After the girls get in his car, Leah takes a moment to speak with her ex some more outside about the difficult situation.
She tells him: “So, I know I mentioned to you about the lump in my breast.
“In case the girls say something to you or ask you, and then I just like to let you know these things, in case I do need your support.”
Despite what’s going on, Leah says she doesn’t want their kids “to even worry.”
Corey tries to assure her that he understands, telling her: “Yeah, you told them about it, I’m aware of it, so if they have any questions, I can come to you about it and let you know. That’s the best scenario.”
Toward the end of the clip, Leah reveals she’s supposed to visit with her doctor again soon but had to cancel it because she “got some upsetting news.”
The Teen Mom shares: “We just got a call from the school, and there’s been a positive case in one of the classrooms.
“Now, in-person school is shut down for at least two weeks.
“I was supposed to have a doctor’s appointment for the tumor on my breast, and I definitely canceled it for the covid scare.”
She had to postpone the appointment because she doesn’t want to “potentially expose anyone else” to the virus.
Previously, Leah explained in a confessional that her biggest fear is that she will need surgery for the tumor, and that she will need pain medication to help her through the process.
The mother-of-three was previously addicted to pain pills after an emergency c-section with her youngest daughter Addie.
Leah, who is now over six years sober, shared fears of relapsing into her pain medication addiction if she has to have surgery.
