In the latest episode of Sister Wives, Christine Brown shares a special celebratory moment with the rest of the Brown family. Her daughter, Ysabel, will finally be getting a much-needed surgery to help correct her scoliosis. Unfortunately, according to Kody Brown‘s former wife, there is one aspect of the procedure that she has opted to keep a secret from him. Read on to find out what’s going on with Ysabel and what Christine has been hiding from her children’s father.
Ysabel Finally Gets Her Surgery
After years of pain and discomfort, Ysabel Brown is finally getting surgery to correct the curvature in her spine. Ysabel received her scoliosis diagnosis at the age of twelve. When she was younger, the symptoms were mild and reasonably manageable. Unfortunately, as she grew and got taller, the condition’s symptoms became much more painful. During the latest episode, Christine reveals that finally getting an official date for the surgery is a huge weight off her shoulders. “It’s been about 4 years now that she’s just been in so much pain,” she tells the camera during a confessional.
Kody Wanted Ysabel To Wait Even Longer
Initially, despite Ysabel living with the pain of her condition, her father, Kody, felt that it wasn’t the right time to have the procedure done. Kody Brown has been notoriously ‘cautious’ during the pandemic and has, on multiple occasions, expressed that having such a big procedure felt overwhelmingly risky to him with everything that’s going on.
While fans understand Kody’s concerns about being exposed to the virus, they are disappointed by the selfishness Kody displayed when it came to his daughter’s surgery.
Ysabel, who certainly appears nervous about the surgery, desperately wanted her father to be there. Unfortunately, Kody felt that it would make things difficult in regards to his schedule with the rest of the family because he would have to quarantine for two weeks up to the surgery. This would prevent him from being able to interact with other wives and children.
Fortunately, while Kody initially wanted to put off Ysabel’s procedure, Christine has been a loud advocate for her daughter. Refusing to let her child continue to live with pain, Christine Brown pushed and got an official date for the surgery.
During the episode, Kody still maintains that he won’t be attending the surgery, but muses that at least the pending appointment will require that they keep safe and healthy via quarantine up until and for sometime after that point.
Christine Brown Keeps A Huge Secret From Kody
In last week’s episode, Christine reveals to her sister wives and the kids that Ysabel is finally getting her surgery. She explains how the procedure will go and how it will improve Ysabel’s life. Suddenly, the camera cuts to an interview with Christine where she’s telling the camera about the issues surrounding the surgery.
During the interview, Christine jokingly shares a conversation that she had recently had with her daughter. “Don’t tell Kody this. This is a secret,” Christine tells producers and fans in a confessional. According to her, Ysabel had approached her about getting a tattoo. The young reality celeb told her mother that she wanted it under her arm to cover the 4 scar that the surgery would create. The mom-of-six giggles uncontrollably, as she reveals that she gave her daughter the green light on her request.
Christine Brown tells fans that she opted to support her daughter’s request despite knowing that her Dad would certainly not be happy about it. She reasons, however, that Ysabel would be a legal adult at that point. So, Kody’s opinion would no longer really matter.
“Kody is so adamantly opposed to tattoos,” Christine says. “I doubt she’s told him, but I mean, she’s going to be 18 and moving out. I guess how he feels about it doesn’t really matter because she [Ysabel] won’t be living at home when she gets one.”
Do you think that Christine was wrong to keep the secret from Kody? What kind of tattoo do you think Ysabel would pick for herself? Tell us in the comments.
