“Well not the Christmas we were expecting… for about a month these poor kiddos have been on and off sick and what I thought was a normal cold Wyatt turned for the worst Christmas morning with a high fever and very lethargic. Turns out he has an pneumonia so we ended up spending the night at the children’s hospital continuing to give him oxygen for his breathing,” she wrote.
The hairstylist further added how the toddler battled the disease with bravery. “This guy is a trooper!!!! He was so brave and the children’s hospital was above and beyond even giving us our very own tree to decorate.”
