Breaking Amish matriarch Mama Mary Schmucker is currently recovering after having surgery earlier this week. She was previously hospitalized in January for issues stemming from a hernia, but she was later released and seemed to be doing well enough to require no further medical attention. But the Facebook page for her son Abe and daughter-in-law Rebecca revealed on Sunday that she did need surgery after all.
The page stated that Mary’s surgery was “for the issue she had a while ago” and then added, “She had to regain strength to be able to handle the surgery.”
Mary and the Abe and Rebecca page have been updating Facebook fans throughout and we’ve compiled a timeline from before surgery until yesterday:
MARCH 29 – Abe and Rebecca: Our wonderful Momma Mary is going on for surgery this week! We will keep you updated on her condition and her progress!! We will need many prayers and we thank all of you for supporting our family through everything!!
MARCH 29 – Abe and Rebecca: If you want to send mom “Get Well” cards you can send them to P.O. Box 133 Punxsy Pa 15767
That’s our P.O. Box but we are the only ones that will be able to take her the mail so it will make it easier than having people sending it to her house. Thank you for understanding!!
Ps. Please do NOT send cash!! Thank you!
