In a new shocker, Dog the Bounty Hunter star Duane Chapman has exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com that his cancer-stricken wife Beth made the decision to leave the hospital in California against her doctors' advice.
Beth, 51, and her beloved husband, 65, are awaiting the results of her biopsy after surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for cancer last week, as Radar has reported.
She underwent the emergency surgery on her throat on Tuesday, November 27, after learning the devastating news that her cancer had returned.
Reality TV star Beth has undergone a biopsy to see if the cancer has spread, as Radar has exclusively reported. Now Beth and Duane are anxiously awaiting the results.
But they have now returned to their Colorado home at her insistence.
Duane exclusively told Radar that on Saturday, "They told us they didn't want her to leave the hospital, but she was adamant, she just wanted to be home. We have the test results coming in tomorrow," Monday, December 3.
"She was in a wheelchair to the plane and then a wheelchair on the other side and we were met by friends when we landed who brought us home," Duane revealed.
"Beth slept for almost an entire day, and she was more comfortable, then she got up and she was trying to do things around the house, trying to do laundry and wash the dishes, I said to her 'I've done all that, don't worry.' "
Speaking from their home in Colorado, Duane was understandably emotional, telling Radar, "I'm nervous about the test results tomorrow. It's like you kinda know what's gonna happen, but you're hoping and praying it's not."
He revealed, "They say the cancer follows the path of least resistance, so it goes downward. Half of her lung was full of water.
"But she's much more comfortable now she can breathe, but she just wanted to come back to Colorado, she loves it here," he said.
Beth is bravely trying to get back to her normal activities after crying in hospital photos obtained by Radar.
The tough guy TV icon told Radar one of the reasons they enjoy their Colorado retreat so much: "This morning, there were 20 deer in the backyard. They know when the cars come who it is, and we feed them so they come to the backyard.
"And I've never seen so many deer in the backyard. It's like the animals know somehow about Beth's health and she loves the deer so much, and all the animals."
Duane shared his video for Radar readers of the peaceful snowy backyard scene of deers nuzzling on their property:
