Teddi Mellencamp's 5-month-old daughter, Dove, is recovering from neurosurgery.
On Thursday, the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star thanked her fans on Instagram for their prayers while giving a brief update.
"Baby Dove had a successful surgery. So much gratitude to her amazing surgeons Dr. Danielpour and Dr. Urata and all the loving nurses that will continue to help us care for her as she recovers," Teddi said. "We are forever grateful."
Teddi, as expected, had "fears and anxiety" prior to the surgery.
Several weeks ago, Teddi and her husband, Edwin Arroyave, announced that Dove would undergo neurosurgery for Lambdoid Craniosynostosis, a premature fusion of the bones in an infant's skull.
"Life is always going to punch you in the face," Edwin wrote in an emotional Instagram post on July 7. "It happens every time. Right when you're about to experience blessing and fulfillment in life, something comes along that threatens to bring you down. Those challenges can shape us into who we're meant to be, or they can scare us into going back to who we used to be. I feel that lately more than ever. When it comes to business, the challenges and tests seem bearable. But when it comes to the people I love most, the challenges test me."
