Laura Rutledge’s baby improving after being airlifted to hospital

ESPN anchor Laura Rutledge is thankful that her baby son Jack is on the mend after going through a scary situation over the holidays.

On Christmas Day, Rutledge revealed the devastating news that Jack had to be airlifted to hospital for unspecified health concerns, but things have turned positive after he was seen again on Wednesday. .

“Thank you so much for your prayers for baby Jack. We've been feeling all of those things.” Rutledge tweeted Wednesday..

“I write this with gratitude for the miracle that happened to him, but I also know that many of these stories don't have happy endings. I think of all of you who have endured much worse. We have received a positive report from Jack's doctors at Connecticut Children's Hospital. No additional surgery was required and the pain has been significantly reduced. His recovery will take a long time, but we are hopeful for a full recovery. They praised the work of South Carolina's doctors. Thank you to everyone who reached out. We hope to see those kind smiles again.”

Rutledge is widely regarded as the host of “NFL Live,” which airs weekday afternoons on ESPN.

She was writing Monday about her baby's health scare in South Carolina.

“I was hesitant to post this because I didn't want anyone to think we were looking for sympathy. Unlike many parents, we lost our baby today after going to the hospital. I had to take him home.” Rutledge wrote.

“I praise God for that and pray for the many who are in even worse situations. I want to give a shout out to the wonderful care I received from the doctors, nurses and health care workers on duty over Christmas. Baby. Jack was airlifted by helicopter from Grand Strand Medical Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to MUSC Sean Jenkins Children's Hospital in Charleston. Both hospitals were very accommodating and quick to respond.

“Lauren, Eric, and Justin at Airlink Novant Health treated our little boy like their own and made us feel safe during the scariest moments. Thank you to the people. The first responders are amazing.”
