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!
