Earlier this week, it was reported that Ray J and Brandy's mother Sonja Norwood was hospitalized after having a bad reaction to at-home IV therapy. TMZ shared that Norwood's IV treatment included C and B vitamins, calcium, and magnesium. According to the outlet, she started to feel light-headed after the treatment, and had to lay down due to rapid breathing. Ray J and other family members then decided to call an ambulance, and Norwood was taken to a nearby hospital.

Now, she's shared an eagerly-anticipated update with supporters on Facebook, revealing that the health scare was nothing too serious. “I don’t usually address stories about myself," she began. "But I was quite surprised to wake up to a call from a long-time friend/publicist asking, ‘Sonja, are you in the hospital, and are you okay?’ ‘What? Where is that coming from?’ I asked."

“There was a TMZ story that I was not aware of," Norwood continued. "She sent the link, and when I looked at it, I frowned and said, ‘That was weeks ago.’ And, ‘They could have gotten my age right.’ Then the floodgates of concerns just took over my phone. I had no idea the responses would be so huge to the point I couldn’t address them one by one, so I felt the need to say something publicly.” She went on, assuring fans that she's doing well now that she's back at home. “Thank God I am not in the hospital. I’m doing great! I did have a negative reaction to an IV VITAMIN Therapy WEEKS AGO! It was not a big deal. I went to the hospital and got a big Grade A on my medical reports," she explained.

“It’s known that I seek medical attention if there could be a potential health issue at my age," she added. "That is about it! Nothing more or less! You guys are the best! [heart emojis]. Don’t be mad with TMZ.” What do you think of Sonja Norwood's health update following her recent hospitalization?
