Brittany Cartwright Gives Update On Her Mom After She Was Admitted To The ICU
Earlier this year, multiple blogs reported that Sherri Cartwright was in the hospital after a bladder surgery gone wrong. A Reddit thread saw a post that her problematic pastor made asking for prayers for the matriarch.
Brittany rushed to her home state to be by her side. Later, the reality star was joined by her husband, Jax Taylor .
Brittany took to Instagram to thank fans for their well wishes and share how Sherri is doing now.
' I just want to say thank you to everyone who has prayed and sent best wishes for my wonderful Mom. ❤️ She has made an amazing recovery and is doing so so much better. For those of you who don’t know her story, she went in for a bladder surgery, stayed a couple nights in the hospital and was sent home. She was feeling horrible and days later she was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. Her 45 minute surgery turned into 4 1/2 hours. It was the scariest moments and a horrible time to be so far away in California. We found out after that they had tore her bowel during her bladder surgery, they didn’t notice and she had gone septic.'
She added: 'The emergency doctors were amazing and they literally saved her life. She fought on life support for a couple days and woke up days later with no idea what had happened to her. I flew straight to Kentucky and stayed by her side. She is so strong and has come so far from the first days I stayed with her in the hospital. This was a very scary time but she is bouncing right back!! Please keep her in your prayers as she continues to heal for her next surgery. Also my hubby @mrjaxtaylor was amazing during this time, he came right to KY and helped us through everything. I love you honey! Hug the ones you love and hold them tight! You never know what could happen. I am very thankful right now.'
With beds being taken up by COVID-19 victims, this was one of the worst times for someone to get seriously ill. Thankfully, Cartwright is alive to tell her story and had the support of her family to get her through it.
