What happened to Sarah Forgany?

In March 2023, Sarah began providing regular updates via her Facebook page to let viewers know that she was in the hospital. Although she kept viewers aware of the fact that she was in the hospital, Sarah didn't explain exactly what she was being treated for.

In her first post, she announced that she had to cut her vacation to Italy short because of an unexpected hospital stay, and eventually wound up being transferred back to the U.S. for additional treatment.

"First memory of Venice, Italy … landing in the ER for several days," she wrote in the post. "Unfortunately I had to cut my vacation short and fly back to the U.S. to be admitted to a hospital here. I’m thankful for the Italian hospital and doctors who got me through some dark days but I’m so glad I was able to return to the U.S. ASAP to continue my treatment here."

In a follow-up post a few days later, Sarah said that she was watching the Oscars live, which was the first time she had done so in years. Being cooped up in a hospital room for days on end, though, she didn't have much else to do.

On March 17, 2023, Sarah said that she was out of the hospital and headed home just in time for the bluebonnets to sprout in Texas.

However, on June 5, Sarah's family posted an update on Facebook to share that Sarah was back in the hospital. "To all of Sarah’s beloved viewers," it reads, "Sarah ran into complications during her recovery from surgery yesterday morning. She’s currently in ICU on a ventilator.

"We have no clue how long she will be here — doctors expect her recovery to take weeks. She is in good spirits and keeping the faith, but we would sincerely appreciate all your prayers and best wishes for a speedy recovery."

Fans are wishing Sarah well.

Although they don't know exactly what's wrong with Sarah, her fans have weighed in under her post to wish her a speedy recovery.

"Sarah is an incredibly kind and dedicated member of our community. Sending love and strength to her, her family, and the whole medical team," one person wrote.

"Praying for healing and recovery for Sarah. Sending love to her family," wrote another.

Fans are clearly hoping that Sarah will eventually make it back to the airwaves. More importantly, though, they want her to take the time she needs to recover from whatever health issue she is dealing with.
