Bringing Up Bates: Gil Bates Recovers From Surgery

Gil Bates of Bringing Up Bates begins his recovery from rotator cuff surgery on the next episode. Remember, he got a little carried away while doing push-ups with the younger members of the church. So, the doctor said surgery is necessary if he ever wants full use of that arm. Gil does tree work for a living and is grandpa to 14 grandchildren he wants to be able to play with.

So, it’s important to take care of himself and stay healthy. The surgery was a success but it will take about 4 months before Gil Bates back to normal. Now, Gil needs to take it easy so it’s a good thing he has such a large family who’s eager to help. No doubt, he’ll be back up and chopping down trees in no time on Bringing Up Bates.

The Bates’ Girls Head Off to a Group Ultrasound

Bringing up Bates stars Erin Bates Paine, Whitney Perkins Bates, and Carlin Bates Stewart are all expectant mothers. So, on the next episode, they decide it will be a great experience to go to their ultrasound appointments together. Of course, their mom goes along to support the girls and get a first look at three of her new grandbabies. Surely, they’re all excited as they get closer to meeting their new bundles.

Of course, this is nothing new for Erin and Whitney but they’re still ecstatic to welcome another baby. This is a first for Carlin though and she’s not entirely sure what to expect on Bringing up Bates. Of course, she’s seen many of her sisters go through pregnancy and childbirth. However, it’s completely different to experience it yourself. No doubt, all of the Bates sisters are over the moon as they see their precious babies on the screen.
