Kim Kardashian Addresses Son’s Serious Health Scare

Kim Kardashian did not necessarily ring in the new year with a glass of champagne and a kiss for Kanye West.

Instead, the reality star sadly welcomed 2018 with a dash of concern and a healthy helping of worry, following a pretty serious health scare for son Saint.

According to multiple sources (including Kim herself), the two-year old was hospitalized for multiple days around Christmas due to a case of pneumonia.

TMZ insider say the toddler was admitted on Thursday and released on Saturday, with Kim and Kanye taking turns spending those two nights with him.

The poor little guy is now resting comfortably at home.

The illness appears to have come out of nowhere, as Kim happily hung out with Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez on Wednesday evening and also shared a rare family photo with her followers.

How do we know all was well at the time this was snapped?

Kanye is almost smiling in the picture!

In response to the reports about her son and his status, and due to an outpouring of support and concern, Kardashian addresses the frightening situation on Instagram.

She wrote the following:

My precious baby boy is so strong! After spending three nights in the hospital & seeing my baby get multiple IV’s and hooked up to oxygen machines, our end of year was challenging. Pneumonia is so scary.

I just want to thanks every nurse & doctor out there who works so hard around the clock.

We are so grateful for you all! He’s home and all better. He’s so resilient I’m sure he will still say the ambulance ride was cool! My strong Saint.

Pneumonia really can be a serious infection.

It impacts the lungs and typically develops following another illness, such as a cold or the flu, the latter of which can also be dangerous for little kids.

Kim and Kanye are also parents to a four-year old named North.

They are expecting their third child via surrogate any week now.

Not a lot is known about the woman who will be giving birth, but multiple reports have stated it will be another girl.

So we’re glad Saint is now feeling better and we hope both he and the family get a chance to sit back and rest over the next few days.

Lord knows, once that newborn arrives, sleep will be at a premium!

Leah Messer’s Daughter Rushed to Hospital After Frightening Health Scare

If you watched this week’s episode of Teen Mom 2, you know there was no shortage of intense drama.

In fact, there was so much packed into one episode that the three-way conflict between Kailyn Lowry, Jenelle Evans and Javi Marroquin threatened to overshadow one of the series’ most intense scenes to date.

Longtime viewers know that Leah Messer’s daughter, Ali, suffers from muscular dystrophy, which has resulted in numerous complications over the years.

In last night’s episode, Leah received a nightmare phone call from her ex, Corey Simms, informing her that Ali needed to be rushed to the hospital efter experiencing breathing difficulties.

“The reason I am calling is because Ali is having a hard time catching her breath and I think I need to take to her to emergency room because she says she couldn’t breathe,” Simms informed Leah.

“She’s fine…I think it’s a little scarier for us. But we’d rather be safe than sorry.”

Naturally, Leah rushed to the emergency room to be certain that Leah was well taken care of.

Sadly, respiratory problems are no surprise for the family, and is one of the expected complications of Ali’s rare and incurable illness.

“The disorder affects her respiratory system and progresses the older she gets,” Leah said in an interview shortly after Ali was diagnosed.

“The bigger she gets and the more weight she gains, the harder it’ll be for her muscles to carry the weight.”

The hearts of millions of fans have broken along with Leah’s, as they’ve watched Ali’s condition deteriorate over the years.

Fortunately, the 7-year-old and her family remain optimistic about her future health prospects:

Leah took to Instagram after last night’s episode aired to assure fans that all is well:

“Muscular Dystrophy won’t stop our girl! We always want her to know that if she can dream it, then she can do it! We believe in her like she believes in herself!” Messer wrote.

“We didn’t want her to feel different in a special needs class, but if it was in the best interest of Ali Girl, that’s all that mattered!”

Fans have expressed heartfelt warm wishes to Leah and Ali, who has served as an insipiration on a series loaded with cautionary tales.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online to relive the many chellenges overcome by the courageous ladies of the Messer clan.
