Beloved Carpenter Ty Pennington Intubated After Medical Emergency

Ty Pennington is sharing a health update with fans after he was hospitalized and intubated just hours after attending the Barbie premiere.

On July 14, Pennington, who many people know best as the carpenter for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, took to Instagram to share photos of himself in a hospital gown.


At one point, Pennington was intubated before he regained consciousness. “From the red carpet, to the ICU… this last week has been interesting!

As Pennington continued, he shared with his fans that “I’m okay now, still recovering but I felt it looked weird that I hadn’t posted about my teams #BOTB VICTORY!SO freaking proud of @smashingdiy & @iamstevelewis!!”


Pennington then went on to explain exactly what happened. “To shed some light on why I was MIA… Sunday I hit the red carpet for @barbiethemovie, Monday I flew to Colorado to start filming in Breckinridge and Tuesday morning I woke up at 4am and could barely breathe. Turns out, that sore throat I’ve had for the last month was actually an abscess which had grown so large it was closing off my airway. Next thing I know, I was intubated and flown to the ICU in Denver.”

“Wednesday I had surgery and yesterday afternoon I was released from the ICU. Thank you so much to all the amazing staff at St.Anthony’s in Lakewood, CO & Summit Health in Frisco for taking such great care of me. A great reminder to LISTEN to your body when it’s telling you something,” Pennington added along with the hashtag, “just happy to be here.”


How scary! We are so glad to hear Pennington is now doing well and on his way to recovery!
