“He was extremely sick last night so Christina took him to the emergency room,” he said before explaining his son’s medical condition. “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.”

The Flip or Flop star updated fans on Brauden’s recovery before explaining that the whole family worked through the “very scary day” together. “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❤️,” El moussa wrote. “Very scary day, but we all banned together as a family to get through it. Thank you to the amazing Doctors and nurses who took such incredible care of our boy.”
