Hawaii News Now revealed that Beth Chapman has been admitted to the ICU at a local Hawaiian hospital and has been put into a medically-induced coma, a fact the family confirmed in a statement to the news station.
Beth has had several health battles in the last couple of years and in 2017 had a surgery to remove throat cancer. Last year, doctors said the cancer had returned and she was rushed into emergency surgery to remove a tumor from her throat in November 2018.
Now, Dog has taken to the social media site again and shared a photo of his wife in her hospital bed, presumably while still in the coma.
According to TMZ, Beth was placed in the coma because doctors thought it best for her own health. The site states that she was struggling with keeping her IV lines and medications attached to her and several other methods didn’t work.
