Christina Haack and Tarek El Moussa's son was admitted to the hospital over the weekend, and he underwent emergency surgery.
Late on Sunday, May 8, Christina shared a snap of her 6-year-old son Brayden resting in a hospital bed after getting his appendix and a part of his small intestine removed.
"Scary 12 hours for us parents + step parents. After being admitted to the ER, Brayden had to have an emergency appendectomy as well as removal of Meckel's diverticulum early this morning. Nothing like seeing your child in excruciating pain," she said.
The "Flip or Flop" alum said Brayden is "in good spirits" and she relayed that the surgery went well.
"The entire staff at Mission Hospital was amazing and we are all grateful it was caught early," Christina continued. "Blessed to have 3 healthy + happy kids, caring family and friends and a husband who stands by my side. Happy Mother's Day everyone."
Christina's ex-husband Tarek also posted a photo of his recovering son.
"It's been an interesting 24 hours. Last night we were at the CHOC Gala and this morning we were at CHOC hospital waiting for Brayden to get out of surgery," Tarek said. "He was extremely sick last night so Christina took him to the emergency room. It turns out it was the right call because he had to have his appendix removed and also we found out he has something rare called Meckel's diverticulum. Both issues were surgically removed and he's recovering overnight with his mom."
"He's such a strong boy and of course he told me he's very excited to eat real food tomorrow, he's obsessed with food just like his daddy❤️ very scary day, but we all banned together as a family to get through it," he continued. "Thank you to the amazing Doctors and nurses who took such incredible care of our boy."
