As Hollywood Life reported, Dan only had a "4 percent to 20 percent chance of survival" during the surgery. Laura gave the site further details about the terrifying night Dan was rushed to the hospital.

"She recalls that Dan had double vision and did not feel well so he went back to sleep, but when he woke up to take a shower, he turned blue and collapsed so she immediately called 911 and administered CPR on her husband."

Fortunately, it appeared Dan had a successful surgery and is recovering. According to The Hollywood Reporter, A&E released a statement to the site, saying that their thoughts are with Dan's family and they wish him a speedy recovery.
