Unfortunately doctors discovered that it wasn't functioning as it should, so now Eddie has to have surgery to have a Watchman implant inserted.

Eddie was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, otherwise known as an irregular heartbeat, in 2018. It has been a long road for the couple as they've endured several surgeries to try and fix the problem.

"Eddie had his first heart procedure the day after we moved in. Since we moved in he’s had a total of five heart procedures and he’s still not doing great and he’s just taking it day by day," Tamra explained in June 2018.

"He’s actually worse right now than when he started out. He just had a heart procedure three weeks ago where they went in and catheterized his heart in 71 places and we thought that was going to be the end but now he’s in the healing process," she added at the time.
