On Thursday, Jan. 28, Jessie, 32, posted on Instagram a photo of the 2-year-old boy sitting on an arm chair while wearing Spider-Man pajamas and a nebulizer over his nose and mouth. "Went to the hospital again last night," she wrote. "3rd time in 6 weeks. Every time he gets a tiny cold he starts wheezing and his oxygen levels drop and heart rate goes up. Ultimately I'm being told he has Asthma even though he's pretty young to diagnose."
'It's scary to watch his vitals drop, hear his grunting and see his chest struggling so much to take a breath," she continued. "After he threw up for the 3rd time ( I think from coughing so much) ( no fever) I knew it was time to take him in."
Jesse said she plans on visiting an allergist to find out what could be causing her son's breathing problems, saying, "So confusing for a parent to have this issue and just not know what to do or why it's happening. He was born full term and 9 lbs and no issues until last year and becoming more chronic. He's a champ but it breaks my heart when he tells me 'mommy my chest hurts' in his sad little voice."
Forrest is Jessie and her husband's youngest child. The two are also parents to daughter Vivianne Rose, 6, and son Eric Jr., 5.
In her post, Jessie went on to thank fellow moms on Instagram for their past "amazing advice" about kids. "It's that kind of mamas helping mamas community on here i really appreciate," she said. "So I just want to know from this post if any other parents have experienced this? Other than an allergist and a specialist did this go away for your babies? I wonder if he's now allergic to pet hair?"
Her post drew more than 6,000 comments, including from actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, a mother of two. "Sending you so much love and prayers," she wrote. "My son has allergies and we have had too many trips to the er for breathing treatments. It's so scary. He will be okay Bc you are a great mom. Here for you."
