The siblings reportedly took a vacation to Florida to celebrate Tammy’s improved health when things turned ugly.

Tammy nearly died in 2022 after being rushed to a hospital and placed in a medically induced coma after she stopped breathing. She later admitted that she didn’t “remember any” of what happened before she went into the coma. “I completely blacked out,” Tammy recalled during a season 4 confessional. “I woke up a week later in the hospital on life support.”
After she was discharged, the Kentucky native moved into a weight loss rehab center in Ohio. Tammy was released in February 2023 after losing enough weight to move back home.
The reality star has made steady progress with her weight loss to the degree that she no longer needs to rely on supplemental oxygen on a daily basis. Tammy reached a major milestone in May when she was seen walking without her wheelchair or the aid of a walker during a trip to an Indiana gas station with her brother, Chris Combs.
While Tammy was in rehab, she found love with fellow patient Caleb Willingham.

Sisters‘ season finale which aired on March 21, 2023.
After Tammy moved back home to Kentucky, Caleb remained in the rehab facility. She seemingly had a change of heart about their marriage, as fans noticed she changed her username on TikTok from Willingham back to her maiden name in April 2023.
Caleb later revealed in a surfaced post allegedly from his private Facebook page that Tammy allegedly wanted out of their marriage. “We are married by paper only right now. Her decision, not mine. It was more than that. I’m hurt, mad, confused, and alone even with others around. Thank you for your love, prayer, and support,” Caleb wrote.
Sadly, he died two months later, with his brother making the announcement via Facebook on June 30. Caleb was 40 years old.
Tammy explained to fans in a July 2 TikTok video that their marriage had problems, but she still loved Caleb.
“I hate getting on here and letting everybody see me like this,” Tammy told followers while weeping. “I’m having stages of grief. Yeah, we were having problems, but I loved that man. I still do.”
She continued, “I miss him like crazy, but I wanted to thank everybody for your comments. I appreciate them, I really do. We’re not going to get into details of what happened. I think that no offense, but that’s really personal.”
