Christina Hall opens up about her 6-year-old son, Brayden’s ‘Emergency’ Appendectomy surgery on Sunday, adding he is recovering at the hospital after a ‘scarry 12 hours’ operation.
On a recent post on Instagram, Christina, 38, described her son’s scary emergency surgery as she wrote, “Scary 12 hours for us parents + step parents,” in the caption with a picture of her son lying in a hospital bed.
“After being admitted to the ER, Brayden had to have an emergency appendectomy as well as removal of Meckel’s diverticulum early this morning,” added the TV personality while referring to the abnormality of the small intestine. “Nothing like seeing your child in excruciating pain 😣.”.
The TV star who is also a real estate investor, went on saying that “the surgery went well and Brayden is recovering and in good spirits,” before stating that “The entire staff at Mission Hospital was amazing and we are all grateful it was caught early.”
“Blessed to have 3 healthy + happy kids, caring family and friends and a husband who stands by my side,” the actress said. “Happy Mother’s Day everyone. 🤍.”
On the other hand, ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, 40, also penned down his son’s health on Instagram on Sunday. The now-broken couple also shares a daughter Taylor El Moussa.
“It’s been an interesting 24 hours,” he captioned his post. “Last night we were at the CHOC Gala and this morning we were at CHOC hospital waiting for Brayden to get out of surgery.”
He further detailed Brayden’s health, saying, “was extremely sick last night so Christina took him to the emergency room” and added, “It was the right call because he had to have his appendix removed and also we found out he has something rare called Meckel’s diverticulum.”
“Both issues were surgically removed and he’s recovering overnight with his mom,” continued the father of two. “He’s such a strong boy and of course he told me he’s very excited to eat real food tomorrow, he’s obsessed with food just like his daddy❤️.”
He then described the ordeal saying it was a “very scary day,” though “we all banned together as a family to get through it.”
He also thanked doctors in his post who tackled the case well, saying, “Thank you to the amazing Doctors and nurses who took such incredible care of our boy.”
Brayden’s inner circle, aware of the tribulation, also took to social media, including his stepfather Joshua Hall who is married to his mother.
El Moussa’s second wife, Heather Rae Young, took to Instagram to describe the torment as she wrote, “Today @therealtarekelmoussa and I were woken up to a call that as a parent & step parent you never want to wake up to. Christina & Josh rushed Bray to the hospital very early this AM,”
The Selling Sunset starlet re-called that moment, saying it was the “scariest day of our life but we are so thankful it was caught early.”
“The doctors and nurses at Mission Hospital were incredible & took the best care of him,” the stepmother added. “Times like these we ban together as a family. It’s been a very emotional day but he is doing well and recovering. 🤍❤️.”
Meanwhile, Josh, 41 celebrated his wife’s role as a mother in a Mother’s Day post, commending her efforts during Brayden’s tough time. “One of the kids was in some discomfort last night. Christina was tending care all night doing all she could to make them feel better and after no improvement, she made the decision to go to the hospital. And her motherly instinct was spot on and after an emergency procedure, I’m happy to say, recovery is now in process,” wrote the loving husband.
