As noted by TLC, "Tammy's limited mobility forces her to rely on Amy more than she'd like to, adding to the tension that already exists just from living under the same roof."

Tammy told Louisville Courier Journal that she has coped with two blood clots, pneumonia, and several operations. In fact, she was even being placed on life support before.
