Thanksgiving without mommy. Last week, Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Baltierra shocked fans when she announced that she's decided to go back to rehab after experiencing suicidal thoughts, and even though she bravely decided to seek treatment, her husband Tyler Baltierra took to Twitter to reveal how much he missed his wife after being forced to celebrate Thanksgiving without her.
On Thursday, Nov. 23, the official Teen Mom OG Twitter account shared a video clip featuring Catelynn and her co-stars Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood, and the ladies gushed over how grateful they were to have each other as friends. But all Tyler could focus on was his wife.
My god! My wife looks absolutely beautiful in this #HappyThanksgiving @TeenMom clip! It’s going to be a rough holiday without being able to kiss her & tell her how thankful I am for her, but we have a strong resilience crafted by our past, we got this! 😉👍🏻 https://t.co/OEOrnywp4J

"My god! My wife looks absolutely beautiful in this #HappyThanksgiving Teen Mom clip! It’s going to be a rough holiday without being able to kiss her [and] tell her how thankful I am for her, but we have a strong resilience crafted by our past, we got this!" he wrote.
But it seems like Cate is doing well in her program and she was allowed to send a special message to her friends, family, and fans on Thursday evening via social media.
Happy thanksgiving! Today I am thankful for LIFE and thankful for my daughters!!!!

Last week, Tyler took to Instagram to reveal that he dropped his wife off at a treatment facility and she has already started her program.
"We just dropped her off," the 25-year-old wrote in a caption of a selfie with his wife. "We haven’t held each other [and] just cried like that for a long time. Even after 12 years, I continue to be AMAZED [sic] by her strength, vulnerability, [and] courage to get help. 'As long as I am alive, you will never be alone' — It is my call to arms [and] I will fight this war with her right by her side, we will not surrender to this…I will go to battle EVERY TIME for her!"

Catelynn announced her brave decision to seek help after she revealed that she had been experiencing some pretty scary suicidal thoughts on Nov. 17. The 25-year-old took to Twitter to let her fans know what was happening, saying "Well today I thought of every way to kill myself… so I'm going to treatment."
Shortly after, Ty also took to Twitter to announce his support. "Incredibly proud of my wife," he wrote. "When she thought she had no choices left, she reached out [and] decided to LIVE today! My life would be desolate without her in it. You are beautiful, strong, worthy, [and] loved."
Catelynn also included the hashtags #makeChesterProud, #KeepTalkingMH, and #thiswontlast in her message referencing Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington who took his own life earlier this year, and showing that she has hope for recovery with treatment. Catelynn's sweet two-year-old daughter Novalee even gave her mom a stuffed animal to keep her company while she heals. "Nova buddy is coming with me," she wrote alongside a photo of the toy in the car. "I'm gonna hold it close to my heart the whole time."

Catelynn made it clear that she's never going to give in to her urges, and will do whatever she has to to be around for her family. She tweeted out another photo of the tattoo on her arm that reads "My story isn't over yet." She got the tattoo after completing treatment for anxiety and depression in 2016 to remind herself of what she's been through. Her wonderful husband posted the same photo to show his support for his wife. We're so happy to hear that neither one will ever give up!
