Asking for continued prayers, Lainey added: "He still has a long way to go so please keep the prayers coming if you can as I know it's truly making all the difference in the world."

While Lainey didn't divulge her father's exact condition, her sister, Janna Wilson Sadler, revealed on her Instagram Stories that their dad is suffering from Diabetic Ketoacidosis, resulting in fungus spreading through his system.

She explained that he was treated with "extremely high" doses of anti-fungal medication, then underwent surgery to remove dead tissue, which thankfully "went well".

At the end of last month, Lainey canceled two of her shows to go and be by her father's side, and even though he is not on the mend yet, she revealed she is heading back out on the road to honor her dad.

"I know that he takes pride in hard work, so that's what I'm gonna do," she said. "So, I'll be back out on the road this weekend, singing every note for him and making him proud."
