TBH, we're pretty used to seeing the Kardashians in the headlines, but this latest story from the Kardashian-Barker home really shocked us to our core! And after a rollercoaster of a week full of emergencies, Kourtney is finally ready to share an update on the condition of her husband. Here's the full scoop...

For those who missed it, reports of Travis's rushed hospitalization spread like wildfire on the internet, with millions worried about the health of the legendary rocker. And now that things appear to be looking up, Kourtney hit up Insta stories to give an update to the fans. "Oh what a scary and emotional week it has been. Our health is everything and sometimes we take for granted how quickly it can change," the newlywed confessed. "Travis and I went in for a routine endoscopy together and he ended up with severe, life-threatening pancreatitis." What started as a simple medical procedure quickly spiraled into a nightmare for Kourt and Travis, but luckily they had loads of people rallying behind them during the difficult time. "I am so thankful to our specialists, doctors, and nurses at Cedars Sinai for taking such wonderful care of my husband and me during our stay," the thankful wife gushed, also throwing thanks to the kind words and prayers she received from fans.

Unfortunately, the story didn't end there. And like most things in the Kardashian world, the situation didn't come without some negative tabloid attention. "And to the paparazzi who sold pictures of me "out and about" while my husband was in the hospital fighting for his life...these were photos actually taken weeks ago," Kourtney clapped back on her Instagram story. "I didn't forget about you. A new level of low, monetizing off of our nightmare. Really savagely uncool when I actually didn't leave his side," she continued. "Shame on you."

Paparazzi drama aside, we're happy to report that this medical rollercoaster seems to be over for the lovebirds. And we're sending tons of love Kourt and Travis's way! Be sure to check back soon for more updates from your fave celebs...
