Sinbad’s family gives an update on his health after his stroke
November 21st, 2022 under Sinbad. [ Comments: 9 ]

Two years ago, Sinbad, 66, suffered a stroke, but his family didn’t elaborate on how serious it was. Today, they gave an update on his condition, and it is a miracle that the comedian is still with us.

The family wrote, “On October 25, 2020, Sinbad suffered an ischemic stroke as a result of a blood clot that traveled from his heart to his brain. He was rushed into surgery at West Hills Medical Center that night where the doctor’s performed a thrombectomy to remove the clot and restore normal blood flow to the brain. After surgery, Sinbad was talking and moving with some weakness, but the prognosis was very promising. The next day, however, another blood clot formed, half the size of the first. He successfully underwent the same surgery again, but it took a little more from him than the first surgery.”

After the surgery, his brain began to swell, and they did a craniotomy. During the operation, doctors discovered a bleed in his brain. Instead of waking him up post-op, they put him in an induced coma and placed him on a ventilator. And that is how he spent the next several weeks.

When he finally woke up, his left side was paralyzed. He spent the next several months in rehab. And then, nearly nine months after that fateful night, he was finally sent home.

Since then, he has been getting stronger. However, all of the therapy has drained him of his savings. Therefore his family is asking for some financial help so he can continue to improve. If you would like to donate to his care, you can do so at the site that Sinbad’s family set up.

Along with asking for money, they thanked us for our prayers. He had a 30% chance of survival, and they believe “Sinbad is here because of the multitude of prayers from all who know and love him. We are eternally grateful. Every outpouring of love and the memories of how he has touched all of you have not gone unheard, unseen, or unfelt. Thank you. You have lifted his spirits along the way and inspired the entire family.”


The cast of A Different World reunite for a road trip on E!

Tomorrow night at 9p on E!, the cast of A Different World will reunite and share never before heard stories from their time on the sitcom.

Sinbad and Kadeem Hardison are joined by Darryl M. Bell, Jasmine Guy, Dawnn Lewis, and Cree Summer to talk about the impact of the series that highlighted Spellman College. We find out how hard the producers worked to make the show relevant and authentic to college life and the school. Along with the cast, we will be hearing from the show’s director and executive producer Debbie Allen and executive producer Susan Fales-Hill.

Another thing that we will hear about tomorrow is how Sinbad got cast on the sitcom. However, he almost blew his chance by telling a little lie. Thankfully, he didn’t. This was the last thing he shot before he suffered a massive stroke late last year.

Their get together is part of the four-part series event Reunion Road Trip. On next week’s series finale, the cast of Scrubs checks in on what they are doing now.


Sinbad’s family gives an update on his health since his stroke
June 16th, 2021 under Sinbad. [ Comments: none ]

Back in October, Sinbad suffered a severe stroke. His family said he would need time to recover, and he is still rehabbing from it.

Yesterday, his son, Royce, and daughter, Paige, gave an update on his health at an event held in the comedian’s honor in Tennessee. They said that the comedian was given a good prognosis after the initial stroke, he suffered another clot, and then a brain bleed days afterward in the hospital. Because of that, he required six surgeries to repair it all.

He was hoping to have been recovered by now, but he is still fighting. He might be down, but he is not out. I have a feeling he will come back stronger than he was before.

Our prayers are being answered, but we still need to do them. I met him once, and he is a truly nice guy who cares about others. I ask you to care about him in his time of need. Pray for him to continue moving forward with his recovery.

Last month, Sinbad’s family announced that the comedian suffered a stroke. Yesterday, his children Paige and Royce gave an update on his condition. “We are happy to report that he continues to recover and is getting better every single day,” his daughter said with a smile.

“We also want to thank every last one of you for your well wishes, calls, texts, cards, flowers, but especially your prayers. Gd is listening and they are working and for that we are immensely grateful,” his son added. “We ask that you please continue to stand in agreement with us for his complete healing.”

They also read a statement from their dad. “Thank Gd for everything He’s given you, even if it’s not everything you asked for. Thank Gd for family and hug the ones you love while you’re still with them. We need each other to get through this journey,” Sinbad said. “I can’t wait to see you all again soon. As always, stay funky, stay prayed up!”

Please continue to pray for him. Hopefully, he will back doing what he loves and what we love watching him do real soon. Get well, Sinbad.

Sinbad’s family shared a message about his health today, and the actor/comedian recently suffered a stroke.

“It is out of sincere love that we share Sinbad, our beloved husband and father, is recovering from a recent stroke,” the Adkins family announced in a statement. “Sinbad is a light source of love and joy for many generations. While he is beginning his road to recovery, we are faithful and optimistic that he will bring laughter into our hearts soon. Our family thanks you in advance for your love and support and ask for continued prayers for his healing. We also ask that you please respect our privacy during this time.’ Thank you.”

Today, as we pray for the 64-year-old’s speedy recovery, I also ask you to watch his hilarious sitcoms, movies, and comedy specials on streaming sites like Tubi. Maybe as we laugh with Sinbad, it will help to heal him by sending positive energy his way. We need him to get better so he can make us laugh out loud again!
