As fans may remember, Brie and Nikki previously revealed that Kathy was diagnosed with Belly’s palsy after she woke up and her face was paralyzed.
Now Brie feels the guilt. “I think of all the times when I thought, ‘Mom, stop worrying about the paralysis of the bell. Just do more acupuncture, do that, do that …'” she explains. “Now we realize that it’s not stress or Bell’s palsy, it’s these lesions in your brain.”
“I feel bad,” adds the reality TV personality. “I’m scared for her. And I just don’t want to lose my mother.”
But now is not the time to look at the past. Brie tells Nikki that Kathy’s doctors “want to have the surgery done as soon as possible because they feel if they don’t do it more permanent damage will be done”.
