From what Ive gathered

Update #1 6:25pm June 4, 2015

Nichelle Nichols has had both a CAT scan and an MRI today. The CAT scan came back negative and we are awaiting the results from the MRI. Currently she is awake, eating, in good spirits and able to have full conversations. Her right side has shown minor signs or mobility loss but she is not showing any signs of paralyses.

We greatly appreciate all of the love and support her fans are showing at this time.

I heard she is doing wonderfully.

She said she doesn't remember what happened and that not remembering was a coping mechanism for her. Or denial is coping.

Damn...I hope she is doing well.

Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek's legendary Uhura, is recovering from her recent stroke -- and she's doing so at warp speed. The actress gave her millions of fans worldwide a scare after being hospitalized on June 3, but she's already back home, undergoing physical therapy and she even granted an interview toEntertainment Tonight that aired on Monday.


"I am feeling the best that I've felt in a very long time," Nichols said, smiling broadly. "I have this thing about so-called sickness. I can't say it about everything, but I've always felt, since I was a little girl, that if you deny it, it will go away. And it does."


{I don't know about that, but since she's 80+ and I'm not I think she would know}

I'm not a Trekkie but I love how her character broke some boundaries and made people feel uncomfortable back in the day.
