Around this time last year, “The Kardashians” reality star rushed her husband to the West Hills Hospital and Medical Center only a few months after they tied the knot. Things took a turn for the worse and he was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles by ambulance.

In July 2022, he took to his Instagram Stories to explain what went wrong and thank fans for their support. “I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since,” he wrote at the time.

“During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube,” he explained. “This resulted in severe life threatening pancreatitis.”

“I am so very, very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better,” he concluded. “Thank you God, I love you God.”

“I am so grateful to God for healing my husband, for all of your prayers for him and for us, for the overwhelming outpouring of love and support. I am so touched and appreciative,” she wrote, adding, “I am so, so thankful to our specialists, doctors, and nurses at Cedars Sinai for taking such wonderful care of my husband and me during our stay.”

“It’s crazy how sometimes words could never truly express the gratitude or feelings I have inside of me,” she wrote in a separate slide.

“Language and voice carry energy but your heart is more powerful,” she later added. “What your heart and soul feel goes beyond a small combination of letters. I love Rumi’s quote ‘I closed my eyes and spoke with you in a thousand silent ways.’”
