Home again. Teddi MellencampThe 4-month-old daughter, Dove, left the hospital “earlier than expected” after her Thursday, July 30 brain surgery.
“It’s crazy how resilient kids are,” the Real Beverly Hills housewives star, 39, captioned a Sunday, August 2, Instagram video. “Dove enters with both eyes open day 4 after neurosurgery. The swelling subsided, she passed all her markings, and we were sent home much sooner than expected. I am so thankful for so many things and really feel blessed. We love your baby Dove so much and know you are going to live the life you dream about. ‘
In the black and white images, the Indiana native wore a mask and stared at her baby girl as Dove looked up at her. The top of the little one’s head was bandaged.
The reality star, who also shares daughter Slate (7) and son Cruz (5) with her husband, Edwin Arroyave, on July 6, revealed that their youngest daughter had been diagnosed with lambdoid craniosynostosis. The Bravo personality described the condition as’ a very rare form of non-syndromic craniosynostosis, [which] occurs when one of the lambdoid sutures on the back of the head fuses before birth. “
