Lala Kent opened up about rushing her daughter, Ocean, to the hospital after a significant health scare. The 32-year-old Vanderpump Rules star revealed during the Wednesday episode of her podcast, Give Them Lala, about her daughter’s health scare.
What Health Scare Did Lala Kent’s Daughter Experience?
According to the reality star, her 18-month-old daughter, Ocean, had difficulty breathing. Lala Kent knew her child well enough to know the tone of Ocean’s cry. On that particular day when Kent’s daughter was crying, the reality star knew something was definitely wrong with her daughter.
Kent recalled during her podcast that her daughter, Ocean, was “gasping for air like she couldn’t breathe.” Kent thought her daughter was screaming. The TV star continued by explaining that she went to pick up her child and looked over at her for a while before she decided to rush Ocean to the emergency room.
Before Lala Kent went to the hospital concerning the health scare, she put Ocean on her chest while trying to steam the shower. At the time, the star mom could hear the sound of her daughter’s breathing and knew it was not normal.
The reality star rushed her daughter to the Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. At the ER, the doctors deduced the seriousness of the situation with Ocean and wasted no time getting her diagnosed.
What Was Lala Kent’s Daughter, Ocean, Diagnosed With?
According to DailyMail, after some examination, Kent’s daughter, Ocean, was diagnosed with ‘croup.’ Mayo Clinic describes croup “as an infection of the upper airway, which obstructs breathing and causes a characteristic barking cough.”
The reality star explained that her daughter was given some medication since croup can be treated. The medication helped clear Ocean’s airways and regulated her breathing.
During the podcast, Kent continued by expressing how scared she was. Kent couldn’t keep her emotions at bay. The experience was a very scary one for her.
All Kent could think about was if her daughter would wake up. Kent is no longer with her partner, as she split up with Randall Emmett in 2021 because he had been reportedly unfaithful.
The mom of one has to look after the child and do that alone, which is so hard on her.
The doctors approved Kent and her daughter going home the night Ocean was rushed into the hospital. Kent revealed that her daughter, Ocean, has been recovering perfectly since the health scare.
