The 35-year-old had reportedly suffered a dozen strokes towards the beginning of his time in medical care. An insider explains that the ailing athlete has been getting better, but not without setbacks along the way:

"It's two steps forward, then a step back, but it does feel like some progress is being made, little by little. There's still a black cloud, like, 'Okay, what's next?'"

Last week, the NBA forward underwent emergency surgery, which was believed to be in response to a bout of pneumonia. The source says the illness proved to be problematic for the basketball player's condition, adding:

"The pneumonia was a huge setback, and now there's worry about permanent scarring of the lungs."

The famous father had also been facing issues with his kidneys, and reports are been circulating that could need a transplant. However, the insider explains his organs aren't ready for the operation just yet:

"His kidneys are still not functioning correctly, but he's nowhere near strong enough to even think of a transplant, so he's on dialysis."

While his body parts aren't in the best shape, source reveals he has made progress as far as responsiveness is concerned:

A 36-year-old Swedish woman recently made history as she became the first person EVER to give birth after having undergoing a womb transplant!

The new mother, who wishes to remain nameless, was told she had no womb at just 15-years-old, making it impossible for her to have kids. However, doctors DID mention the possibility of a transplant, although they made it clear that nothing was guaranteed!

Poop Transplants Are REAL & The First Stool Bank Opens Its Gaping Hole, Uh, Doors In The U.S.A.!


You might be thinking after reading that headline, "What the crap? Butt…butt…butt this is gross!"

Make no mistake though! Someone else's poop may save your ass, and, well, the rest of you too! Heck, one day you might just need 150ccs…of a poopsickle?

27-year-old doctoral candidate, Mark Smith, and three colleagues launched OpenBiome, the first human stool bank in the good ole U.S.A., almost a year ago, and their hard work has not gone to waste, even if they deal in it!

Honestly, we are not being feces-tious!

The poop in question has been screened, and is used to treat patients with Clostridium difficile, a gastrointestinal infection that claims the lives of over 14,000 Americans a year.

People who have Clostridium difficile suffer a lack of good bacteria in their colon as it's usually being wiped out due to taking antibiotics. The transplant helps reinstate the healthy bacteria, which then fights the Clostridium difficile.

What a steaming pile…of success!

According to a recent study, these transplants are twice as effective as regular antibiotics, and OpenBiome keeps their preparations frozen, ready to go!

Great work, guys! Now, if you'll excuse us we have to make a trip to the bank! Ew, come on, we mean the REGULAR bank!
