Ryan revealing the long road he’s facing, plus the multiple lung collapses he’s had to face.
“I was prepared to quietly start a path to healing from the emotional trauma and continue on my way,” Ryan wrote in the caption to his video. “Unfortunately, the strange hissing and glugging coming from my chest every time I took a breath begged to differ with that assessment.”
He learned his lung collapsed after being discharged from the hospital and “air was filling up my chest cavity.” “It could take months, if ever, for the hole to seal. Lunches of grilled cheese and tomato soup and art walks blurred into one until the day came to remove portions of my lung.”
“Along with accepting the news that I was about to be readmitted, several nurses and doctors told me how they had been in the room when I came in with my gunshot. How they didn’t think I was going to make it,” Fischer recalled. “To hear them actually say it I had truly been confronted with my mortality.”
