UPDATED: Can the Brown ‘kids’ step up following Ami’s injury?
Last night, ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE returned to Discovery Channel, and the Brown family found themselves facing trouble once again, this time the biggest emergency coming from a physical problem striking mom Ami.
Just when the Browns thought they were facing clear sailing, with a summer of preparing for winter ahead of them instead of just trying to limp their way through the summer, Ami began experiencing severe pain. The Browns had actually just finished dealing with one problem–the throttle on their boat was stuck wide-open as they tried to pull logs through the water to be milled because the “boys” tied the logs wrong and it was dragging on the boat–when the next problem began to present itself.
Apparently Ami has had neck problems in the past, but last night, she was in excruciating pain, with swelling on her neck and down her spine. Ami said it was burning, and it was like a vice was tightening on the area. She did not want to go to the doctor, but she ended up in the hospital, anyway.
It was not clear exactly what had happened to Ami, but the pain was referred to as an “injury.” What was the problem? What was the treatment? Was it a short-term or long-term issue? And, could it result in Ami having to stay in town permanently? None of these questions were answered last night. All that was really clear was that Ami continued to be in severe pain with no answers forthcoming.
Billy, Snowbird, Rainy and Noah all accompanied Ami to the hospital for testing and treatment. The rest of the “boys” stayed back, to try and get some work completed. They vowed that when their mom returned, she would not have to lift a finger to work–but they are going to have to pull together a little better in order to make that happen. Yes, they caught some salmon last night, but not without the usual annoying bickering, meaning that the task at hand took longer than it should have–not a good way to conduct business when there is a lot to do with limited time to do it all.
So, perhaps next week we will get a better idea of just what is wrong with Ami; in the meantime, we certainly wish her well.
