Katie Price’s son Harvey screamed ‘I want my mummy’ before intensive care dash
Katie Price has given a devastating insight into what happened when her eldest son was rushed to hospital last week as he struggled to breathe
Katie Price has opened up about the heartbreaking moment she was kept away from her son Harvey while he was admitted to intensive care.
The teenager, who has Prader-Willi syndrome, was rushed to hospital earlier this month after struggling to breathe.
Katie, 42, said Harvey’s last words to her were ‘I want my mummy’ before he was taken under the care of medical staff.
Mum-of-five Katie was not allowed to follow her son due to coronavirus restrictions in place at the hospital.
Speaking about the terrifying ordeal in this week’s new magazine, Katie said: “It’s awful seeing him in there with all the tubes in him. And when they put him into intensive care, he was ill but he still managed to shout ‘I want my mummy.’
“I was standing outside the room with Junior and they wouldn’t let me in. It was horrible.”
On Sunday Katie was finally allowed to visit Harvey in hospital and brought his younger siblings Bunny, five, and Jett, six, along with her.
Harvey was also well enough to thank supporters for sending their best wishes.
In an Instagram video shared after her son was discharged from intensive care, mum Katie was heard asking: “Harv, what do you want to say to all those people who have given you lovely messages?”
Harvey responded: “Thank you, everyone.”
Speaking to fans today, Katie said Harvey’s health scare had left her ‘drained’ as she filmed herself getting a vitamin B12 shot for her YouTube channel.
“I’m so knackered that someone recommended me to have some kind of vitamin injection – I think it’s a B12 or something,” she informed her viewers.
“There’s just one problem…if you know me well enough, you know what the problem is. I hate needles,” admitted Katie.
The former glamour model was then seen hyperventilating as an assistant tried to jab her in the bum with the shot.
Katie gasped: “Woah. What the hell? Jesus Christ! What, that all has to go in? What, all of that?
“That’s huge! That can’t be normal. Oh my god that hurts. Oh Jesus Christ what are you doing? Oh that hurts you’ve got to take it out.”
