Louise Thompson’s fans have said they are sending “healing vibes” as she spends her 14th day in hospital.
The Made In Chelsea star’s fiancé Ryan Libbey told fans at the weekend that Thompson – who he shares two year old-son Leo-Hunter with – was in hospital and that “we don’t know when she will be ready to come home yet”. Libbey didn’t give any further details about the TV star’s condition and why she’s in hospital, but fans are worried.
Many have headed to Instagram to pen supportive comments on the last post shared by Thompson, who has been open about battling health problems since suffering life-threatening complications during Leo-Hunter’s birth.
What has Ryan Libbey said?
Libbey posted a message on his Instagram Story at the weekend saying that Thompson had been in hospital for several days at that point.
He later followed it up with a post saying that he had taken their son to see his mum. “We just got back from visiting mummy in hospital,” he wrote.
“That was the first time Leo has seen her for 13 days. It was a difficult, emotional, confusing experience for him but fortunately after a few minutes Leo was cuddling up in bed with mummy singing twinkle, twinkle little star. ‘The video I took is probably the most precious thing I now own.”
“Louise is recovering well,” he added, thanking fans for all of their messages.
Star has opened up about health before
Thompson has been open about her health struggles in the past.
In 2018 the reality TV star was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, which the NHS says is “a long-term condition where the colon and rectum become inflamed”.
Then she was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after suffering complications while giving birth to Leo-Hunter in 2021.
Speaking about it in 2022, she told fans on social media: “Mental health is the most cruel, invisible disease out there but I want you to know you are not alone.”
Talking about what she had been through, Thompson said: “I was scared of everything in my house…I was scared of my body, I couldn’t look at my body, I couldn’t look in the mirror… I couldn’t see, I couldn’t smell, I couldn’t talk… when I would talk I would panic because every word that came out of my mouth didn’t make sense.”
“I was not alive, I couldn’t have a normal thought,” she said. “My brain basically shut down as a result of nearly dying twice. When something really traumatic happens to you your brain can’t process it properly and your memories get stuck and it means that you live in fear.”
Fans have sent messages of support to star
The TV star has been inundated with messages from well-wishers after Libbey explained that she was in hospital. Many have posted messages on Instagram telling her they miss her on social media and urging: “Stay strong.”
“Sending love, Louise,” said one. “Hope you are OK.” “Missing your presence!” said someone else. “Sending healing vibes!” “Come on Louise you have this, fight strong beautiful girl!!” said someone else.
Another fan chimed in: “Sending you and your beautiful family warmth and strength, hope you feel better soon dear Louise.”
“Sending you all my positive thoughts and energy to you Louise,” added another fan. “I hope you feel better soon.”
