I don't know, but a google of S.D. news stories, may reveal a blockage in the sewer treatment plant in the time he was losing.

>>>He will have health aides at home and a doctor will check on him regularly.<<<

>>>Deuel, who relies on Medicare to pay his hospital bills, can't stay at the hospital indefinitely.<<<

And we wonder why Medicare is slowly breaking this country's ability to pay?

For people who get themselves in this situation (I have no doubts that it is a self-inflicted condition) there should be a "527" that rich fat people can contribute to to help out their poor fat fellow travelers.

Paying for this self-inflicted abuse at the cost of not funding more widely experienced health problems is ludicrous.

Is that a 'Before' picture or an 'After' picture? I'm not sure if I could tell the difference between 1000lbs and 650lbs...

Enabling for sure. He couldn't shop and cook for himself. Who was buying/fixing/serving/paying for all his food? The enabler(s) has problems as big as this guy.

I agree completely. It is cruel to do anything to help someone remain morbidly obese. If someone in my family were too overweight to walk, I'd bring that person non-caloric liquids, protein, fruits, and vegetables -- and that's it.

I sure pray he makes this goal. Being morbidly obese has to be a living hell. I know many people do it to themselves, but it's still awful. Godspeed to him for trying to come back to a liveable life.

Wow! I'm a whopping 138 and I feel like I'm morbidly obese!
This guy should have gotten help a loooong time ago. Sounds like he missed out on a lot of living, which is a shame. Better late than never though. Good luck to him!
