In a new Instagram post on Thursday night, Zach and Whitney shared a sad update about their new little one. They posted several photos of the baby all hooked up in the NICU. They write, “Last night, little J had a rough night. His oxygen levels continued dropping, and his right lung collapsed. They intubated and put him on a ventilator. He has a little chest tube on the side of his chest for the collapse. ”
Then, they continue:
“Today, Jadon has been steadily improving throughout the day, and he looks so much more peaceful. Watching him struggle to breathe the past couple days has been so heartbreaking, but now to see the turnaround this morning was a miracle! We are incredibly grateful for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and for all of the work they have poured into our baby boy. We have been blessed with the kindest doctors and nurses who are always smiling, always willing to take the time to explain every step, and they even stopped to pray with us in the scary moments.”
Bringing Up Bates fans send encouragement to Zach, Whitney, and Jadon.
Though this is a difficult time for the Bates family, they are getting lots of love and support on social media. In response to the couple’s latest post, fans are saying that they are praying for the family. They hope that Jadon is okay after receiving the care he needs while at the hospital.
