Michael Lohan collapsed into unconsciousness and was rushed to hospital Wednesday evening. The estranged father of Lindsay Lohan was rushed to Palm Beach Gardens Hospital Emergency Ward after he passed out following complaints of light-headedness at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting he was attending. Michael, 51, left the meeting seeking fresh air when the incident occurred.
Doctors discovered a blood clot in his lung – a pulmonary embolism – the same condition which led to rapper Heavy D’s death recently. Lohan was treated with medicine designed to break down the clot according to RadarOnline. Lohan also received a CAT and MRI scan to check the clot hasn’t moved to his brain.
Lohan had a stent placed in heart to open a blocked coronary artery last month and this procedure can lead to blood clots like the one found in his lung. Lohans’ stent surgery was delayed until docs could clear up blood clots they found in his lung back then.
‘Michael started to feel light headed during his meeting so he walked outside, and that’s when he collapsed.”
‘He was taken in an ambulance to Palm Beach Gardens Hospital where doctors found another blood clot in his lung,’ a close source said.
Michael Lohan’s health is steadily deteriorating and his family best make up with him while there is still time.
