On Tuesday's episode of Teen Mom 2, Briana DeJesus was seen rushing her daughter to the hospital. She recalled the incident to be "a very, very scary situation" because of a diagnosis that her daughter, Stella, was given at a younger age.
Every Parent’s Worst Nightmare
During Tuesday's episode, viewers saw DeJesus handle a situation that no parent wants to be in. She had to rush Stella to the hospital after she was complaining about her heart "hurting" and beating too fast. Following their hospital visit, DeJesus scheduled an appointment with a cardiologist for the following day.
DeJesus shared Stella's medical history with her mom, Roxanne, and sister, Brittany. She revealed that Stella had been previously diagnosed with having holes in her heart. During that conversation she also shared that Stella had been complaining of heart problems for about a month before going to the hospital.
The mother of two said that Stella's most recent complaint alongside the previous month set off alarm bells in her head to connect it together with her past diagnosis. She shared that when her daughter was around a week old, the doctor discovered that there were two holes in her heart.
As For Stella’s Dad?
Stella's father, Luis, has the reputation of not being around much for DeJesus and his daughter. The reality TV personality was asked about how he's handling the situation. She shared that he checked in on how Stella's doing however, he refused to attend the cardiologist appointment because filming would be going on. DeJesus admitted to being disappointed that he didn't show up for his daughter but, she wasn't shocked. She said that after handling being a single-parent for this long, it's become second nature to be by herself in situations like these.
Everything We Know About Stella
The cardiologist who treated Stella as an infant is who DeJesus went back to. They ran some tests and decided on a new course of action. The doctor shared that the holes in Stella's heart closed. Although, to understand what's going on with her heart currently, they recommended that Stella wear a heart monitor. For one month DeJesus' daughter will wear this monitor to make efforts towards getting to bottom of what's going on.
Given that this is such a serious matter, more details can be expected to come.
