Think whatever you want about Briana DeJesus as a Teen Mom 2 cast member.
Take the side of Javi Marroquin or Kailyn Lowry and think she is nothing but trouble, if you desire.
As a parent, however, Briana DeJesus has had it very rough of late. This cannot really be debated.
Below, we document how the MTV personality had to recently watch one daughter undergo surgery... and how she'll soon need to watch the other one go under the knife as well.
We wish her and her kids the best...
In mid-August, DeJesus shared this photo
with followers and said little Stella had just undergone a procedure.
Did She Come Out of It Okay?
Yes, although any sort of surgery is scary for an infant of course. "Stressful stressful day but Stella is resting and that’s all that matters," wrote Briana as an update.
What Was the Matter?
"She [had] septic arthritis," DeJesus told Radar Online of Stella's joint infection. "It's common in kids." (According to Wikipedia, septic arthritis is the invasion of a joint by an infectious agent resulting in joint inflammation.)
How is Stella Doing Now?
Pretty well, it seems. No complications. No follow-ups needed in the last few weeks.
But What About Nova?
The almost-seven-year old was born to Briana in 2011. Her father is Devoin Austin, who is occasionally in the picture -- and DeJesus has now revealed that Nova needs surgery of her own.
This is What Briana Tweeted on the Subject
"Nova has surgery on Friday and her bday is on Sunday and I just feel sooo bad." Darn. We feel bad, too.
