Nancy Pelosi Speaks on husband’s Recovery ‘It will take a while for him to return to normal.’

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi discussed her husband Paul’s recovery from a violent attack last year, saying that while he is “doing OK,” it will “take a little while for him to be back to normal.”

Nancy Pelosi made the remarks during an interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace on “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace,” which is now available on HBO Max and will air on CNN on Sunday night at 7 p.m. ET. The California Democrat said her husband is “very strong,” but the incident has been “very sad for our family” and that they must take things “one day at a time.”

According to court documents, Paul Pelosi was attacked with a hammer in October at the couple’s home in San Francisco by a male assailant looking for the House speaker. Paul Pelosi underwent surgery “to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands,” Nancy Pelosi’s spokesman said in a statement after the incident.

“I’m very sad because of what happened, but I’m even more sad because the person was looking for me,” Nancy Pelosi told Wallace. “My dear husband, who isn’t even that political in the first place, paid the price.”

In December, Paul Pelosi made his first public appearance since the attack at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, DC.

“He’s been out a little bit because the doctor said he needs something to look forward to, and so, again, one day at a time,” Nancy Pelosi explained.

“He had wounds and all the rest in that on his body,” she said, elaborating on her husband’s condition and recovery. Those took time to heal, but they did. Tendons, you know what I’m talking about. But the head is something else.”

“Anyone who’s had a head injury knows you have to be extremely cautious,” the former speaker continued. “You must exercise caution when moving. You must be cautious of light. You must exercise caution when it comes to sound. And it simply takes time. You get very tired, but, you know, without going into too much detail, it takes, according to the doctors, another three or four months for him to be truly himself.”
