Musician Reid Perry from the Grammy-award winning country group The Band Perry has undergone an emergency appendectomy.

Perry, 28, documented the trip to the hospital on his Instagram Stories, starting with a photo which appeared to show him arriving at the UCLA Emergency Department. “Kind of a bad time for this to happen right now,” Perry wrote over the image of a UCLA sign, circling the word “emergency.”

Four hours later, the musician posted a snap of what appeared to be his hospital room. Over the photo he wrote the words “appendectomy” and “under the ” numerous times and also added, “I never get sick, but when I do, they take body parts away.”

In a third photo, Perry posted a selfie of himself in a hospital gown over which he wrote, “getting bored while going crazy” and “I keep thinking about that opening scene from TWD.” (The abbreviation could be a reference to the zombie show The Walking Deadwhich begins with a character waking up alone in a deserted hospital.)

Perry also added that he was “gonna cop a few of these,” drawing an arrow to his hospital gown.

Perry later posted two short videos which showed him taking off his hospital ID bracelet with a knife, the second of which read, “discharged.”

A rep for The Band Perry did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment on Perry’s condition.

On Saturday, Perry’s brother and bandmate Neil Perry shared a message on Instagram about Reid’s emergency surgery, writing that he was “so thankful that my brother is feeling better today after a mild health scare.”

“Family is the most important thing in this world. and i can’t say enough about how much i respect and look up to my big brother. he’s the strongest person i kno,” Neil, 27, continued.

“Reid is the quintessential middle kid — never gets too down // never gets too high. he always stays in that middle ground of emotion and attitude (and that’s the best place to b),” the musician added. “That’s how he rides out every situation life throws at him with strength and calm. and that is one of the things i try to apply to my own life looking at his. #keepfamilyfirst.”

The Band Perry — which also includes Reid and Neil’s 34-year-old sister Kimberly — rose to fame in 2010 with their ubiquitous breakout ballad “If I Die Young.” They released two albums — a self-titled LP in 2010, then Pioneer in 2013 — and, in 2015, took home the Best Country Duo/Group Performance Grammy for “Gentle on My Mind,” their contribution to the soundtrack for the Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me documentary.

In February, the trio dropped the new track “Stay in the Dark,” the first single off their upcoming crossover pop album My Bad Imagination, due later this year.

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson are taking their bond into the spotlight — for Halloween!

The duo were all smiles on Saturday night at Maxim’s Halloween party in Los Angeles, posing for photographers in their respective costumes: a “Biker Boy” for Jackson, and a “Fembot” (of Austin Powers fame) for his companion.

“Fembot – Biker Boy take Halloween 🎃,” Olympios, 24, captioned an Instagram snap of the twosome showing off their outfits. Hers included a short silver skirt with matching bra top, choker and stilettos, plus a sheer pink jacket decorated with feathers and coordinating headband.

“This fembot captured me tonight! 🌹” Jackson wrote on Instagram, sharing the same photo.

Earlier this month, Jackson opened up to reporters about his friendship with Olympios despite the sex scandal that led Bachelor in Paradise to delay filming over the summer.

“In the media — the media wanted black versus white. They wanted angry black guy, they wanted this little white girl. But in reality, both of us were put against each other,” he said at the time.

He explained, “It was one of those things that people want us not to be friends. They want to paint a particular narrative. Even now the narrative is they’re friends now. It’s like, ‘Oh, it’s fake.’ It’s always you’re damned if you do, you’re damned if you don’t.”

The pair have been spotted out and about multiple times over the past few months, leaving TAO restaurant in Hollywood together in late September and even sharing a friendly embrace in late August.

Said Jackson of Olympios earlier this month, “I have the utmost respect for her, nothing but love for her. She’s back home right now and next week we’re going out, we’re having fun. She’s my homie, straight-up homie.”

Billie Lourd‘s latest birthday tribute to Carrie Fisher is something she’ll carry with her for the rest of her life.

The 25-year-old actress honored her late mother on the latter’s birthday Saturday, sharing an Instagram gallery of her new celestial ankle tattoo that closely resembles the one Fisher had in the same spot.

“For @praisethelourd. Tribute for her mom today, on her birthday,” Los Angeles-area tattoo artist Doctor Woo captioned a black-and-white version of the same snap posted by Lourd.

The American Horror Story: Cult star’s Instagram gallery also included a throwback photo, showing Fisher’s colorful version up close.

Along with posting her new ink and a sweet throwback photo with Fisher, Lourd continued the birthday celebrations with a cake — decorated only to say “HAAA!”, which has a special meaning.

“Momby’s abridged version of the happy birthday song,” the Scream Queens alum wrote on Instagram Stories, sharing both a snap of the fruit-topped confection and one of herself and some friends with electronic cigarettes — channeling Fisher, who her daughter said was a fan of the product.

Lourd — who appeared alongside her mom in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will do so again in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi — has opened up about losing both Fisher and her beloved “Abadaba,” grandmother Debbie Reynolds, in December 2016 over the span of just two days.

“It’s completely surreal,” she admitted in September. “There’s no way to really explain it — it’s so hard to talk about. If I say I’m doing good, I’m too happy. If I say I’m not doing good, then I’m a mess.”

Added Lourd at the time, “So it’s really hard to know what to say about it because it’s so surreal and impossible to deal with.”
