“She says she’s happy for me, but at the end of the day, I know it’s hard for her,” Amy says. “Tammy may not admit it, but she’s scared of being by herself. Last time she was alone by herself, she ended up pneumonia and ended up on life support.”

She adds, “I still gotta do what’s right for my family. Gage comes before Tammy, I’m sorry.” 1000-Lb. Sisters airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on TLC.
