Back in January, Teen Mom 2's Kailyn Lowry opted to undergo plastic surgery.
When she left for the procedure in Miami, her husband, Javi Marroquin was deployed by the Airforce.
"Javi’s been gone,” a source told OK!.
“Javi and Kailyn left at the same time — he left when she left for Miami.”
Lowry got a butt lift, liposuction and a tummy tuck, which she permitted the surgeon to stream live on Snapchat.
Since then, Lowry has been photographed recovering in Miami and looking like she's in a whole lotta pain.
Last week, the reality star Instagram'd a photo of herself wearing a waist cincher.
Unfortunately, Marroquin can't be in touch with his wife as frequently as he would like because he's in the armed forces and he has a job to do.
“Javi’s been MIA [from social media] because he’s eight hours ahead and doesn’t always have Wifi everywhere he goes,” the source added.
“It’s hard for Kail, but I wouldn’t say she’s sad.
“They’ve been through this before. It doesn’t make it any easier on her, but she understands this is part of his job and how he provides for their family.”
Regardless, Lowry knows that Marroquin's job requires him to be deployed.
“She’s proud of him," the source added.
"It's not easy, but they are handling it the best that they can."
