On Friday, May 12th, everyone's best friend and favorite MC, Big Matt Baugh, had weight loss surgery to help become Healthy, Mini Matt Baugh.
Since then, there have been numerous complications with his gastric sleeve, which has resulted in 4 ADDITIONAL surgeries, countless tests and (so far) 6 nights in the ICU at Salt Lake Regional.
At this point, his doctors are cautiously optimistic that the infections are gone, but it will still be a long road to recovery with a possibility of more surgeries and up to another two weeks in the hospital until they are comfortable sending him home. Jolene is on leave from work during this time, so she can focus 100% of her efforts on getting Matt well.
Ok folks, here's where we're asking you to help Matt and Jolene in any way you can. Matt's initial surgery was not covered by insurance and was paid for out of pocket. Insurance should help with what has happened now, but there is a possibility they won't cover it.
All donations will go directly towards Matt's medical expenses. They greatly appreciate your kind words and support during this difficult time. In true Matt Baugh fashion, he has maintained a positive attitude and is looking forward to a bright and healthy future ahead. Matt gets his energy from talking and joking with people, so if you're interested in visiting, please reach out to Jolene.
