Teddi Mellencamp’s husband feels ‘tested’ ahead of baby’s neurosurgery
Teddi Mellencamp’s husband, Edwin Arroyave, is leaning on his faith after the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star revealed their 4-month-old daughter Dove will undergo neurosurgery for Lambdoid Craniosynostosis.
“Life is always going to punch you in the face,” Arroyave, 43, began a lengthy Instagram post on Tuesday, posting alongside a photo of himself and his daughter.
“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,” his post continued. “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.”
Arroyave went on to say that despite the challenges the last two months have brought, he is “stronger in [his] faith” and wrote that “God has a plan.”
“I’m going to get through this and stay the course … Push forward with unwavering faith and focus on the things you can control. Don’t quit.”
His friend and dad-to-be Beau Clark commented, “I just screenshoted this. Very powerful words man. Damn. Your faith is something I strive to have. Love you guys [sic].”
According to the St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Lambdoid Craniosynostosis is a premature fusion of the bones in an infant’s skull.
Mellencamp, who announced the news earlier this week, said that Dove’s recovery is expected to be “about a week in the hospital and a couple weeks at home with a very high success rate.”
“Please keep baby Dove in your prayers and if you have had a child with this same surgery, please let me know below, as I would love any additional insight and support,” she wrote.
