He had actually been in and out of the hospital for quite some time while doctors tried to figure out what was causing his being sick. The family traveled to Austin, Texas from their hometown of West Monroe, Louisiana to see a pediatric urologist for more tests and a procedure, which looked like it was going to help him, and just in the nick of time.
Whatever was going on with River could have left “lasting damage on his kidneys” and thanks to the doctors and support of friends and family, River is on the road to getting back to being 100% healthy.
On Wednesday (Nov. 30), Jessica revealed that River was about to go in for his second procedure and asked fans for their prayers. In an Instagram post on Thursday (Dec. 1), she revealed this wouldn’t be the last procedure, but it did go extremely well.
“Procedure went well, we’ll have to come back in 2 months for next one,” she captioned the photo of River in the hospital. “Then hopefully River will be done and we can just monitor everything for a few years without any major surgery!”
We will continue to pray for River’s recovery.
