Martina McBride's mother Jeanne Schiff is in the hospital after undergoing emergency heart surgery. The country singer turned to social media on Friday morning (January 10) where she filled fans in on her mom's health battle.
"I've been absent on social media because I've spent the past week with my family surrounding my mom with love 24/7 in a Kansas hospital following her emergency heart surgery" McBride explains. "She's a fighter and one of the strongest women I know but she could use your prayer please. Thank you."
No further details have been shared regarding Schiff's health. Updates on McBride's family will come as information is shared.
The news comes just days after McBride's enthusiastic Instagram post looking ahead to the new year.
"The feelings I'm feeling right now going into 2020 are: gratitude, peace, excitement, hope, faith, lots and lots of love, and also the urge to push myself," she writes in the caption alongside a selfie.
"I know there have been a lot of posts about not making resolutions and not pushing yourself. You are enough. And I believe that. But I personally know that I need to push myself a little bit. And that's ok too."
She went on to share her goal to release new music this year and also possibly write a book. "These things for me have to be inspired and not just "on a schedule," she adds. "And inspiration can sometimes be hard to come by. But hey. It's 2020. I'm ready!"
