California Man Is The First In United States To Receive A Living Lung!

Filed under: InspirationHealthScience!

Wowzers!

Fernando Padilla recently suffered the unfortunate disease, Pulmonary Fibrosis, which scars and thickens the lungs without a known cause.

But because of the new technology that offers a transplant of an actual LIVING LUNG, the long time construction worker was saved and relieved from his oxygen tank.

That's cray!

In the video (above) UCLA Dr. Abbas Ardehali explains how the procedure goes down, and we must say, it's rather amusing!!

Ch-ch-check it out!!

A Defect In Martin Short's Wife's Oxygen Tank May Have Contributed To Her Death

An oxygen tank malfunction may have possibly contributed to the death of Martin Short's wife Nancy Dolman.

Dolman, 58, who was suffering from cancer since 2007, passed away last week.

In the 911 call right before her death, a woman can be heard saying that the bed-ridden Nancy "is not breathing" and "she's going to die," before requesting an ambulance.

The woman goes on to tell the 911 operator that "This patient… was on oxygen, we had problems with the gauge here in the tank, she’s off oxygen."

At the time of her death, the woman said that Nancy was surrounded by people.

So sad.

Martin has been nominated for an Emmy for his role in the FX show Damages, but will not be in attendance at Sunday night's awards show.

We wish him and his family the best.
