Gymnast McKayla Maroney is home from the hospital and already giving in to her cravings. Just hours after revealing she was admitted into an emergency room in Orange County, CA for “severe pain,” the 25-year-old Olympian let her fans know she is home and deep in recovery.
Taking to her social media on the evening of Thursday, February 25, McKayla Maroney posted a picture showing she was cooling down after an intense night inside the ER where she was treated for kidney stones.
Showing her first stop before home was Nekter Juice Bar, McKayla Maroney took a snap of a large berry smoothie revealing that this was the only thing she could keep down despite not having an appetite at all. Sharing a shot of her first dinner since being released, the former “Final Five” team member revealed that while she planned to suck down the smoothie, she wasn’t feeling much better.
“Home from ER. They treated me wonderful, but unfortunately not much has changed,” McKayla Maroney told her 1.3 million followers, adding that at least she “on pain management” which is giving her some relief. Scroll to see the shot!
“This smoothie is literally the only thing I can even think of stomaching,” the Olympian continued. Despite having no stomach for dinner, McKayla Maroney managed to get a very important message across. Typing “Free Britney” on the Nekter Juice Bar bag, the gymnast made it known that she’s clearly on Britney Spears‘ side when it comes to the singer’s conservatorship battle against her father, Jamie Spears.
