Jessie James Decker On 2-Year-Old’s Chronic Illness: ‘It’s Scary’

Jessie James Decker‘s son is sharing how she is coping with her son’s chronic illness.

Decker posted a photo to Instagram of her 2-year-old son, Forrest, in a hospital bed while hooked up to a nebulizer.

“Went to the hospital again last night. 3rd time in 6 weeks,” Decker captioned the post.

“Every time he gets a tiny cold he starts wheezing and his oxygen levels drop and heart rate goes up. Ultimately I’m being told he has Asthma even though he’s pretty young to diagnose.”

“It’s scary to watch his vitals drop, hear his grunting and see his chest struggling so much to take a breath. After he threw up for the third time (I think from coughing so much) (no fever) I knew it was time to take him in.”

Decker, who shares daughter Vivianne, 6, and Eric Jr., 5, with her husband, Eric Decker, trusted her gut and decided to take Forrest to the hospital last week when he began having trouble breathing and started throwing up.

Decker says the doctors are still attempting to figure out what is triggering Forrest’s breathing episodes.

“So confusing for a parent to have this issue and just not know what to do or why it’s happening,” she writes.

James states that she decided to share details about Forrest’s health because she has found an amazing community of mom’s online.

“He was born full term and 9 lbs and no issues until last year and becoming more chronic. He’s a champ but it breaks my heart when he tells me ‘mommy my chest hurts’ in his sad little voice.”

“So thank you. It’s that kind of mamas helping mamas community on here I really appreciate,” she writes.
