Carlin Bates gives health update
After four hospital visits in the space of a week, Carlin Bates has finally given fans a sigh of relief as she revealed doctors are almost 90 per cent sure she is having seizures but aren’t sure which kind she is experiencing.
She took to Instagram to tell her followers that she has been trying to figure out why she keeps passing out and having seizure-like symptoms, which led to doctors running multiple tests and being unable to diagnose the issue.
Carlin is now wearing a heart monitor which has been recording her seizure episodes. The Bringing Up Bates star recently shared on her Instagram stories that she had an episode in front of doctors and said:
We’re actually getting some answers because I ended up having an episode while I was at my follow-up appointment. If I’m going to have them, I’m glad they’re in front of doctors. That’s why I’m a little shaky.
She added that it’s going to “take a little testing” to figure out what exactly is causing the seizures but added that there are medicines that can help control them and suppress them, as she is having “so many episodes.”
She spent her wedding anniversary in hospital
On the day of Carlin and Evan’s three-year wedding anniversary, they shared tributes to each other on Instagram. However, at the same time, she was spending three hours in the hospital before being wheeled out by Evan.
They discussed that they would pick up dinner on the way home from the emergency room to celebrate before Carlin shared a video of her stories of them tucking into dinner. She captioned the story with the phrase “living out our lives”.
Carlin added: “Happy anniversary to us.” In the background of her story, Carlin and Evan were seen watching an episode of The Office and looking after their daughter after returning home from the hospital appointment.

The reality TV star went on to say her doctor was the “sweetest she has ever met in her life” and stayed late to help her even though his colleagues had already left the office and gone home.
