Ryan Thomas and his fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh posed with their tot for an adorable family selfie after he was rushed into hospital earlier this week
Ryan Thomas has shared a wholesome family snap following son Roman’s hospital dash.
The former Coronation Street actor, 37, uploaded an adorable black-and-white image with his fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh and their little one after he was taken into intensive care earlier this week.
Fitness guru Lucy and her partner Ryan shared their horror story with fans as they revealed they discovered their son was “blue in his cot”.
After being rushed into hospital – where the tot was put on a ventilator – he is now at home and recovering well, with the attention of his doting parents.
And it seems Roman is doing just fine as his dad wrote: ” Health is Wealth” alongside the image, adding a prayer emoji and a loveheart.
The trio looked like a picture-perfect family as they all giggled in the photo, spending quality time together.
Fans filled up the comments section with sweet messages, with one person writing: “It certainly is and so glad your trio is back together again.”
“Definitely health is wealth!!” a second person wrote.
“Such a lovely photo xx so glad he’s all good xx” a third added.
On Saturday, Lucy shared an update on Roman’s health.
She revealed that he now needs an inhaler twice a day and admitted that Roman is still suffering from the aftermath of his ordeal, as she tries to get him used to his new inhaler.
She shared a video of Roman playing with the inhaler, while she said: “I’m trying to get him used to his inhaler, he needs it twice a day now but he doesn’t like it.”
Lucy then asked him if he wanted to put some stickers on the inhaler, before giving it to one of his teddy bears.
The mum-of-one added: “I am hoping he gets used to it.”
She captioned the video: “He now needs an inhaler twice a day but he hates it.”
Lucy is yet to reveal the reason what condition Roman was suffering from when he was rushed to hospital.
She shared a picture of Roman in his hospital bed hooked up to wires.
Lucy told her followers: “As some of you may have noticed we haven’t been on social media lately.
“Just over a week ago I found Roman blue in his cot – probably every parent’s worst nightmare.
“Without going into too much detail it ended up with Roman being transferred to St Mary’s London intensive care being put on a ventilator.
“Thankfully we are now all home and Roman is back to his cheeky self.
“I am eternally grateful to the ambulance service for arriving so quickly, to Basildon hospital, the CATS team (children action transport services) St Mary’s London PICU * Cosmic charity (Caring for babies & children in intensive care).”
She added: “Although mentally we as a family may never fully recover, we feel extremely blessed to have our special boy home in our arms and it has truly opened our eyes to all the hardworking superheroes working in our hospitals who dedicate their lives to helping others and how extremely lucky we are to have these incredible medical services free for us all in the UK.
“Thank you NHS and all the charities that support the NHS.”
