Another dramatic day for Michael Jackson's family.

Patriarch Joe Jackson is recovering at a Las Vegas hospital after suffering a mild stroke this morning, his third in five years, E! News has confirmed. 

A source says that the prognosis for Jackson, 83, is good and that his stroke was not life-threatening.

While he and Katherine Jackson are still married (Nov. 5 was their 63rd anniversary), Joe keeps a home in Las Vegas while Katherine's permanent residence remains the family compound in Calabasas, Calif.

Calls to family reps were not immediately returned.
