Bringing Up Bates star Erin Bates Paine made her return to social media on Sunday evening. She revealed why she’s been absent and asked fans to pray for her.
Erin says that she is currently dealing with some medical issues. She recently took a social media break because of her health struggles. Before that, she was posting sporadically on social media. So, fans noticed that something was going on behind the scenes. Now, they finally have an explanation.
Erin Bates returns to social media
On her shared Instagram account with her husband Chad Paine, Erin shared a family photo and a life update. She explains that she hasn’t been on social media very much, but she wanted to let her followers know what’s happening. In her lengthy post, she writes:
“I have had 3 surgeries over the past few months, due to cysts that have ruptured and caused a lot of internal bleeding. I ended up having to have one ovary removed and most of my second removed as well. It has been scary and really discouraging at times, but we have been so grateful for the medical doctors who have helped us navigate through these uncertainties. God has held our hands through it, and has given us a peace and strength that we cannot explain. We have found that His mercies are definitely new every morning.”
Then, she goes on to thank her husband for all he’s done during this time, calling him a “hero.” She says, “He has pampered and waited on me hand and foot all day and all night. He has been so patient and caring, and he’s not too shabby as a cook, and for sure better than me at laundry, dishes, and mopping. His daily love notes have made me cry and smile at the same time, and nothing is sweeter than hearing the kids belly laugh as he chases them through the house for hours, or makes his stories come to life every night. I am so blessed.”
