‘Bringing Up Bates’: Carlin and Evan’s Health Crisis – Family Coping With Dual Diagnosis
Bringing Up Bates stars Carlin Bates and Evan Stewart have already faced multiple health issues with their 6-month-old daughter, Layla. One of those was when the infant turned blue when she had difficulty breathing. The baby was diagnosed with a hole in her heart and now, the family has received more health news. Mom and dad both have tested positive for COVID-19.
Baby’s Health Problems
Bringing Up Bates fans have been wondering why Carlin and Evan have been distant lately. We know they are quite busy taking care of their six-month-old daughter, Layla Stewart. As fans may recall, the little girl has experienced multiple health scares since her premature birth. One of those was when the child turned blue because she couldn’t seem to catch her breath. The parents assumed that the breathing issues were due to her being premature. However, a closer look would reveal a startling diagnosis.
Layla Stewart Has Hole In Her Heart
Evan and Carlin’s baby was diagnosed with a hole in her heart. One of the symptoms can be difficulty breathing. The condition requires that Layla have more appointments with doctors than other babies her age. If that were not scary enough to deal with, the parents also had to worry about the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the major issues with the global health crisis is that the virus attacks the lungs.
Bringing Up Bates: Pandemic Precautions
Of course, Carlin and Evan did everything in their power to take precautions and keep Layla — and themselves — from getting infected with coronavirus. But as everyone knows, even the most cautious people can end up getting the illness.
