JESSIE James Decker revealed she’s had a “scary” six weeks as her 2-year-old son Forrest has been hospitalized a few times over the last couple of months with an undiagnosed illness.
She was forced to take him in again on Wednesday night after he started having trouble breathing.
Jessie, who shares daughter Vivianne and sons Forrest and Eric with husband Eric Decker, opened up about the hard few weeks in a new Instagram post;
She shared a photo of Forrest sitting at home in his Spider-Man pajamas with a breathing device strapped over his mouth and nose and around his head.
The country singer, 32, explained of the situation: “Went to the hospital again last night. 3rd time in 6 weeks. Every time he gets a tiny cold he starts wheezing and his oxygen levels drop and heart rate goes up.
“Ultimately I’m being told he has Asthma even though he’s pretty young to diagnose. It’s scary to watch his vitals drop, hear his grunting and see his chest struggling so much to take a breath.”
Continuing, she wrote: “After he threw up for the 3rd time ( I think from coughing so much) ( no fever) I knew it was time to take him in.
“…They gave him stronger meds and treatments and watched him through the night. Going to see an allergist to see if maybe something is triggering the attacks.”
Upset about the confusion of it all, Jessie said it’s been really hard not knowing how best to help her toddler.
She added that he didn’t start having problems until last year, and it’s now becoming more common.
“He’s a champ but it breaks my heart when he tells me ‘mommy my chest hurts’ in his sad little voice,” the fashion designer said.
“I don’t love to post too much of this kind of stuff because my babies are precious to me. But I’ve had some amazing advice from fellow insta moms that I genuinely appreciate.”
Thanking everyone for being so kind and supportive, she added how much she loves the community of moms on social media.
Ending the post, she wondered if anyone else has experienced this with their kids.
Jessie asked: “Other than an allergist and a specialist did this go away for your babies? I wonder if he’s now allergic to pet hair?”
Friends and fans were quick to send their love in the comments, writing heart emojis and wishes for Forrest’s quick recovery.
Some did as Jessie requested and sent some possible suggestions, with some asking if she’s considered if he’s having issues with candles, dairy, certain pets, his tonsils, perfume, or clothing detergents.
Jessie shared another photo of her young son on her Instagram Story, still with the breathing device on his face, writing: “He’s a champ.”
