Christy Carlson Romano Takes 5-Month-Old Daughter to Hospital: I'm 'Shook'
So scary. Christy Carlson Romano took her 5-month-old daughter, Sophia, to the hospital after she noticed “swelling on the side of her neck.”
“The end of last week was rough!” the actress, 35, captioned a Monday, August 12, Instagram post. “I took [Sophia] to the doctor and they sent me immediately to CHOC Children’s Hospital. When we got there, we had to stay overnight to give her antibiotic in an IV! I was shook. I cried a lot. But strangely my baby and I feel even more bonded.”
The Even Stevens alum added, “I struggled with my milk supply the first go so I’ve been really happy with being able to nurse her on demand. Some days it’s super hard to balance. OK — most days it’s super hard to balance. But the bond between mama and baby is such a miracle that we persist and stay strong for them.”
Romano updated her followers on her daughter’s health in the comments, writing, “Thank you all so much! Sophia is on antibiotics for Pariotitis,” which is an inflammation of one or both major salivary glands.
“My husband and I have been trying to prep her for this big life change that’s about to happen,” the Kim Possible alum told Us at the time. “I’ve told her that her little sister, whose name is Sophia, … [is] like a little frog jumping around and swimming around in my belly. So I’ve been trying to get her to feel the baby, and she’s been kind of jumping her fingers around my stomach. … I think there’s some bonding there.”
