Since having bariatric surgery after her near-death experience in which she was put in a medically induced coma, Slaton said she has "wised up" about her health.

"I was able to make my lungs strong enough to get my trach [tracheostomy tube for breathing] out, and then recently, the doctor cleared me to be off my oxygen machine during the daytime," she told PEOPLE in May.

"Now I only wear my oxygen at night, along with my BiPap machine. I monitor my oxygen levels throughout the day and keep my machine on hand in case I need it," she said at the time, noting that she's "feeling great."

"I'm thankful to be alive, and it's fun to be progressing as much as I am," she expressed.
