Five-time Olympic medalist Mary Lou Retton is back at home after her family revealed earlier this month that the gymnastics icon was “fighting for her life” after suffering from a rare form of pneumonia.
McKenna Kelley, one of Retton’s daughters, shared the update on social media Monday, adding that Retton is now in “recovery mode.”
“Mom is HOME and in recovery mode. We still have a long road of recovery ahead of us, but baby steps,” she wrote in the post on Instagram.
“We are overwhelmed with the love and support from everyone. Grateful doesn’t scrape the surface of the posture of our hearts.”
She continued, “Thank you Jesus, thank you doctors and nurses, thank you to this loving community of support.”
