We have a health update on 90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson, who was hospitalized over the weekend with kidney failure after being found unresponsive in her home on Sunday.
“Ashley underwent surgery where they placed a catheter into her abdomen,” someone shared for Ashley on her Instagram account. “This is for access site to begin peritoneal dialysis today. Doctors are hopeful that dialysis will be temporary and that it will aid in helping her kidneys repair themselves.”
Doctors are also hopeful that the dialysis will curtail the need for a transplant. “Please continue to pray that this works and that Ashley will not need a kidney transplant,” the update continues. “Either way Ashley will be down for quite some time.”
Although Ashley will be “down for quite some time,” she is still hopeful that she will be able to leave the hospital soon. “There is a chance she can go home tomorrow and be looked after by home health care nurses.”
In case you missed it, soon after it was announced that Ashley was in the hospital, a GoFundMe campaign was started in hopes of raising $10,000 to apply to her mounting medical bills. “Please continue to pray for Ashley and if you are able to help I know Ashley is very appreciative,” the new update adds. “Information to help is in Ashleys Bio. I wish everyone a blessed day!”
Ashley shared another update in her Instagram story indicating that the GoFundMe servers were down and encouraging people to send her money directly via Paypal.
Meanwhile, Ashley’s husband Jay didn’t appear to be with Ashley while she was in the hospital Sunday night. He shared a screen cap of her friend’s Instagram story update and added the message: “I know you’re going through a lot get well soon snow flake ❄️”
Jay seemingly confirmed that he wasn’t at the hospital — or even within driving distance — with an Instagram post today. In addition to time stamped photo of Ashley’s hand holding her phone with a hospital bracelet on (at the top of this post), he wrote the following message:
I may have hurt you. I may have not been a good husband. Jumping on a plane the second I found out you was in the hospital was something I didn’t even think twice to do. We have our differences but as long as I have life I will never let you sit alone and suffer. I love you and nothing will ever change that. Thank you for having me here to support you.
It’s unclear where Jay was that required him to hop on a plane to be by Ashley’s side.
And Jay wasn’t the only one associated with 90 Day Fiance to show support. Ashley shared a photo of her phone showing a message of “Love you!” from Kalani’s sister Kolini:
Potential future 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After co-star Paola Mayfield responded to Jay’s message by writing: “Through the good times and the bad times,” along with three heart emoji.
Here are some more 90 Day Fiance cast members’ messages to Ashley after her initial post:
Kalani: you’ve overcome so many things in your life. I know if there’s anyone who can get through this it’s you. You’re one of the best moms and baddest b*tches I know. I hope you feel better soon, beauty. I wish we lived closer. ??❤️

TLC also showed their support by
donating a large sum of money to help pay for Ashley’s medical billssending flowers and balloons:
Unfortunately, not everyone is rallying behind Ashley’s fundraising efforts. Perhaps jaded by all of the other GoFundMe campaigns started by 90 Day Fiance franchise cast members over the past few months, some fans are expressing their suspicions. Here is a rather comprehensive example from reddit.
Of course we wish Ashley all the best and hope that she has a speedy recovery! We will continue to update our readers on her condition.
