While "Dog the Bounty Hunter" star Beth Chapman remains in a medically-induced coma, her husband Duane offered fans a small update. 

In his first Twitter post since revealing the news of Beth's hospitalization, Duane shared a close-up photo of her right hand, adorned in medical wristbands and an IV but meticulously manicured with rhinestones and fake nails. 

"You all know how she is about HER NAILS !!" Chapman captioned the photo late Monday. 

Her family members "have been with her at the hospital," where she remains in "very serious" condition, Chapman's lawyer, Andrew Brettler, told USA TODAY on Monday. Duane asked fans Sunday to pray for his wife. 

On Friday, Chapman was hospitalized after having difficulty breathing and passing out momentarily. Doctors put her in a coma to spare her from pain during treatment, family spokeswoman Mona Wood-Sword told the Associated Press.

According to an article from Hawaii News Now that Duane shared on his Twitter and Facebook pages, the family told newscasters in a statement Saturday that she had been to the Intensive Care Unit at Queen's Medical Center in Hawaii.

"Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you," Duane wrote early Sunday morning, before sharing the article. 

Beth was originally diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer in September 2017 after having a nagging cough checked out; it returned later as Stage 4 lung cancer, Wood-Sword told the Associated Press. The reality star began chemotherapy in December 2018, Brettler confirmed to USA TODAY at the time.
