JOHN MEADOWS commended his wife for helping him live with a rare disease
In a recent interview, John described his wife’s central role in helping him live with a rare colon disease called idiopathic myointimal hyperplasia of the mesenteric veins.
The condition was believed to have contributed to a blood clot that rushed him to hospital in 2020.
In an interview, John said, “I couldn’t have done it without her. When I got sick and came out of the hospital and I was too weak to take care of myself, she did everything for me, including sanitary things that I can’t talk about. “
He continued, “If I say I want to do something, we’ll talk about it, make sure it’s doable, and then she’ll stand by me and support the idea and me all the way.”
“And if I’ve been sore in the last three or four weeks of my diet, she sees the look on my face and says, ‘Hang on, it will be worth it,’ and that’s what I need to hear at this stage.”
