Former Bachelor star Catherine Lowe is opening up about her son Isaiah’s scary visit to the ICU.
The mother of two and her husband, former Bachelor star Sean Lowe, both shared on Instagram that their 5-month-old was suffering from bronchiolitis.
“Long story short — we took our little dude to the pediatrician yesterday for a bad cough he developed and ended up in the pediatric ICU,” Sean wrote at the time.
“We’re still here and probably will be for a couple more days. Isaiah’s got bronchiolitis and his little body is having a tough time getting enough oxygen.”
Though it was terrifying for both mom and dad, Catherine told Entertainment Tonight she had a lot of trust in the amazing doctors and nurses who took care of their son.
“It is scary, definitely, to have your child be that level of sick, but I trusted the doctors, and he’s great now, and we are so excited to spend his first Christmas doing all the fun things and making sure that everyone in our lives feels connected to us,” she said.
“I’m really grateful that my family is healthy now, and that we just get to enjoy the holiday season together.”
Catherine and Sean are especially excited to celebrate Christmas because their oldest son, 2-year-old Samuel, understands what’s going on this year.
“I’m actually feeling much more festive this season because Samuel knows a little bit more of what’s going on, and so, it’s exciting,” Catherine said.
“We get to do a lot more holiday things together that mean more. It’s not just for Sean and me, it’s now for Samuel. And obviously Isaiah doesn’t really know what’s going on, but we still get to do these fun family things.”
She continued, “I’m so enjoying this time with my family. Isaiah is such a joy, and he’s continuing to be so, and I haven’t really thought about the actual, tangible things of creating more of a family.”
We’re so happy to hear everyone’s doing well!
