On Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 18, Kailyn Lowry struggled with raising both kids alone, while the rest of the moms experienced relatively good news.
It's not that Kailyn Lowry didn't know what to expect. If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know that she knows what the military spouse life requires of her.
Still, that doesn't mean it doesn't take an enormous toll on her.
After Javi Marroquin was shipped off for a month-long assignment, Kailyn was really battling to keep her head above water, and we felt for her.
Driving six hours in the car to hand off Isaac to Jo? At least she even had that option, but Lowry still had to take care of baby Lincoln all by herself.
This is a girl who needs one of those "Hang in There" posters.
Once again, it's a cautionary tale that becoming pregnant early in life is difficult, as we know from the many iterations of 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom.
Sobering stuff. And speaking of sober (maybe) people ...
Jenelle Evans' baby daddy Nathan Griffith was released early from jail, coming home well before his DUI sentence ended and beaming from the moment he got out.
He promised that he would be "a better boyfriend" to Jenelle and to work on himself before their baby arrived. It's like he really got the memo in jail this time.
Can he deliver? So far so good, and their reunion and conversation in the car en route home from lockup was one of the sweetest things ever on the show.
We're being serious. We just hope these two keep it up.
In West Virginia, Leah Messer's struggling daughter, Ali, finally got her wheelchair and the new apartment where wheels should be the most functional.
At a hospital in Ohio, she tested a chair, took a video to prove to the insurance company that she could drive it, and all seems to be going according to plan.
Mobile and ready to zoom around the place like there's no tomorrow, this must be a huge relief to Leah, Corey and Jeremy to have this in place.
The impact of what they've gone through and the battles ahead for Ali are far from over, but it's an important hurdle and we think they all recognize this.
Over in South Dakota, Chelsea Houska heard that Adam Lind's charges for reckless driving etc. were landing him in court, where he faces a jury trial.
That, obviously, is beyond stressful. But on the plus side, Chelsea appeared before the state cosmetology commission to address her recent breach.
She was lectured that she could not do off-the-books work like this any longer, but Houska was cleared and finally received her esthetician's license!
The hottest Teen Mom ever is going pro, baby!
