Teddi Mellencamp of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spoke about her daughter’s resilience after having surgery at such a young age.
Originally she thought Dove would spend two days in NICU and the four to five more days in the hospital. She happily reported they got to leave early because the swelling went down. She said Dove passed all her markers.
The reality star said, “I am so grateful for so many things and feeling really blessed. We love you so much baby Dove and know you are going to live whatever life you dream of.”

It’s crazy how resilient kids are. Dove is going into Day 4 post neurosurgery with both eyes open. The swelling went down, she passed all her markers and we have been sent home much earlier than expected. I am so grateful for so many things and feeling really blessed. We love you so much baby Dove and know you are going to live whatever life you dream of. 🕊 #craniosynostosis
