Kourtney Kardashian Reveals Baby Rocky's Rare Condition and Emergency Surgery

Kourtney Kardashian recently shared the critical details of her emergency fetal surgery, revealing a rare condition that afflicted her unborn son, Rocky Thirteen Barker.

In the latest episode of Hulu's The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian opened up about the ordeal, expressing relief that she and her son are now recuperating well.

According to Daily Mail, the episode, filmed last fall, delves deep into the emotional and medical challenges faced by the 45-year-old founder of Lemme. Kourtney Kardashian, who was seven months pregnant, was preparing to welcome her child with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker when unexpected complications arose.

With a dire diagnosis, doctors discovered fluid in the baby’s lung, a rare condition that required immediate medical intervention. During her confessional, Kardashian poignantly captured the fear and gratitude she felt, saying, "Baby Rocky had to have fetal surgery for fluid in his lung."

Kourtney's Rollercoaster of Emotions

The emergency surgery was successfully conducted a couple of months prior to filming the episode. Kourtney recalled the harrowing experience: "A couple months ago, we had a terrifying scare where I had to have emergency fetal surgery." Her candidness painted a vivid picture of the intense worry she endured.

Post-surgery, the challenges were far from over. Kardashian reported that, initially, Rocky's condition seemed to improve. But soon, the fluid started accumulating again in his lungs, renewing her anxiety.

To cope with this ongoing health scare, Kardashian turned to unconventional methods. She watched a documentary titled Heal, which emphasized the potential health benefits of positive thinking. "I was definitely filled with fear after the surgery," she admitted.

The Healing Power of Positivity and Prayer

Touched by the documentary, the reality star began incorporating positive affirmations and prayer into her daily routine. "I started talking to the baby every day, saying my prayers, and after I had that mindset shift, the fluid was completely gone," she shared.

The documentary inspired hope and motivated Kardashian to adopt a more optimistic outlook. This spiritual and mental approach seemed to correlate with a positive turn in Rocky's health, as the fluid disappeared without further medical issues, leading to a complication-free remainder of the pregnancy.

In September, Kardashian took to Instagram to communicate her gratitude and immense relief to her followers. "And thank you, God, for this successful surgery. I'm honestly just so grateful, I have no words."

A Grateful Family Celebration

Kourtney and Travis Barker welcomed their son, Rocky, on November 1, marking a joyous occasion after months of stress. Over Father’s Day weekend, Kourtney shared intimate moments on social media, expressing gratitude for Travis's supportive role.

The celebration highlighted appreciation and love for Travis as a father. This episode of The Kardashians showcased the fragility of prenatal health and the importance of mental resilience and familial support.

Kourtney Kardashian, at age 45, continues to be an influential figure, balancing her thriving business ventures and pivotal moments of motherhood. Her experiences regarding her emergency fetal surgery shed light on the challenges faced by expectant parents and the power of unwavering hope and positivity in overcoming adversity.
