Two and a Half Men star Conchata Ferrell in 'long-term care facility after suffering heart attack and kidney infection'
TWO and a Half Men star Conchata Ferrell is in the battle for her life and moved to a long-term facility after suffering a heart attack.
The actress, 77, who played housekeeper Berta on the record breaking sitcom has been battling health issues since last year.
She was hospitalized in December due to a life-threatening kidney and blood infection.
While in the ICU for four weeks she suffered the cardiac arrest, TMZ has claimed.
Her husband of 40 years, Arnie Anderson confirmed Conchata had been moved from her home to the facility.
The family was now playing the waiting game to see if she would recover.
He told TMZ: "It's going to be a while before there's any recovery. It's all neurological.
"There's nothing we can do to speed it up the process. We are hoping for the best."
Conchata is receiving treatment in the respiratory unit of the center but despite being "stable and semi-conscious" she cannot speak and is only "semi-aware" of her surroundings.
Safety precautions due to the coronavirus pandemic mean Arnie cannot visit his wife, but speaks to her nurse daily.

The actress was bedridden at home and despite undergoing physical therapy several times a day could not get onto her feet.
A source told the site that her family was by her side through the process, with her husband, Arnie Anderson, stepping up to the plate when she needed him.
