Sister Wives: Ysabel Brown In North Carolina Ahead of Her Own Surgery?
Christine and Kody Brown’s shared Ysabel Brown’s scoliosis diagnosis a few seasons ago on Sister Wives. Now as Ysabel is getting older and her scoliosis is still not under control. So it looks like she will finally have the surgery she and her family has been attempting to avoid all these years. Recently we learned the huge amount of money Christine needed to raise to cover her portion of the surgery. So that could explain why Kody was so adamant about pursuing non-surgical remedies.
So with Christine planning a lengthy social media hiatus and a “vacation” from selling her LuLaRoe fashions, it’s likely that after this family time with Maddie and the kids that Christine will be stepping back from her online public presence to tend to Ysabel’s recovery full time. SW fans will likely see the surgery storyline on the next season of the Brown’s hit TLC Sister Wives show which is currently filming and should air later this year or early next year.
