Amber Back in Jail After Having Surgery

Amber was arrested Thursday and accused of not fulfilling her court ordered rehab program's requirements. According to The Herald Bulletin Amber was not following the rules of her rehab while recovering from surgery. Looks like she will be spending Mother's Day and her Birthday in Jail.


Amber missed one of her rehab meetings claiming the doctor and the rehab told her to take it easy.

A source close to Amber tells alltheteenmoms.com that she had her Gallbladder removed.

Amber was not completely kicked out of her program but she will have to stay in jail until next week while the court reviews her case. Her lawyer also said "It's not uncommon to give a sanction in jail to get them back on track." Referring to drug court participants.

UPDATE:
Amber's surgery took place around a month ago. She missed a recent Rehab meeting claiming to still be on bed rest. Upon further investigation by the rehab facility Amber was well enough to attend her meeting.

I'm worried for Amber, this is the second time there has been a disturbance in her rehabilitation in just a few months. She still has a long way to go.

UPDATE #2:
Amber's brother Shawn insists that Amber was given permission to take it easy for a few weeks and that she did not have to attend meetings during that time. He also said she was not able to take any pain medication for her surgery either. He says that she should not be in jail right now.

    1. Gary is immature and not a great parent. Leah spends more time @ the babysitters than people know about.

      Just read Gary's tweets to see his lack of judgement. The guy has very little common sense, and can't spell, and does not know how to make a sentence coherent. He will pass all these traits on to Leah, unless someone intervenes.

      The biggest issue with Gary is that he just doesn't learn. You think he make be maturing, and then he tweets that he "need some ass ass ass ass ass. Been a day or 2". The guy has a severe lack of boundaries. He doesn't know where healthy limits are - and this is physically evident in his current weight.

      All these issues will effect Leah.

      Leah probably WOULD have been happy if she had the chance to be adopted. Look at Carly! Seriously!

      All I am saying is that Gary has significant issues, and Leah would have been better off with a family that could actually love and provide for her. (Not provide just diapers, but actually guide her, and teach her tact, and give her opportunities.).

    2. Ok but without Gary, Leah would be in a foster home, at least with Gary, Leah can see family members.

      I read Gary's tweets AND facebook, And Gary IS providing for Leah, he HAS a huge house of his own and Leah has her own bdrm and playroom.
      Of course she has babysitters, Not all parents spend 24/7 with their kids, Parents need those extra special hours a week out with friends.

      Leah's not always with a babysitter. Plus she IS in school, she most likely goes to school for 8 hrs, and at a babysitter while Gary works. that's normal.

      Delete
    3. But does Gary work?

      And she would not be in a foster home if they had chosen ADOPTION for her.

      Look at Carly's parents! They are awesome to her! And she will have a great, STABLE life.

      I agree that parents need time for themselves - but Gary does seem to spend more time with friends than with his daughter.

      And the bigger concern is that he can't even seem to make wise decisions for himself, so how can he be trusted to make good decisions for Leah?

  6. Yes I agree that she has a lot of issues but for those who have never been in her shoes we shouldn't be talking so badly. I know how it feels to suffer from a form of mental illness such as depression and anxiety. When you let it get to bad it can turn you into drugs or alcohol. When you are that far down and you feel there is no hope anymore you give into those bad things not caring anymore. I hope she recovers and gets better soon. I am just saying I know how hard it is and I hope people will understand just a bit. On the other hand there comes a point where you must finally realize that there is something majorly wrong and must take control of your life. It takes awhile and a lot of strength to do so.

  8. Amber may not be the most mature person, however this isn't a case of needing to "grow up". Addiction isn't somethng you "grow up" from. It's an illness that takes a lot of very difficult work, in order to regain control. Besides it's sort of the courts fault that this happened. If they are going to allow a recovering addict pain meds, they should've restricted her access to the drugs and had them administered by someone else.

  9. I am a person that suffers from bipolar. You can turn to your therapist when you feel as if you need help. But i will am thamkful Leah has a father that has been taking care of her. Sometimes mommys have problems an the best is just visitation. Amber as we have all seen has alot of different problems an demons that we will never know. We cant judge her just because she had a baby.we have to be thankful that Leah is being loved.

    1. Just because Amber's problems are 'more outward' does not make Gary a good father.

      He has talked about (basically) driving recklessly, or at the very least - driving without obeying the rules. When you have so many points that you loose your licence... That is not just a speeding ticket or two. MOREOVER he has bragged about this several times.

      Driving like that places Leah, and others at risk.

      Other behaviors are just as alarming. One could argue that Gary is a huge fame whore. And that he lacks self control. He doesn't seems to be able to maintain stability. The list goes on and on.

      One might ask what all he has exposed Leah to.

      How often has Gary tweeted that he is bored? Where is Leah? Why doesn't he clean the house, or (if Leah is sleeping) build a fort to surprise her with when she wakes up? Etc.

      I guess it is good that Gary stepped up - but he isn't a great Dad. Not really.

  11. Addiction is a hard thing to over come, I get that, I was once an addict yet when I found out that I was preggo, I stopped cold turkey for my childs sake. She needs a good support system and she needs to realize that her Daughter is her reason to stop if not for herself. I agree it is not a matter of just "growing up" it is a matter of, she needs a purpose.

  13. Oh my gosh, having her GALLBLADDER REMOVED?!?! I know someone who had to do that and it's unbelievably painful! Poor girl, I can't say I blame her if she did some other kind of drug besides painkillers to help with it. I really hope she gets her life together. Even though she's crazy and is abusive to Gary, there is no doubt that she loves her little girl. I hope she gets the help she needs to snap her back to reality.

    1. I have personally had my gallbladder out and it is not that painful. Yes, it hurts and she should be allowed to take pain medication. I think the point here is that she was abusing the pain medication or using non-prescribed medication.

    2. yea um no a friend of mine was in bed for 2 weeks after have his removed sooo....that may be ur pain tolerance but not every1 the same person...i just flicked my hand did u feel it...didnt think so...god this is why i hate ppl that have no reasoning to some circumstances u ppl think u know all just cause u experienced somthing of the same as some1 else.

    2. You can't sit there and say that having your gullbladder removed isn't painful. I had mine removed just under a month ago, and I STILL get pains from it. Everyone's pain tolerance is different. And just because people you know is back to work in 3 days after surgery doesn't mean thats the same way with everyone, I have news for you, gull bladder is a major surgery. Ambers case needs to be reevaluated. And for those of you who think its not painful, grow up, seriously. Once again, it's all about pain tolerance, and how the surgery went!!

      Gary doesn't seem to be taking very good care of Leah... even in the show.. where was she half the time when he was sitting on his rear end? I hardly ever see her at all... He needs to grow up and start taking more responsibilities.

  16. I'm sorry but I had my gallbladder out and ended up having to stay in the hospital I was so sick. When I got home I could hardly move. I think the courts should evaluate her situation. I feel sorry for her having all the hard ships, hope she can find the light out of the darkness and overcome the troubles. Her baby is taken care of by a wonderful father and she is the most important person.

  17. It's like this, if you know you are bipolar and have a mental illness that is destructive, why the hell would you want to be so selfish as to have a child and not give it up for adoption since it would be obvious you are going to destroy that child's life? Bipolar, addiction, is just an excuse to be a shit.

    1. I have depression which is a mental illness and a 7 month old daughter I think I'm doing pretty damn good for myself. Just cuz u have a mental illness doesn't mean u don't deserve children, amber deserves leah she just needs to fix herself for her 1st. And if u think its an excuse u try to deal with the constant highs and lows that come from being bipolar my father was and he was medicated and still became an addict and an alcoholic. So until u really know Wat a mental illness can do to u don't try to say we shouldn't have kids or that its an excuse. O and theres also a possibility she wasnt depressed or manic (bipolar) before her child sometimes having children can cause that.

      Delete
    2. The thing is that mental illness DOES effect children, and I would argue that your Dad's mental illness, although medicated, still resulted in damaging you.

      Children born to people with mental illness are more likely to become mentally ill themselves. The way I see it, when you KNOW you suffer from mental illness - why would you purposely chose to have a biological child KNOWING that you are basically going to condemn them to a hard life?

      People with mental illness are more likely to be poor etc. It is not responcible for them to have children.

      I knew someone who was suicidal. She NEEDED to have a baby. Why? She hated life? So it is fair for her to have a child? She was not doing what was best for the baby. She was doing what was best for herself. SHE wanted to feel loved - the child's needs were secondary...

    3. Depression runs in my family. My aunt committed suicide. My grandpa tried and my mom had to wrestle a razor out of his hand. My mom had it. And when I was young I was emotionally abused by my teacher, which is what doctors think sent off my depression. I was severely depressed for awhile. To the point of having really intense suicidal thoughts. My mom has been on medication to help her. And as soon as my best friend told my parents about the things I was saying. I got years of therapy. Now i'm 18 and haven't had a single time when I wish I wasn't alive since I was 9 years old. I am full of life. And just because I have been depressed doesn't mean that I shouldn't have kids. Since it does run in my family it is something that I certainly need to look out for. And when I do have children to understand the signs, to get them help.

      And for the lady above me about her dad. I know that situation all to well. My mom's dad was bipolar and had depression and became an alcoholic. I didn't know him because he died when I was a baby. But I have seen how much effects it has had on my mama. I am very sorry about that. But always remember that even though you suffer from depression you can still be a great mom, and I bet you are because you can understand things a lot differently than other people. From suffering from depression now I find myself being an extremely positive person. Part of therapy and trying to recognize the good in things and that is how I live my life now.
      And Happy Early Mothers Day to you (:

  18. I have a friend that is bipolar and has destroyed all 5 of her children's lives. They all have abandonment issues due to periods of time their mother wanted to "check out" of her life responsibilities, they even ended up in foster homes for a long stint, and she chose to drag them all over the country on many different occasions. On top of that, she had addiction problems. Seriously, just hanging onto the children and not letting them be adopted into a home that could really care for them properly is just SELFISH!

  28. I read a more detailed account of Ambers current situation one another site and had to comment. First of all, the gallbladder surgery she underwent was laproscopic, in other words, non-invasive, meaning there was no incision at all.
    The issue at hand is a result of Amber missing her mandatory, court-ordered drug test, claiming that she was ordered by her physician to remain on bed rest for three weeks following the procedure. Here drug court advisor found her claim suspicious and upon contacting Ambers doctor for verification, discovered it was not true.
    I have been a fan of Amber all along but at this point, here lack of credibility as well character and integrity as well as her manipulative nature are showing her true colors. . . sadly! Enough is enough!

    1. Laproscopic involves multiple smaller incisions, actually. I had my GB removed that way and have 5 separate scars, the biggest being about a 1.5 inches long. The recover was painful. I was in the hospital for a total of 5 days. I was given heavy pain medication which if I was someone with an addiction I wouldnt feel comfortable taking. I have a high pain tolerance and was still in bed (actually on the couch) for well over a week.
      I guess the fact is, everyones surgery experience is different. My mother had the same surgery 6 months later at a different hospital/different doctor and I was shocked they only let her stay in the hospital for 4 hours Post-op. Her recovery was horrible and she was in pain for weeks if not months....

  29. The problem here is: AMBER LIED.

    Her doctor said she was well enough to go. She has a couple of options that would have worked:
    1 - Convince her doctor that she really was in too much pain to go. Beg, Plead, Cry - whatever. But get the doctor's approval.
    2- Go to the emergency, and get any doctor's note or whatever so that her absense from the court mandated programs were excused. When it is a LEGAL issue, you need a paper trail, and any idiot knows that.
    3-Go to the program for as short of a time as possible. Explain that the pain is intense, and she needs to get home.

    I am sure there were other options available as well.

    I bet that she claims later that it was a 'misunderstanding' where she thought she was allowed to stay home, and did not understand that her doctor had 'cleared' her.

    Why is it she can't spend any holidays with Leah? Mother's day and her birthday. Gone. I bet she plays the poor me card, which is silly, because she did this to herself.

    This is a LEGAL issue - and she should know that she just can't lie and mislead and manipulate these people. But that is part of her issues - avoiding responcibility...

    I hope Amber gets better - I believe she can, and I believe she 'wants' to.

    Good luck, Amber.

  30. I had to have my Gallbladder taken out when I was 6 months pregnant because it was serious. It was really painful and it took about a week to recover. But everyone has different pain tolerance. Also, if they gave her the meds for the pain she should have been allowed to take them with out a problem.

    1. pain tolerance is different in everyone. She may have been in worse pain than some but could have been in less pain than others. As a mother i feel that Gary is being a great dad! He could use some improvements but what parent cant? i believe there is not a person or parent out there that can say he is a terrible person or father! he stepped up and is doing what is right and unless you are walking in his shoes you dont know what is really going on. You only know what is being said/tweeted. Everyone can make their own judgments by what is being said but what about what isnt being said?? No one will ever know the whole story! As far as not knowing how to spell and the stuff like that a "good parent" isnt about knowing how to spell its about whats in the heart!! And she will learn how to spell and everything else like that while she is in school. As far as Amber i hope she gets through this. She has made mistakes and she needs to learn from them plain and simple. Addiction is hard but i personally believe with the right kind of help and treatment anyone can pull through it if they are willing. Jail sentence will do nothing for her.

  32. havin a mental disorder (whatever it may be) does NOT mean that you shouldn't have children. i'm bipolar, have a severe anxiety disorder, severe depression, n ptsd but the doctors never ONCE said that it was best for me to give up my children. if you think about it....if somebody ALREADY has depression n then gives up their child it'll mess with their depression even more. the best thong for somebody with depression is to be with people who love n support them n can make them happy, n idc who you are or what you think, but that person's CHILD ultimately loves them n is always lookin up to them. therefore the person sufferin from depression SHOULD at the very least want to better themself for their child. amber has already been on suicide wath once while in jail, the last thing she needs is to hear how crappy of a job she is doin. if you don't like her, then just don't say anythin. most of us as kids were told "if you can't say somehhin nice, then don't say anythin at all" n i think we ALL should follow that bit of advice....especially when it comes to the TEEN MOMS. yes, they made a mistake, but we're only human. they have all been strong enough NOT to have an abortion n take responsibility for their actions. they're only teenagers for god sakes, at least it's not like she's got full custody n high around her child. there are so many OLDER parents that do that, but nonody complains about that. bottom line, we need to SUPPORT ALL TEEN MOMS that are both on tv n just the normal teens who aren't on tv. bein a mom is hard enough, n depression makes you feel evwn worse, the last thing AnY woman need is tobe put down.....so yall if you cant say anythin nice, just keep your mouth shut! plain n simple

    2. Of course the doctors did not tell you NOT to have children - they could have been sued if they did! But I sure as hell bet that several of them were thinking it!

  33. Amber's family always says she was in the right and everyone else was wrong.Just like they said that she had put the money aside for Leah (not true)and all the other lies she told.

    That is partly why Amber thinks she can get away with this stuf, because her family blindly accepts her lies and supports her.

    She needs to own up to her failings. It is the only way she will get better. Her family is enabling her behavior.

  36. I have had depression all of my life. It is sometimes severe but it doesn't mean I can't have a normal life. The key is to realize what I am dealing with and working on developing coping skills for when I am feeling bad. I don't think Amber is taking her addiction problems seriously if she won't stay in her rehab long enough to get some benefit from it

    Some of the comments here are stigmatizing mental illness. We are still people and just because one person with mental illness does something negative doesn't mean all people with mental illness will do the same thing.

    My concerns are for Leah, because Gary and Amber fight in front of her and one can see how upset she gets when they do that. I hope they can get their acts together if they want to raise her themselves.
