Ashley Martson Returns Home After Kidney Failure, Sends Message to Fans
Ashley Martson is back at home after a very serious health scare.
As previously reported, the 90 Day Fiance star was found unresponsive at her home a week ago, prompting an emergency hospital visit due to her kidneys failing.
This was a result of Martson having been diagnosed with Lupus, an auto-immune disease that can damage various parts of the body.
(Selena Gomez, for example, also suffers from Lupus and actually underwent a kidney transplant in 2017 as a result.)
On Saturday, however, Martson provided fans with an update on her condition, confirming she was resting comfortably at home and thanking anyone who donated to her GoFundMe campaign.
(As of this writing, the campaign, meant to cover Ashley’s “unexpected medical costs and loss of income,” had raised $ 3,860.)
“I am so thankful for your help and kind hearts,” the reality star wrote on Instagram over the weekend, continuing as follows:
“You guys are truly a blessing and I will forever be grateful for each of you. All the cards and care packages sent made me smile and tear up at the same time.
“Sometimes I loose [sic] faith in humanity but you all reminded me that there still is kind and compassionate people in this world.
“Thank you again from the Bottom of my heart.”
Concluded Martson in this message:
I will continue to be open about my battle with lupus and if you don’t like it or feel I’m seeking attention then kindly unfollow.
This disease is horrible and I want everyone that is going through it to know they’re not alone.
Martson, who previously was in the news because her husband admitted to cheating on her as soon as the couple got married, originally broke the news of her hospitalization via a photo of herself in very bad shape.
She was open and honest at the time by writing:
I’m sorry if this photo offends anyone but I will not hide that I’m sick. If I can help one person with lupus then posting this is worth it. I was found unresponsive this morning at my home.
The Ambulance took me to the hospital where it was found that I am in acute kidney failure due to lupus. I will begin dialysis shortly. I will not let this beat me.
I know I’m strong enough to battle through this,not just for myself but for my kids. I will be transferred to another hospital this evening that is better equipped.
Please pray for myself and my family as I know it’s going to be a very tough road ahead for all of us. Thank you for your continuous support and prayers
Despite her recent operation, though, the TLC personality is determined to live her regular life again.
“Finding the strength to get out of bed and get to my daughters game is rough,” she wrote on Instagram Stories on Sunday, January 20. “I will not miss her game no matter what!”
Will Martson need to undergo a kidney transplant at some point? It’s possible.
For now, she simply went through dialysis in the hopes this procedure would help the kidneys repair themselves.
Jay Smith, who has definitely been disloyal to his wife and who appears to suck in most aspects of life, did rush to be by her side in the hospital, however.
He also publicized this effort.
“I may have hurt you. I may have not been a good husband. Jumping on a plane the second I found out you was in the hospital was something I didn’t even think twice to do,” Smth wrote on social media last week, adding:
“We have our differences but as long as I have life I will never let you sit alone and suffer. I love you and nothing will ever change that. Thank you for having me here to support you.”
We wish Ashley Martson the best.
