Well his wife says that the Open Season star couldn’t be doing better.

“He’s sort of got through it all, touch wood, and his Parkinson’s is very slow-moving,” Pamela Stephenson-Connolly told AAP in Sydney on Monday.

“He’s probably had it for 10 years, but he’s got one of those forms that is very slowly advancing, it’s not too awful.”

It was last September when he received the news just two days after he got hearing aids.

But after his prostate was surgically removed the next month, and following another scare with a life-threatening blood clot, the 71-year-old was given the all-clear in December.

He was also informed his Parkinson’s was a mild, slow-moving form which needed no medication.

“He’s come through and out the other side of this stuff,” Stephenson-Connolly said.

“He’s been really funny about the Parkinson’s, really funny about the prostate cancer.”

Stephenson-Connolly, has revealed that Connolly’s health issues have gifted him a glut of fresh comedy material to work with, including how his cancer was found via a

“routine finger up the bum test”.

Although there has been a positive outcome Stephenson said it had been a difficult time for the couple’s entire family.

“I mean you know that people aren’t going to stay healthy and young forever, so you always know that there’s always the possibility that someone’s gonna get sick,” she said.

”It wasn’t a slow and gentle descent into depression. Something totally switches in your mind. I’m still trying to work out what’s wrong with me now.”

Also when her mother died in 2000 of an accidental heroin overdose, she resorted to drugs and alcohol. She also says that she had never spoke to father about how she felt and when she is once again struggling she turns to her friends. She explained to the Daily Mail newspaper

: ”I never expressly told my parents. Dad doesn’t know. I wouldn’t talk to him about it now. I don’t have that relationship with my family. I lean on my friends a lot more. We are a close family, but I have a different relationship with them than my friends.”
Also Fifi lost her twenty five year old sister Peaches in April also of an accidental drug overdose, she says this left a hole in her soul. She said:

”Peaches’ death is like a piece of me that has been taken. A piece of my heart and my soul has gone. She was my baby sister. She knew more than anyone else in the family. Peaches and I were quite similar, mostly in our feelings about stuff that went on that we bonded over. She loved books and reading. We were both quite cynical in our outlook of the world.”
