Jennifer Aniston's mother, Nancy Dow, was reportedly hospitalized last week after suffering from her second stroke in the past 15 months.
"Last week on Wednesday or Thursday, her mom had another stroke. This was her second one in a year," a source close to Dow was quoted by Celebuzz.
The 76-year-old suffered from a serious stroke in 2011 and has dealt with various injuries as well. She broke a bone in her hip, bruised her shoulder and now has limited movement. The effects of her original stroke now require her to have 24-hour care.
The source close to Dow said that this stroke was minor compared to the one she suffered from last year saying, "She went to the hospital, but she’s already back home. But she’s having trouble talking and is still shuffling around."
Despite her rocky relationship with her mother, Aniston is reportedly still paying Dow's medical bills, according to Entertainmentwise.
"Jennifer is paying her medical bills... So she’s involved to an extent in her mom’s life and well-being, and they’re getting friendlier than years ago," the source continued.
Aniston and her fiance, Justin Theroux, also reportedly visited Dow together last year in September when she was in the hospital. There have been reports that Dow will be invited to their wedding as well.
And although she suffered a minor stroke this time, Dow's family is still worried about her and fear "it may not be long until a bigger stroke comes along."
