a massive heart attack on June 18. Upon returning home, he wrote the following message on Facebook:
“From the precipice of death, today came rather unexpectedly. With all your prayers and love, the fantastic cardiology and other teams at UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg hospital (more on them later), I am able to report that I have been released from the hospital to recover at home with my loving family.
“The last week or so have been the most challenging of my life. Last Wednesday morning I suffered a massive heart attack. Through [divine] intervention I was already at the hospital when my heart stopped the first time but the second time I ‘coded blue’ things weren’t looking good.
“After five stents and two surgeries I am now venturing down what will be a long cognitive, emotional and physical recovery. Your support, well wishes and prayers pulled me through. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. (more on that later, too.)
Much Love, Robb”
According to previous PennLive reporting:
“Robb Hanrahan, 58, had been in the intensive care unit since having a massive heart attack on June 18. He underwent two successful surgeries, and on June 22 his breathing tube was removed, his wife said via Twitter.
“He has been with CBS 21 WHP TV since 2010.”
