Beth Chapman is fighting for her life in the hospital, and her family is hoping for a miracle while they sit by her bedside.
Sources directly connected to Dog and Beth tell The Blast the situation is “touch and go” as Chapman remains in a medically induced coma at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Over the weekend, the star of CMT’s “Dog’s Most Wanted” experienced a choking incident at her home when she was unable to “catch her breath.” 911 was called and Beth was rushed to the hospital.
We’re told doctors felt the need to place her in a medically induced coma to allow her body to recover from the traumatic medical emergency.
A ventilation tube was also inserted at the time to help with Beth’s breathing. We’re told doctors continue to treat her with oxygen as the family wants to make her as “comfortable as possible” while they pray for a recovery.
Over the weekend, Dog the Bounty Hunter asked for “prayers” for Beth, as he sat by her side at the hospital. We’re told the entire family is now with her while she remains sedated.
Bonnie Chapman, Beth’s daughter, also gave a small update to fans, explaining, “There’s not much of an update I can give, I can say she’s getting good care. I know you guys wanted more, but y’know it’s a coma, much much [sic] can be updated.”
As The Blast first reported, Beth Chapman originally underwent surgery in September 2017 to remove a plum-sized tumor from her neck. She had previously said she was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer.
Two months later, Dog revealed she was cancer-free during an episode of “Dog & Beth: Fight of Their Lives.”
“There is a God. This could be a miracle. This could be a healing,” he said during the show. “[The doctor] said if I wasn’t such a good husband, it wouldn’t have worked out that great. Oh, I can breathe. Beth Chapman, you did it.”
In late 2018, Beth learned her cancer had returned and she underwent emergency throat surgery after doctors discovered a large blockage in her throat.
Beth was also hospitalized briefly in April after the reality star had trouble breathing. At the time, a rep for the Chapmans told The Blast, “Beth was hospitalized Saturday due to an accumulation of fluid in her lungs. Doctors performed an emergency procedure to alleviate pressure that had built up.”
Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you
