“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Shamea Morton shared a promising update after her newborn daughter had to undergo surgery for breathing issues.
“Hey Bestfriends! I have a praise report!🙏🏾 Shiloh’s 1st surgery went well @childrensatl 🥰,” Morton captioned an Instagram Reel of her and her husband Gerald Mwangi’s baby girl in the hospital Thursday.
The Bravolebrity, 40, then went on to tag the “amazing” doctor who has been helping her family through this tough time.
“I just thank God for her,” she continued. “She drilled through the tissue and bone that was completely blocking her nasal passages! Shiloh now has stents in her nose but she’s been extubated (no more tubes in her throat). She now has a nasal cannula and she’s in her mommy’s arms! .”
The “RHOA” star said the doctor “drilled through the tissue and bone that was completely blocking her nasal passages.”
Morton said she and her husband, Gerald Mwangi, will “know how successful” the surgery was once the stents are removed from their infant’s nose.
The former professional dancer said her daughter no longer has “tubes in her throat.”
Morton thanked the “amazing” doctor who performed surgery on the newborn.
“Giving God the praise for this victory! 🙌🏾 We will know how successful it was once the stents are removed,” Morton concluded.
Several of the reality star’s “RHOA” co-stars sent love in the comments section of her post.
Cynthia Bailey wrote, “praise God!!!🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽,” while Kenya Moore added, “Told you!!!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾.”

Sheree Whitfield, meanwhile, commented, “God is good 🙏🏽.”
Morton’s update comes a week after she announced the arrival of her and Mwangi’s second child via surrogacy. At the time, the former professional dancer said their baby girl was born prematurely on Valentine’s Day, weighing 6 pounds and 8 ounces.

Moments after her birth, Morton said Shiloh began having trouble breathing and had to “be put on 100% oxygen.”
“A few hours later she was intubated and placed on a ventilator,” she added. “That’s where we are now. 💔 I’ve been a mess, heart palpitations, anxiety etc…but Shiloh is a fighter.”
Morton and Mwangi, 60, tied the knot in July 2017 and welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Shya, in November 2018.
“I’m officially a MOM!” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “I have a whole new respect for women and our bodies. Childbirth is nothing short of a miracle. I feel so blessed to have had this experience.”
