Lucy Mecklenburgh has revealed that her son Roman now has to use an inhaler twice a day after he was rushed to hospital in a frightening state.
An ex-TOWIE star shared earlier this week the story of how Roman, her infant son, became blue from his cot.
Poor Roman was rushed to hospital and placed on a ventilator.
Lucy, who shares her 18-month-old son with her fiancé Ryan Thomas, said he’s now back to his “cheeky” self but is still suffering from his frightening hospital stint.
That’s because young Roman is having to rely on his inhaler and needs it twice a day, despite the little one not liking the oxygen device.
Posting an Instagram video of Roman playing with his inhaler, she said: “I’m trying to get him used to his inhaler, he needs it twice a day now but he doesn’t like it.”
Mum Lucy asked him if he wanted to put some stickers on the inhaler before handing it to one of his teddy bears.
The reality star said: “I am hoping he gets used to it.”
Captioning the video, she wrote: “He now needs an inhaler twice a day but he hates it.”
Lucy hasn’t revealed what kind of condition Roman was suffering from when he was taken to hospital, but she admitted she had taken a break from social media due to Roman’s poor health.
Lucy shared with her fans on Thursday that she was taking a break from social media following the hospital scare.
Lucy shared a sad photo of Roman connected to wires in his hospital room.
“Just over a week ago I found Roman blue in his cot – probably every parent’s worst nightmare.
“Without going into too much detail it ended up with Roman being transferred to St Mary’s London intensive care being put on a ventilator.
“Thankfully we are now all home and Roman is back to his cheeky self.”
Lucy concluded the post by thanking the hospital and all the charities that support the NHS for their help.
“I am eternally grateful to the ambulance service for arriving so quickly, to Basildon hospital, the CATS team (children action transport services) St Mary’s London PICU * Cosmic charity (Caring for babies & children in intensive care).
“We are grateful to the NHS and all of the charities that support it.”
