Zach & Whitney Bates share a sad family update.

In a new Instagram post on Friday afternoon, Zach and Whitney wrote, “Im begging all of you, if you can, to please please say a pray for my sweet daddy. He had a procedure last week and there ended up being some complications.”

They then revealed gave an update on how he’s doing now. They wrote:

“He came back to the hospital Wednesday night. He is still in ICU and now in septic shock. They have him on a ventilator and dialysis. His levels are just not getting where they need to be and his body is not responding to the dialysis as well as they’d hoped. His major organs are beginning to shut down and be greatly affected. He needs a miracle. I’ve never known a better man that loved the Lord more. My daddy loves Jesus more than life itself. Please please pray that God’s will be done and he has mercy on my daddy. Love you all. And thank you to each and everyone that has already called or text or came by.. We love you. Xx 🤍”

Based on the picture, it looks like Whitney’s adoptive father, Johnny Owens, or her biological dad, J.C. Perkins is in the hospital. As far as we know, Gil Bates is totally healthy and the post appears to be written by Whitney about one of her fathers.
