FAIRHOPE, Ala. — RV blogger and podcaster Kathy Huggins, who with her husband, John, produce Living The RV Dream, remains in critical condition after emergency surgery this weekend.
Kathy began complaining about severe abdominal pain Friday night, and she was transported to Thomas Hospital in Fairhope, Ala. Doctors there discovered a hernia which impeded blood flow to her upper intestines. Surgeons removed 95 percent of her small intestines.
John Huggins told RV Daily Report that Kathy is in critical condition in the intensive care unit at Thomas Hospital, and on ventilator support. When she is awake, she can recognize those around her and squeeze their hands, which he said is encouraging.
Both of the Huggins’ sons have arrived at the hospital.
