Alaskan Bush People: Billy Brown Breathless On Discovery Channel Show
Before Billy Brown lets the family know the results of his medical test, he discusses this with Ami on screen. First, the Alaskan Bush People patriarch said that half of his heart is wearing out. He also shares how this is the root of all the ailments that plagued him over the last decade.
While Bilky, dad of this wolfpack, is understandably scared, Ami tries to calm him a bit. She turns to her husband and says at least they know what the problem is now. The fans have seen Billy Briwn in and out of the hospital a few times through the Alaskan Bush People seasons.
Apparently, the Alaskan Bush People dad’s recent breathing problems stem from heart failure. Billy said he was told by the doctors he needed to move off the mountain for good.
It seems the doctors feel that life in the wilderness is not recommended for a man with this ailment. This season Billy seemed out of breath at times after the least bit of exertion. So, it seems as if he struggled with his ailment but kept it hidden the best he could from the fans.
Wolf Pack Rallies Around Dad
Alaskan Bush People matriarch, Ami Brown, reminded her husband how they don’t sugar coat things. So it’s time to tell their kids exactly what Billy’s tests revealed.
The wilderness parents gather the family and tell them about their dad’s health and the prognosis. This is on the heels of years of worry over Ami’s health problems. The father of the Alaskan Bush People brood said that he has to tell the kids now that mom’s great, dad might die.
Once he explains how his heart is failing him, Billy Brown tells the Alaskan Bush People offspring that doctors can’t fix this. Ami adds that their father’s health won’t get better. A decade of Billy Brown’s aliments is finally diagnosed as his heart. But it’s affecting his kidneys, lungs and al his organs, according to Billy.
So, for this reason, Billy cannot remain in a trailer on the mountain. But he wants the kids to continue building their homes on North Star Ranch. He tells them even though he and Ami won’t be there, he wants to see them complete their goal.
The Alaskan Bush People tribe shed tears with the initial impact of Billy’s news. But they quickly rebound with enthusiasm and a plan. While Billy’s diagnosis sounds grim, the kids find inspirational words and hope for a miracle. Most of all, their dad is going nowhere off this mountain while he’s still alive. They devise a plan to keep him right where he wants to be – on North Star Ranch.
Alaskan Bush People: Plan Unfolds to Keep Billy On Mountain
Billy Brown’s children plan to build him a house. This way he’ll have sound shelter and all the comforts of a real home instead of a trailer. This is where Billy plans to live until he dies. But first, he plans to do some living in a communal home, one that holds three families.
Ami and Billy Brown will stay in one section of this big new home they plan to build. Next, his two sons who just started their own little families will live on either side of the Alaskan Bush People’s parents.
Gabe Brown and his wife Raquell Brown will occupy one section of this home next to their parents. Gabe was thrilled when Billy approached him with this idea. Next, Billy approaches Noah Brown.
Billy Brown worries that past problems may serve as a roadblock for this new plan for the future. But Noah couldn’t be happier with the plan. Noah, his wife, Rhain Brown, and their son, Elijah Brown will make their home in a section of this one big house Billy wants to build.
As the sun sets on this season of the Alaskan Bush People the plan is in place. Billy never offered any prognosis on the time he has left. But the family feels if he stays on the mountain it will prolong his life rather than shorten it as doctors suggest. So Billy Brown plans to live his final time out on the mountain surrounded by his kids and grandkids.
