Lowell, 30, was diagnosed with a peri-urethral cyst. She had to have it removed and wear a catheter for 10 days. Lowell was anxious heading into surgery because she knew she wouldn’t be able to fulfill her duties as a mother and wife while she was recovering.
She went to her husband with her concerns on the September 20 episode of “Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.”
“Part of me wants to just back out,” Lowell said.
Baltierra, 30, had an unexpected reaction to his wife, saying: “You’re crazy. Why the hell would you want to back out, bro?”
Lowell said she was. worried. “Because I’m nervous and I have to have a pee bag for 10 days and I also don’t like putting everything on you,” she explained.
“It’s not like this is the first time you’ve been helpless,” Baltierra shot back.
Lowell asked for clarification, and Baltierra brought up his wife going to treatment and dealing with her mental health. She has suffered from anxiety and depression in the past.
“I have had you take on the brunt of a lot of s***,” Lowell told Baltierra. “Having you do everything doesn’t make me feel good. I feel like we’re a team so we help each other.”
Baltierra said his wife’s concerns were valid, but he reassured her — in his own way — that she doesn’t have to be worried about him taking care of their three children and the home while she heals from surgery.
“No one chooses to be helpless. You’re in a situation that you can’t control,” Baltierra said. “You’re getting your vagina cut open so now you need help. I mean, god damn. I wouldn’t feel bad if I had to get my d*** cut open.”
“I’d be like, girl I’m sorry. Have fun with all the kids for the day I’ll be upstairs while I recover,” he continued. “Give yourself a little bit of slack, girl.”
