After a very scary Thanksgiving week, Jimmie Allen’s 6-week-old daughter Zara James is getting better. He and his wife, Alexis both posted updates following their daughter’s hospital stay.
Alexis described their baby’s condition as “brutal symptoms of RSV.” She had stopped breathing and was put on oxygen, but is now recovering and breathing on her own.
Days earlier, Jimmie had written about his frustration with a doctor that he felt wasn’t paying enough attention to her symptoms and had sent her home still sick. Among his online comments, he had written, “Attention Doctors , if the parent of your one month old patient tells you the child having a hard time breathing and the only thing your lazy self wants to do is check heart and temperature, find another career. Your job is to save lives, so do it.”
Jimmie last updated fans on Friday (Nov. 26) and said that she was doing a lot better. He thanked everyone for their well wishes, positive energy, and prayer.
