If you’ve been keeping up with this current season of Teen Mom 2, then you know that Kailyn Lowry has been struggling in a big, big way.

Like, at this point she has to have a lifetime pass for the struggle bus, you know?

She’s been having issues with finishing up her college degree, which makes sense when you take 23 credits in one semester.

We know all about her pregnancy, which she said was high risk, and the additional stress brought on by her iffy relationship with Chris Lopez.

Throw in all the drama with Javi Marroquin, and it’s a wonder all of Kailyn’s scenes this season aren’t just her curled up in a ball in the corner, crying her eyes out.

Especially since the stuff with Javi got so intense that she felt the need to file an order of protection against him.

Last season, after Javi returned home from his deployment and found out firsthand that she’d moved on, he snuck into their house to snoop around, terrifying poor little Isaac in the process.

It was a pretty serious offense, and Kailyn must have filed it away in her memory, because when he seemed to be angry a few months later when he found out about her pregnancy, she was quick to file the order.

She did it, she explained, because he’d been sending her threatening text messages, and she didn’t want to take any chances.

But now, in a new sneak peek for tonight’s episode, it looks like she’s had a change of heart!

In the clip, she explains that while she’s still "angry" with Javi, their son, Lincoln, is going to be playing soccer soon, and with the order in place, they can’t attend his games together.

Then she calls him up to inform him that that morning, she went down to her lawyer’s office and dropped the protective order entirely.

He seems surprised, but he tells her that it’s a "relief."

"There could have been other ways around it," he says. "But this alternative … it was a little excessive, but it is what it is."

Kailyn seems to stiffen up a little at that, because as she says, the order "worked for me," but "now we’re fine."

"At the end of the day," Javi says, clearing up the air a little, "I feel like we both owed it to Lincoln that both of his parents be at his practices, take him to stuff and be civil in the same room."

Fair point.

They finish up the phone call with a "see you tomorrow," since the boys had soccer practice the next day.

And that’s that.

It’s so nice to see things work out for Kailyn for once, isn’t it?
