“This week was scary,” Loch wrote alongside an Instagram photo on Wednesday of her holding the baby. “Watching Auggy get poked and prodded at the hospital and feeling completely helpless was a nightmare but he was such a trooper and I couldn’t be more thankful for the healthcare professionals who took such great care of our little guy.”

“Tough week for @thewendtgang,” he began, while sharing photos from the hospital. “This is an appreciation post for the best mother and teammate there is. Our family has covid and it is not taking it easy on any of us. Astrid had a terrible flu followed by Auggy getting a fever, which after being tested is covid as well.”

The reality TV personality continued, “August was admitted to the hospital and seeing him sick and in pain at 4 weeks old breaks our hearts. I got very sick yesterday and today is my worst yet, so I couldn’t go in the hospital, not even to bring Astrid dinner, and because of the new variant and the unknown around transmission, I’ve been staying clear of my little man until my symptoms are gone.”
