    LA HABRA, Calif. (KABC) -- Nearly two years after a months-long battle against COVID-19, David March thought he would be back to fishing, riding his Harley, and bowling. Instead, he is in need of a new kidney.The discovery came last December when he had to be hospitalized."The kidney transplant, for me, is the only viable option," said March. "My kidneys are functioning at less than 10%."He is on the waiting list for a transplant. But ahead of him on that list are nearly 20,000 Californians who are also waiting for a kidney."They say California is a 10 to 12 year wait," March said. "They've also put me out-of-state, which could be anywhere from three to seven years possibly."He was diabetic before catching the virus. However, March says doctors have told him COVID-19 was a contributing factor to his kidney issues. He needs dialysis three days a week."I just rest, come home," March said. "Normally I'll sit in a chair and fall asleep that evening, and sometimes even the next day I'm still pretty tired and wiped out."Cherished time with family...

    Former professional wrestler Jimmy Rave - who spent much of the past year in hospital after undergoing three amputations - died Sunday at age 39. The legendary Ring of Honor star's cause of death was not revealed, but a friend said he struggled with addiction and believes his inner demons caught up to him.  'I have no idea what happened or the specifics here but it’d be hard to not believe his battles with his demons contributed greatly to his passing at a very young age of 39,' fellow wrestler Randy Wayne wrote on Facebook.  'If you’re fighting addiction, get help. If you don’t know where to turn, message, text or call me and I’ll get you pointed in the right direction to get the help you need.' Rave (whose real name was James Michael Guffey) began wrestling in 1999 and was a two-time National Wrestling Alliance heavyweight champion, his friend Bill Behrens said when announcing his death Monday. Rave in October shared a jarring photo of himself lying in his hospital bed with both legs and his left arm...

And several weeks before her death last month, neurological tremors began that wouldn't let her sleep for more than an hour at a time, Guthe said.As the pandemic in the US slows, the fight against long haul Covid is onThey tried to get answers, but doctors pointed to other causes instead, none which seemed to fit with what Ferrer was experiencing, Guthe told CNN.

    Washington (CNN)The Trump administration battled with CNN for half a year to obtain the email records of a reporter and insisted it all take place under an extraordinary order of secrecy, CNN's lead attorney revealed on Wednesday. The pursuit -- which started in July 2020 under then-Attorney General William Barr with a demand for two months' of CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr's 2017 email logs -- continued even after a federal judge told the Justice Department its argument for access to Starr's internal emails was "speculative" and "unanchored in any facts." The Trump administration's secret pursuit represents a highly unusual and unrelenting push for journalists' records. It included putting CNN general counsel David Vigilante under a gag order prohibiting him from sharing any details about the government's efforts with anyone beyond the network's president, top attorneys at CNN's corporate parent and attorneys at an outside law firm. Read More Had Vigilante violated that order, he would have risked being held in contempt of court or potentially faced a felony prosecution for obstruction of justice. It's not uncommon for...
