Carlin Bates Stewart‘s health took a turn last night, causing her to be rushed to a larger Nashville hospital– and for her husband, Evan Stewart, to ask their fans and family to pray for her.
The Bringing Up Bates star opened up earlier this week about having to go to the hospital several times this month, due to experiencing “seizure-like symptoms” and passing out. In an Instagram post from earlier this week, Carlin said her doctors have run “multiple tests” and, while they had been able to “rule out a lot of scary things,” they still couldn’t figure out what was causing her health issues.
On Saturday, Evan posted to his own Instagram Stories that Carlin “had a really bad episode” with her health and was taken to a Nashville hospital via ambulance. He also posted a photo of Carlin on a gurney, with what appears to be a neck brace on.
“I just got back with her a little while ago,” Evan wrote. “She is doing OK but we really covet your prayers in hope of finding answers.”
There have been no further updates on Carlin since Saturday night.
Whitney Bates— who is married to Carlin’s oldest brother Zach— posted about Carlin on Instagram on Sunday.
“We keep in touch with her just about every day or so, checking in to make sure she is doing OK,” Whitney Bates posted on Instagram Stories. We are just continually praying for her health and praying God has his hand of protection over her as they continue to try to find answers!
“She’s hanging in there and being a total trooper and has the best husband and support system,” Whitney continued. “Please keep her in your prayers and I know she appreciates each one of them!”

The official Bates Family social media has not posted any updates on Carlin’s health; however, the parents of 19 wrote a comment on Carlin’s original post about her health earlier this week.
“I know this is so frustrating and so scary, but we are all here for you!” the Bates parents wrote. “We are gonna keep praying and searching until we find out what we can do to help stop the seizures and fainting! We love you so much! You are a trooper! You’ve had the best attitude through all of this.”
Carlin is the mother of two children– daughter Layla, who was born in January 2020, and son Zade, whom Carlin gave birth to on March 28.
