At the time of Sherri's ICU stint, details were minimum of exactly what happened but now Brittany Cartwright is clearing it all up. "She went in for a bladder surgery, stayed a couple nights in the hospital and was sent home," she began explaining. Revealing that her mom was "feeling horrible" days later, they "rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery."

Saying her "45 minute surgery turned into 4 1/2 hours," Brittany Cartwright described it as "the scariest moments and a horrible time" to be stuck in California. The former SUR waitress immediately flew to her mother's side after finding "they had tore her bowel during her bladder surgery, they didn’t notice and she had gone septic."

Still Has Another Surgery To Go:

Praising the emergency doctors saying, "they literally saved her life," Brittany Cartwright told her followers that Sherri was on life support for a few days before waking up and "no idea what had happened to her." Revealing that her mom still has another surgery to go, the "Vanderpump Rules" star said, "She is so strong and has come so far from the first days I stayed with her in the hospital. This was a very scary time but she is bouncing right back!!"

Gushing Over Jax Taylor:

Brittany Cartwright then turned her focus to her husband, thanking him for being with her to pick up the pieces. Telling her followers, "He came right to KY and helped us through everything." Interestingly enough, fans raised eyebrows when Jax Taylor didn't initially go with Brittany Cartwright to Kentucky. Instead, he stayed behind in Los Angeles and rang in Stassi Schroeder's 32nd birthday with his ex, Kristen Doute, Katie Maloney, and Tom Schwartz. He reunited with Brittany weeks later and stayed on the family's farm until their return this week.
