Frankie Muniz is truly celebrating life as he turns 27 today.
The former “Malcolm in the Middle” star is recovering from a “mini-stroke” he had last Friday, and he told “Good Morning America” Wednesday that he’s still trying to understand the health scare.
A visit to the hospital revealed that Muniz had suffered a “mini-stroke,” “which was not fun at all,” he tweeted Tuesday. “Have to start taking care of my body!”
At the time, Muniz remembered recognizing that “Something wasn’t right, I knew I did not feel right. I couldn’t say words, and I thought I was saying them, and my fianceé was looking at me like I was speaking a foreign language.”
The actor, who now plays drums with the band Kingsfoil, thought a stressful lifestyle might have been a factor.
“I’ve literally to this day, never had a sip of alcohol in my life. I’ve never had any drugs, I’ve never even smoked a cigarette,” Muniz said. Although he feels like he’s recovered mentally, physically he’s still healing.
“I can’t get a deep breath in,” he told “GMA.” “I’m still trying to make sense of it, but happy that I’m alive.”
