Moon Tooth Guitarist Nick Lee Issues Health Update After A Month In The Hospital


A new video update shared by Moon Tooth guitarist/vocalist Nick Lee finds him providing an update on his health. Lee was hospitalized late last month after suffering a series of seizures. His condition led to him eventually being placed in a medically induced coma and intubated. In this latest update that was posted this past Sunday, August 21st, Lee revealed that he has been in the hospital for 31 days and is scheduled t expected to be released this week.

He spent three and a half of those weeks in a medically induced coma and was ultimately diagnosed with autoimmune limbic encephalitis. That condition is an inflammatory disease which can lead to seizures, short-term memory loss and other psychiatric-related issues. Amid his health woes, this GoFundMe was launched to help with mounting health bills.

According to Lee, while his release is rapidly approaching, he will still be requiring ongoing outpatient treatment for “my memory, my legs and my voice.”
