1000-lb Sisters’ star Amy Slaton’s baby drama includes C-section and low blood-sugar level
Tammy Slaton isn’t the only drama mama on “1000-lb Sisters.”
Her sister, Amy, who recently gave birth to a son named Gage, has acknowledged that the baby’s blood-sugar levels were dangerously low after delivery.
“I just got out of [the] recovery room and Gage is in the nursery because his sugar was 24 — they want it at 50,” noted Amy. “So they’re giving him a little bit of formula, trying to get it up.”
Other details of the troubling pregnancy revealed that the boy was delivered by Caesarean section after he emerged in the breech position.
“Gage was still in the breech position, so in the end, I had to have a C-section,” Amy explained in a video clip for next week’s show obtained by People. “And then they took him away to the nursery to get some tests run because he had low blood sugar, ‘cause it dropped. I’m hoping everything’s OK.”
But Tammy appears to have some reservations about her sister’s predicament.
“I was mad and sad and worried about her health and safety since it was so soon after her [weight-loss] surgery,” Tammy stated. “I’m happy she got pregnant because it was the one thing she most wanted in life.”
During the Feb. 15 episode of “1000-lb Sisters,” Tammy dropped a bombshell on her family and boyfriend of two years, Jerry, proclaiming herself pansexual.
“I would date anybody whether they’re transgender, straight, gay,” Tammy explained to Jerry. “It’s about how they make me feel, not how they look.”
“1000-lb Sisters” airs Monday nights on TLC.
