Michelle Malkin has earned herself national acclaim in the Republican world for her unapologetically conservative views. She’s known for being outspoken and unafraid to take on any political opponent or detractor.
However, right now, Malkin needs our prayers for a reason that has nothing to do with politics.
Malkin recently opened up about a very serious personal struggle her family is going through. According to Conservative Tribune, Malkin’s teenage daughter, Veronica, is suffering from a mysterious medical respiratory issue that doctors can’t figure out.
Malkin said that it all started around Mother’s Day, when Veronica began having problems breathing. “She ‘couldn’t get a good breath,” and began gasping and struggling for air every few minutes. Her family took her to the ER twice, and she was given ibuprofen for “costochondritis” and then aluterol to “open up her airways.”
“The problem is that all the various tests and exams indicate she’s getting plenty of oxygen. Her lungs, heart and vocal cords are all ‘normal,’ and yet she describes a chronic feeling that she’s ‘drowning,'” Malkin continued. “Every day begins with gasping beyond her control, multiple times a minute, nonstop, every hour of every day, until she reaches a point of exhaustion at 1 or 2 in the morning.”
This news is absolutely terrible. Nobody likes to see their child suffer, and there’s also nothing scarier than your child having a mysterious medical issue that you are helpless to fix. All we can do is pray for Veronica, and the entire Malkin family, as well as the doctors and nurses who are working day and night to save her.
