Unexpected urgent surgery experience

While expressing her gratitude, Kourtney mentioned that she had three uncomplicated pregnancies before this and did not expect to have to undergo a life-threatening surgery suddenly.

“As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery.

“I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear. I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant.

“Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing. 🙏🏼🤍,” she wrote on her post.

Travis Barker’s gratitude to fans

American musician Travis Barker, also expressed his thankfulness for the sudden and miraculous turn of events.

He took to his social media page and extended his gratitude to his fans for their support and prayers.

Resuming of tour

Travis Barker, who is part of the rock band Blink-182 also announced that the tour will resume on Friday.

The band informed fans on Friday morning, 1 September, that they have been forced to postpone three dates on their European tour due to what was described as “an urgent family matter” that required drummer Travis Barker’s attention.
