1000-LB Sisters star Tammy Slaton has detailed the terrifying moments of a health shock that landed her in the emergency room.
In a new teaser clip for the TLC show, Tammy, 36, recounts the time she blacked out and woke up in hospital on life support.
In the clip posted to Instagram, Tammy admits, “I don’t remember any of that. Nothing. I passed out completely.”
In a confessional, Tammy explains that she decided to go back into rehab almost 10 months ago after weighing the highest weight she has ever weighed – 717 pounds.
“I was here maybe less than 30 minutes and my oxygen levels were dropping. I had to be taken to the hospital. They put me in a medically induced coma,” Tammy explained.
The reality star has since spent almost a year turning her life around and now looks completely unrecognizable.
ON THE RIGHT WAY
Tammy’s new husband, Caleb Willingham, recently shared a video of her hard at the gym.
In the TikTok video, Tammy, 36, was seen in her wheelchair, sitting with her arms out in front of an aerobic machine.
While hooked up to an oxygen tank, Tammy belted out a song demonstrating the exercise.
Caleb captioned the video: “My ANGEL hard at work!”
