Nate Dogg Stable after Second Stroke

9/16/2008 5:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned hip-hop legend Nate Dogg is still hangin' on after suffering a stroke 11 days ago -- his second in the last year.

We're told Nate is in stable condition in a hospital ward, but is using an assisted breathing tube -- which is not required but makes breathing easier for him. Despite other reports, Dogg, who is currently sedated, did NOT suffer any brain damage.

According to our sources it's too early to tell how this stroke will impact the use of his limbs (his arm and leg were affected from the first stroke) -- but there isn't much movement below his neck at this time.

Nate's due in court on the 24th to face felony charges after he allegedly made death threats to his estranged wife.

I remember you from the 90's, when West Coast rappers were in their prime. I am hoping for a full recovery, Nate. Take care of yourself, please!

I truly hope Nate gets better.
If you only know a person from what you read on the internet, or see on TV, then you really have no right to judge that person. For all of you out there that think you are funny by posting hateful negative comments, your day will come when you need people to lift you up and not kick you while you are down,

Nate Dogg may not be a role model but finding anything funny about his condition says that you arent either.

Remembering that there but for the grace of God go I is a good idea.

I pray for strength for Nate Dogg, his family and friends and that all of you that think that this situation is a joking matter remember that it could very well be you.

Pray cause it does changes things    

To all the people that have spoken unkindly about Nate. Just a word of advise if you don't have nothing nice to say please don't say nothing at all. All it does shows your up bringing regardless of what he did in the past God surely Forgives and also Heals so remember when or if you are ever faced with a situation like this read the word: Isaia 53:4-6

I will be praying for you and your family. Keep the Faith and you will get better.

Hope he'll get better soon. And what's all that fuss with prayers? There is no God. He has to fight with the condition by himself. But I'm counting on him, without him there will be no 213, only 1 and 3 :(

Nate's Thankful and forgiving Sister    

I am Nate's sister, same dad and mom. Same blood running through my veins. I find it quite amazing that so many cruel people can say the things about my brother and his condition and think that makes them any better than the things my brother may have done. Actually, many of you are only going on what you've heard and we all know lies don't spread. Yeah right. For those of you who send your prayers and well wishes to my family and my brother, thank you and God bless you. For the rest who are saying the mean hateful things, just remember you will reap what you sow. I forgive you for your insensitivity that we, my mother included, could read some of your heartless statements.

For those who do pray to the one and only true God, Jehovah, continue to pray for his healing and restoration and another chance to do live the life God created him to live.

Geez, people dont show compassion for anyone anymore? Well I enjoy his music and I hope he gets better. Poor guy, he's so young. Two strokes in one year? That sucks for anyone.

This is sad. If he's on a ventilator his condition is obviously serious enough to where he cant breath on his own. He's not even 40. If you like him or not at least have some compassion for him as a person. So many mean comments. but did any of you making the rude comments know he served in the military (Marines). If you dont like him, at least have respect for him for having the courage to serve our country, which is what im sure alot of you would not of had the balls or bravery to do. I've never heard anything negative in the press that he's done except for the incident with his girlfriend/wife a few months back and we've all had drama in our relationships were just not famous for them to be exposed.
Nate D O double G, hope you get better soon.
