On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian West’s son Saint West was released from the hospital after spending three nights being treated for pneumonia, according to Kim’s Instagram account. Even though Kim K is reality royalty and a superstar celeb, in this case, she acted like nothing other than a loving mama. While revealing that Saint had been hospitalized for the serious respiratory illness (on Instagram), Kardashian-West also took the social media opp as a chance to give a great big shout out the medical staff who helped her little boy to heal.

No mama wants to even think about the possibility that her kiddo will get sick—let alone seriously sick. Spending night after night in the hospital with a sick kid is an exercise in fear and anxiety that no parent should have to endure. Luckily for the Kardashian-West clan, Saint is on the mend.

In her IG post, Kim wrote, “My precious baby boy is so strong! After spending three nights in the hospital & seeing my baby get multiple IV’s and hooked up to oxygen machines, our end of the year was challenging.” She went on to add, “I just want to thank every nurse & doctor out there who works so hard around the clock. We are so grateful for you all!”

Any parent who’s ever had a seriously sick child understands, empathizes with and appreciates Kim’s sweet sentiment. Even though Saint has certainly had to go through more than any 2-year-old should, Kardashian-West’s tot is (in his mama’s own words), “home and all better.”
