AceShowbiz - Jimmie Allen has got something off his chest following his daughter's recent medical emergency. The country music star has blasted some "lazy doctors" in his home state of Tennessee after his one-month-old baby girl was rushed to a local hospital because she "stopped breathing."
The father of two took to his Instagram Story on Tuesday night, November 23 to express his displease with the healthcare workers. "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 rate and temperature send them home, find another career," he wrote. "Your job is to save lives so do it."
Blaming those "lazy doctors" for his daughter's worsened condition, the 36-year-old sarcastically said, "Now thanks to the lazy doctors at a hospital in TN that just sent our daughter home, our daughter Zara lost color stopped breathing and is being rushed to another hospital."
He, however, was grateful to paramedics who saved his daughter's life. The "Best Shot" singer added, "Thanks to the amazing EMT team that brought back Zara's color she can breath [sic] again. Gonna be a rough night."
Jimmie's 5-week-old daughter Zara James as well as 20-month-old daughter Naomi Bettie, whom he shares with wife Alexis Allen, have been sick since Sunday. In an Instagram Story shared on Monday, the worried mom also shared her experience with medical staff at a hospital.
"Turned away by hospital yesterday AM Ambulance at 2AM," the registered nurse complained. "Basically if your child isn't blue at the lips they will not have answers for you. That's been my last 24 hours." She added, "Not one doctor has taken the time to actually listen and make sure she's really okay - 10 min in and outs [sic]. What this nurse mama is seeing/hearing is so frightening."
Alexis then thanked her followers for their love and support, writing, "Thank you everyone for the kind words and for thinking of us during this time. Hopefully, I'll have more answers today."
On Wednesday, Alexis gave an update on her baby Zara's condition. "The hardest days of my life. She is stable but still needing oxygen and suctioning frequently," she wrote in another Story. "Will give you an update once Z is healthy and heading home with us. Thank you so much for all of your kind words and prayers. It truly means the world to our family."
