PALM SPRINGS, Calif., June 30 (UPI) -- Dan Dotson was released from the hospital Sunday.

The Storage Wars auctioneer had been in medical care for a double brain aneurysm since June 16. He was initially given a 4 to 20 percent chance to live, but underwent a successful surgery June 17. The reality star told TMZ on Monday that the aneurysm did not cause any permanent damage.

Dotson is currently on bed rest at home, but is allowed to return to work in two weeks. He is required to check his blood pressure every hour, and said it is a miracle he survived. He credits his team of doctors with saving his life, and intends to "turn his health around" now that he has a "second chance."

Storage Wars follows professional buyers who make their living purchasing and selling the contents of storage units. A rule in California allows units to be auctioned off if renters do not pay rent for three months, and Dotson is an auctioneer on the program. The reality series airs Tuesdays on A&E.
