“My precious baby boy is so strong!” Kardashian, 37, wrote in a Tuesday, January 2 Instagram post. “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 scary. I just want to thank 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 say the ambulance ride was cool! My strong saint.”
TMZ reported that the 2-year-old was admitted to an L.A. hospital Thursday, December, 28, and discharged on Saturday. According to the website, the toddler’s parents shared overnight duties.
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that usually develops following another illness, such as a cold or the flu. According to the medical website Ask Dr. Sears, the main symptoms are moderate to severe cough, labored breathing, a fever that is usually more than 102 degrees, chest pains, vomiting, blue color around the lips and face and wheezing.
Kardashian and West, who are also parents of daughter North, 4, are expecting their third child — a girl — via surrogate this month.
