Wilson shared a Facebook post from her sister, Janna Wilson Sadler, that explained their father is suffering from DKA, or Diabetic Ketoacidosis, and had to have emergency surgery. He currently is in the ICU and “has a very long road ahead.”
The update also provided insight into why Wilson’s father needed surgery. Sadler wrote, “During surgery they removed a lot of dead tissue. Fungus invades tissue and essentially kills it; hence the importance of stopping the spread quickly.”
Wilson also shared on her Instagram story, “Folks are praying around the world. Please keep sending them up for my deddy.”
