Lainey Wilsonis giving an update on her dad’s current health condition.
Last weekend, she canceled a couple shows to go home and be with her dad and family, and though she hasn’t personally shared specifics in terms of what’s going on, her sister has been sharing updates on her Facebook page.
Fox News reported that Lainey’s sister, Janna Wilson Sadler, confirmed that their dad had to have emergency surgery due to Diabetic Ketoacidosis.
He had fungus spreading through his system, which essentially kills tissue in your body, and was placed in the ICU while his medical team treated him with “extremely high” doses of anti-fungal medication. He has had several surgeries since being placed in the ICU.
And yesterday, Lainey shared a lengthy video on her Instagram, thanking fans, her team and her Yellowstone cast members for their ongoing prayers and support as she navigates this scary situation, adding that she has “seen the power of prayer start to work miracles.”
She also noted that, even though she understandably wants to spend every single second with her dad in the hospital, he has always valued “hard work,” and she’ll be back out on the road this weekend.

“Hey y’all, I just wanted to jump on here and check in on everything that has happened this past week. As a lot of y’all probably already know, my daddy has not been doing well, he is here in ICU here in Houston.
Along with just trying to deal with this awful situation, I just want you to know that I have seen the power of prayer start to work miracles. Every single prayer, every single heart has been felt by me and my family.
My country music family, my FastLainers, friends from all around the world, my team, the Yellowstone cast and crew. The support and outreach has been unreal, and overwhelming, and it does not go unnoticed.
I just wanted to say how much it means and let you know it truly is working miracles. He still has a long way to go, so please keep the prayers coming if you can. I know that it is truly making all the difference in the world. And if anybody has got a heart like a truck, it’s him.
And as much as I want to spend time, every minute of every hour by my daddy’s side, by my family’s said, I know that he takes pride in hard work, and that’s what I’m gonna do. So I’ll be back out on the road this weekend, singing every note for him and making him proud.”
