On Instagram on May 10, Kelly Jo shared a video, giving fans an update on her health scare. She writes, “Update: Thank you all for praying! I got checked out! Thank everyone for your prayers and concerns! I am going home to rest and to finish antibiotics! So excited! I know I keep getting ‘wake up’ calls to eat healthier and do better, so maybe I’ll have more success with my motivation this time 😱”
In her video, Kelly Jo explains that she’s on her way home from the hospital and picking up her prescriptions. She thanks her followers for all of their love and prayers too.
She went to the ER on the Wednesday prior to Mother’s Day due to some pain that began in January. As it worsened, she decided to seek medical attention. She tells fans that the new issue isn’t related to her surgery, adding that the operation in October went “tremendously.”
It sounds like this issue was caused by an infection in her esophagus. Luckily, it seems like she’s going to be okay with the help of the medications.
