It had been reported that after the pacemaker was put into her body, she became agitated. Jasmine had written on Facebook on 8 July:

“They had to move her to a room where they can monitor her more closely. She pulled out her feeding tube and has been trying to fully climb out of bed. Her lung collapsed. They just discovered in the last few hours so they are putting a tube in to reinflate it. A rough day so far. Mom and Josh have been up with her today. I’m home-sick with a small cold and trying not to worry.”
